Qualcomm is positioning itself in a big way for the mobile world with its new Snapdragon 835 processor, expanding its market share of the 10nm built chip - scooping up market share from MediaTek and its new Helio X30 chip.
DigiTimes reports that its sources said: "Despite reports of a low yield rate of the 10nm chips, Qualcomm has continued to land orders for its Snapdragon 835 from the global major smartphone vendors with shipments to grow significantly starting the second quarter".
Qualcomm is continuing to get new orders from customers for its Snapdragon 835, with improved software and firmware being released for the platform, according to the sources. I could place bets on Qualcomm owning the high-end smartphone processor game this year, as the Snapdragon 835 is shaping up into quite the beast, and will power Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones that will be announced later this month, and released in April.
