We have gotten used to some flagship smartphones on the market rocking an 8-core processor, but Qualcomm will be kicking things up a notch or two with their upcoming Snapdragon 818 processor.
The Snapdragon 818 processor will be the first 10-core chipset, with four low-power Cortex-A53 cores at 1.2GHz, two mid-power Cortex-A53 cores at 1.6GHz and four more high-power Cortex-A72 cores rocking along at 2GHz. All of this will be baked onto the 20nm process, include LPDDR4 support and LTE-A Cat10 support, too.
We should expect to see some smartphones with this processor in the future, but for now, nothing is confirmed just yet so we'll have to wait to get off this rumor train for now, and jump onto the next ride. For now, what do you think about the world of 10-core smartphones? It will be coming sooner than you think.
