Samsung has confirmed that the phone would be launched on August 23rd, but according to a new report, it won't feature the Snapdragon 836 but will instead be powered by Snapdragon 835, the same SoC used in S8 and HTC U11.

The same report says that Qualcomm plans to introduce the Snapdragon 836 with the Google Pixel 2. We saw the same scenario last year when Qualcomm debuted the Snapdragon 821 with Google's Pixel.

This also means that LG's V30 and other phones which will be launched at IFA likely won't feature the Snapdragon 836.

The Snapdragon 835 was introduced in January and its successor, the Snapdragon 836, should come with certain incremental upgrades. The new SoC should offer slightly faster speeds, and we are sure we will see the Snapdragon 836 in devices announced in the Q4.
