Samsung Hoards Snapdragon 835 To Force Competitors To Use Outdated 821 Chipset
Samsung Galaxy 8 is bound to launch its newest handset but before they unveil this new phone, they plan to make the reveal more exciting by preventing other phone companies from having access to the latest Snapdragon 835 chip. An anonymous source reveals that the chips will not be available until Samsung launches the Galaxy 8.
Snapdragon 835 Chips
Since the Snapdragon 835 is considered to be more efficient than Snapdragon 821. The chipset which will utilize Samsung's 10nm FinFET process is currently in high demand and if Samsung's move to hoard the chips is true, the international version of the S8 might not use Qualcomm's latest chipset.
Other handset manufacturers need to wait until April to get their hand on the new chipset. Since Qualcomm and Samsung were partners in building the Snapdragon 835, it is not surprising for the South Korean giant to have priority in acquiring the chipset for its new flagship phone.
LG G6 Chips
If this insider info is to be believed, LG G6 might not be able to use the latest chipset if Samsung hoards the latest chips from Snapdragon. The same would apply to HTC U Ultra. This could mean that the newest handsets from LG and HTC are going to use Snapdragon 821.
If LG plans to stick to its original launch date, they need to compromise and use the Snapdragon 821. It should be noted that this is not going to be the first time for LG to use an older chipset. The LG G4 had to use older ships since there were thermal issues and the company did not want to take the risk. After what happened to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, tech companies have been going out of their way to ensure that the devices they are going to launch will not exhibit battery issues. This time, it seems that Samsung will go all out to make sure that the Galaxy S8's release is going to be a highly anticipated event.
