Samsung has employed Exynos chipsets in most of its flagships lately, but now seems to be ready to make the switch back to the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. According to a report by SamMobile, known to provide accurate details about Samsung, citing a Korean site claims that the company is aggressively testing the Snapdragon 820.
There have been rumours about Samsung considering the Snapdragon 820 for its next-gen Galaxy S7, and now there are more reports confirming the same. The company is said to have ditched the Snapdragon 810 for its Galaxy S6 models as the chipsets were said to be facing heating issues. The latest 820 are said to be built from scratch and the most powerful chipset from Qualcomm. It is also believed to have resolved the heating problems.
However, the company is reportedly only testing and only after conducting the tests it will decide whether to employ the chipset or not.
“The Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 is expected to be an improved version by 35 percent over its predecessor. It is supposed to feature a 64-bit quad-core CPU with 14nm FinFET, Adreno 530 GPU, LP-DDR4 RAM support, Cat. 10 LTE modem as well as support for 4K60 fps encode/decode, UFS and eMMC 5.1 storage solutions,”
