Samsung is reportedly securing most of Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 835 processors for its upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone, according to sources of Forbes.


Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 835 processor has some industry leading features and technology, including 1Gbps speeds over LTE - and so much more. Samsung has worked closely with Qualcomm over the years, but the use of the Snapdragon 810 and its overheating issues had Samsung shift to using its own Exynos processors in some of its Galaxy handsets. The Galaxy S8 is shaping up beautifully in leaked videos of the handset, with what's sure to be the best smartphone display yet.

Samsung is working even closer with Qualcomm in regards to using their next-gen Snapdragon 835 processor in its upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone, which is sure to be one of the best selling smartphones of 2017. According to Forbes' sources "Samsung has first dibs" on Snapdragon 835 processors for its new phone.

We should expect Samsung to reveal its new Galaxy S8 on April 14, and available the next day on April 15.
