The race of revealing the most performance effective Android smartphone is on. The South Korean Tech giant Samsung is out for making its next Galaxy unit, the Galaxy S8 as exclusive and extraordinary.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 has been seen to present basic improvements which include an enhanced camera, a higher screen display, and a curved form. Alongside that, the smartphone giant is also excited about making its products the world’s tenaciously fastest Android smartphone ever made. When Samsung has been ranked among the top digital devices’ manufacturers of the globe, it’s not leaving anything to chance while it comes to efficiently finishing its S8 project. The group has immediately tagged Qualcomm for being its partner in creating the quickest processor.
The range of the chip manufacturer’s reputation can no more be avoided. Nearly every Android mobile device in the market these days comprises of a unit of Qualcomm processor. The rise of the Snapdragon 835 set has further strengthened the company’s significance in the online world.
It is being predicted that the 835 will become the fastest core processing device ever made. What manufactures this chipset even more notable is its comprehensive or far-reaching functional coverage.
Apart from the fact that Qualcomm launched it as the globe’s quickest, this electronic item also sets its wide-range effect in releasing the smartphone’s complete functionality. Battery capacity is a complementary element considering that power approach is a basic element of the entire performance of the unit.
As of the moment, both Qualcomm and Samsung are ardent in revealing the thinnest processor. With many devices stooping the tiny frame, it is realisable that thin-bodied mobiles must contain tinier hardware parts.
Considering that the Snapdragon 835 will be introduced amid the early quarter of 2017, it is possible that the Galaxy S8 will be accommodating the processor into its system.
As per sources, Apple is currently in talks to acquire Imagination Technologies, which is the British chip design company, known for its PowerVR series of graphics processors. It is well known to all the hardware followers that Apple is not a stranger to the PowerVR GPU lineup of the Imagination Technologies. It has picked this technology only for using in its own in-house SoC designs since it designed the A4 chipset.
The theory says that Apple will acquire Imagination Technology, which will bring the manufacturer one step closer to designing its mobile SoC chipset in-house completely. It is reported that this company is currently licensing the ARM architecture for its CPU cores and will work alongside the semiconductor manufacturers such as Samsung to turn its designs into real chipsets.
However, there are reports that this move from the company will position it closer to the Qualcomm in terms of development scope, without selling its chipsets to the other mobile phone manufacturers. It is reported that Qualcomm designs entire mobile SoC platforms at its own such as Kryo CPUs, Adreno graphics processor and X series modem technologies.
Earlier this year, Imagination Technologies announced that its CEO Hossein Yassaie will step down and start restructuring its business. The company followed up in March with an announcement of 350 job losses and a renewed focus on the PowerVR graphics technology, which is one of the most important aspect of business.
However, it still remains to be seen that what Imagination Technologies will mean for other SoC developers who are currently using the graphics technologies. The list of these SoC developers includes MediaTek, Intel and many mobile chip makers for Android markets that are using ARM Mali GPU packages.
Apple is becoming much independent with its SoC development, and was taking help from PA Semi to design its own CPU cores back in 2008. However, we can say that for a company that markets the graphics processor heavily, a move like this is a logical step.
