Rumor: Samsung Galaxy S7 Early Testing Exynos and Snapdragon
Samsung, world’s largest smartphone manufacturer is reportedly examining Qualcomm Snapdragon and its own Exynos on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7.
The reason behind testing both Qualcomm and Exynos is to figure which one will be worthy enough to push through Samsung Galaxy S7 without sweating. The question is, is Samsung ready to let the 810 overheating mess slip by?
Well that can only be confirmed after Qualcomm passes the stability and speed tests. The latest flagship smartphone from Samsung the Galaxy S6 came with Exynos and ditched Qualcomm’s Application Processor (AP).
However, the two chipsets are still circling the next flagship smartphone. According to the source, this project is named ‘Jungfrau’ by Samsung Electronics and it is developing two separate versions of Galaxy S7. One with Exynos and the other one with Snapdragon, the versions of both chips remain unknown for now.
After only one year apart, Samsung and Qualcomm are again finding the path towards each other. Reportedly, the Exynos will be provided to domestic models while the Qualcomm Snapdragon version for international models.
While the news says that Galaxy S7 might come with both chipsets, the foreign media confirms that Exynos 7422 (e-POP), the all in one chip, will be released in September for Galaxy Note 5. As for Galaxy S7, anything is possible.
There is a possibility of Samsung wanting better and newer technology to be on the next flagship phone that only Qualcomm can offer. It can also point towards the fact the Qualcomm has a competitive edge in the market and international users are still more inclined towards it.
