Snapdragon 820 went official in August, however, at that time, it wasn’t sure which devices would be using the new SoC, and considering the notoriety the Snapdragon 810 had, thinking about the Snapdragon 820 wasn’t the smartest idea. Samsung decided to stay away from the Snapdragon 810 and went with their own Exynos SoC when they released the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and Note 5. However, the latest rumour suggests that Samsung might be going back to Qualcomm with their upcoming flagship that will be unveiled next year.
The rumour comes from a reliable source, according to the source, Samsung is going to release the Galaxy S7 with both the Exynos and Snapdragon 820 SoC. Obviously, this change will be variant dependent just like it was with the Galaxy S5 and previous models. The report also suggests that the Snapdragon variant will be hitting the the US and China markets and the rest of the variants will have the Exynos 8890.
Samsung and Qualcomm didn’t give any official word on what’s to come but we’ll make sure to keep you posted about it.
