Samsung hasn't had quite the success it wanted with the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, so it launched the new Galaxy S6 edge+ and even still, the company isn't hitting the sales numbers it wanted to.
When Samsung made the new smartphones, it didn't use Qualcomm processors in some markets because of the issues that the Snapdragon 810 was having with thermal throttling, and Samsung made the good decision to use its own super-fast Exynos processors instead. Well, as Samsung prepares its next generation Galaxy S7 smartphone, the company is likely to use Qualcomm processors once again - but the new Snapdragon 820 processors based on Qualcomm's custom Kryo cores.
The Snapdragon 820 is a bloody fast system-on-chip, so expect new world records to be created when Samsung launches the Galaxy S7 next year.
