We all know that production of Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 has not yet been mass-produced on the market, and TSMC is already working on the new Snapdragon 845 that will see the light next year 2018.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC Spotted On Company Site
When devices with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processors have not yet arrived, the company has already started working on its next model: the Snapdragon 845. Several reports indicate that Qualcomm has already begun development of its next SoC, which would be 7nm and that possibly joins the high-end 2018.
According to the information published in GizChina, TSMC would have started the process of 7nm in April, and they would already be testing with the first prototypes of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.
Its launch would be planned for early 2018, which fits us perfectly since it would come from the hand of the Samsung Galaxy S9 or the Xiaomi Mi 7, as it has already happened this year. However, if we notice then it is clear that Snapdragon 845 processors will be way smaller than 10nm processors, so, we can expect that both devices (Galaxy S9 and Mi 7) will be much thinner.
This new 7nm processor would have between 25 and 35 percent more power compared to the Snapdragon 835, so we can expect great things from said SoC. We can not forget that the Snapdragon 835 is the most powerful processor till to the date, and the arrival of 845 implies 30% more power in just under a year.
However, Qualcomm will not be the only company to manufacture this kind of processors. As NVIDIA and MediaTek would also join 7nm, so we may have enough surprises this 2018, especially from China.
