The upcoming Snapdragon 845 isn't expected until Q1 2018, but it will be based on the 10nm Low Power Early (LPE) FinFET process compared to the second-gen Low Power Plus (LPP) process from Samsung. In April, Ryan Lee, Vice President of Foundry Marketing at Samsung Electronics said: "With our successful 10LPE production experience, we have commenced production of the 10LPP to maintain our leadership in the advanced-node foundry market. 10LPP will be one of our key process offerings for high performance mobile, computing and network applications, and Samsung will continue to offer the most advanced logic process technology".

 

Snapdragon 845 is expected to rock four unannounced Cortex A57 cores alongside four low-power Cortex A53 cores, joined by Adreno 630 graphics. Qualcomm's super-fast Snapdragon X20 LTE modem will be used, offering 1.2Gbps speeds on Cat 18. Qualcomm will reportedly include support for UFS 2.1 storage, as well as the faster and more power efficient LPDDR4X RAM.

ASUS ZenFone AR with Google Tango comes this summer

By: Lana Jelic | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: 3 days, 2 hours ago

It's been a long 5 months of waiting, but ASUS' new phone that is capable of both Google Tango and Google Daydream is confirmed to be launching this summer.

 

This phone is a big deal because it's the only phone to date to support both Google's AR and VR platforms. Not only that, but it does so in a significantly smaller device than the first Google Tango device from Lenovo.

While it is great that this new phone will ship with both Google's AR and VR platforms, there are concerns that it won't sell as well because it is shipping with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, one that's been shipping in phones for quite some time and has been outdone by the Snapdragon 835.

LG V30 expected to get Daydream support

By: Lana Jelic | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: 3 days, 17 hours ago

LG's V30 has been rumored ever since they launched the V20 last year, more speculation started to come out once the G6 came out, especially regarding which processor it would run. Because the LG G6 runs a Snapdragon 821, the expectation is that the more premium V30 will run a newer and more powerful Snapdragon 835 processor.

However, in addition to the Snapdragon 835 processor, it appears that the V30 will also be capable of supporting or meeting the requirements to support Google's Daydream VR platform. This is a big deal because LG doesn't currently have a Daydream supported device.

 

One of the big reasons for this is that OLED displays are needed in order to meet Google's display performance requirements for Daydream.
