Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 can be the first system made in a 7-nanometer process. This information is disclosed by the known leakster.
Qualcomm quite unexpectedly can get into the top of the race again for more efficient processors. Yesterday we learned that the manufacturer is ready for the X24 modem , which allows you to exceed 2 Gbps when downloading data. The X24 modem, like the previous ones, would be on the board of the latest smartphones. Galaxy S9 will debut with the X20 modem, which reaches 1.2 Gbps and will be accompanied by the Snapdragon 845. Most likely, the X24 will appear in the next system, which will be Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. We anticipate that it will be on board the Samsung Galaxy S10 or Galaxy X – the name of this model has still not been confirmed. The X24 modem is to be made in a 7 nm process and hit for sale in the first devices at the end of this year. Interestingly, however, such a process is envisaged by Samsung in its mass production of equipment only at the beginning of 2019. We can therefore safely assume that Snapdragon 855 with LTE X24 modem will be made in 7-nanometers . Thus, it can be the first system created in such a process. https://twitter.com/rquandt/status/963937243986649088?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.phonearena.com%2Fnews%2FMore-evidence-that-Snapdragon-855-SoC-in-Galaxy- S10-will-be-7nm_id102502 Will it happen in reality – we will see in a few months. Especially since TSMC also has a 7 nm chrap and such systems would appear in this year's iPhones. Source: Roland Quandt
