The Samsung Galaxy S8 has not yet been introduced and its successor processor is already mentioned, it would be 7 nm and would be manufactured by Samsung itself.
In the absence of a month for the MWC, and with doubts whether Samsung will bring this year or not the S8, it all points to the Korean manufacturer will incorporate a Qualcomm chip almost exclusively . The manager of giving life to the S8 will be the Snapdragon 835, moving away from its more direct rivals like LG that will mount the "old" Snapdragon 821 in LG G6 .
But Samsung has the spotlight on another battle, the 7nm processors that would reach the general public in 2018, just for the launch of the S9. It would not be the first time that Samsung bets to include its own processor in its flagship, we recall the stir that formed a couple of years ago when Samsung appeared on the scene of the MWC and introduced the Samsung Galaxy S6 with the Exynos 7420.
In the S7 came back Qualcomm but without leaving aside its own processors, Samsung launched two versions: one with the Snapdragon 820 and another with the Exynos 8890.
Why do manufacturers choose one or another processor?
Once during a conversation with the product manager of a major brand he told me that they simply opted for the best processor of the moment. If you are looking for a high quality product, and at that time Qualcomm is the one that makes the best processor, the best option is to mount it on your computer. In addition to using the best chipset, working with it ensures you know it and improve your own products.
For now we know that Samsung cites an aggressive roadmap that will conclude with a 7 nm processor in early 2018; Although to get to it still has a long work improving the current 10 nm it uses in the high end and the 14 nm it is riding in the midrange.
The difference that can be observed by the end user with the change of the technology of the processors is an improvement in the overall performance of the equipment and the duration of the battery, something that we give more importance every day in a terminal of high range.
