Samsung reportedly conducting intensive testing on the Snapdragon 820

Samsung didn’t go with the Snapdragon 810 for this year’s flagship devices instead it opted for its own Exynos 7420 processor but that doesn’t mean that the company will never return to Qualcomm processors for high-end devices. It has been rumored multiple times that the company might consider using the Snapdragon 820, internally known as Jungfrau, in the Galaxy S7 next year and a new report out of Korea claims that Samsung has already started conducting intensive testing on the upcoming Qualcomm processor.

The report suggests that Samsung has still not made up its mind about whether it should stick with its own Exynos processor for next year’s flagship or go with the Snapdragon 820 that’s being intensively tested at its labs. The tests are going to provide Samsung with data that’s going to make this decision easier. As far as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 is concerned it’s expected to feature a 64-bit quad-core CPU with 14nm FinFET which promises 35 percent improvement over the Snapdragon 810, Adreno 530 GPU, LP-DDR4 RAM support, Cat. 10 LTE modem as well as support for 4K60 fps encode/decode, UFS and eMMC 5.1 storage solutions.

They will weigh both and see what works better. The exynos processors have mediocre gpu packages despite the cpu’s impressive power. Samsung should put in a more capable gpu that complements the powerful cpu for their next SoC. The SD820 would be very balanced, with good cpu and the tried-and-true adreno gpus. I always thought that the recent adreno gpus are superior to the mali gpus. I cannot play GTA san andreas without having horrible lags and graphical glitches on the note 5. It runs very well on the HTC One M9…

Didn’t Sammobile already report on this a couple of weeks ago? Well I personally want to see a Exynos in the next Samsung flagship, Samsung really got the buzz going by choosing something other than a Snapdragon, I don’t think the S6 would be as talked about this year if not for that decision, if they had gone with the 810 I’d expect more reviews stating how dispite it’s sleek looks, the lack of MicroSD and Removable battery make the G4, or M9 a better purchase. I’m still hoping to see the mongoose SoC from Samsung sometime soon, this could… Read more »

SD 820 is 35% Faster than SD 810, means SD 820 = Exynos 7420 !!
so S7 will rock a Exynos 7422 😀

The SD 820 will probably be a quadcore, not octacore, so it would still be the better choice

There you have it guys and girls, what we’ve been looking for. “UFS and eMMC 5.1 storage solutions.” <- <- <- Galaxy S7, UFS internal AND SD card slot. Note 6, UFS internal AND SD card slot. They'll probably give the Note 6 an IR Blaster back as well. Battery? Who knows. Wish these companies would stop making them thinner and start making them easier to hold AND with longer batteries. Galaxy S7, Note 6 to be "fixed" versions of the 2015 mess, coming soon in 2016…. Sad, wonder how many will have moved to HTC, LG, Sony or Nexus… Read more »

I don’t know about that. It still stands that sd cards make your phone lag over time, and that is no good. I would always pick software stability over sd cards.

If you don’t want/like/need it, just leave the slot empty. It’s an easy choice.

Sure it is easy for me to not use it. But I’m saying on a Samsung standpoint, they might not want to add an sd card back because if people use sd cards again and the phones get laggy, they would lose the image they just obtained

Really? Can you record uhd movies in that 64 GB class 10 card? Can you watch them with no lag?

CAN U PUT UHD MOVIES ON ONLY 64 GB NOTE 5 (8 GB GOES FOR SAMSHIT DATA) AND APPS AND GAMES ALSO EAT MOST SPACE.

64 GB WILL NOT AVAILABLE IN MOST PLACES LIKE INDIA !

SO WHERE U WILL PUT ALL UHD MOVIE ? IN 32 GB INBUILT (REALLY ONLY 25 GB) OR IN 128 GB CLASS 10…YES WE CAN WATCH WITHOUT A SINGLE LAG IF U HAVE PROPER PLAYER.

It’s the sd card readers that make your phone lag and nothing to do with the sd cards, they also all go at the sd,e slow speeds

On a small note the CPU having ufs and Emma 5.1 support means nothing, they have to add 2 x controllers, and the 7420’hadnthe. Same setup, I.e. This is not going. To get your sd card reader back
It be cheaper for Samsung just to add 128hb of had to the phone than add the sd card reader

Moving to HTC, Sony or Nexus? I doubt it. Maybe some people would move to LG, if the LG G4 Pro has Micro SD card slot, IR blaster and removable battery. Maybe they could move to a chinese company like Lenovo, Xiaomi or Huawei, although I doubt it, because americans and europeans don’t “confide” in them. Anyway, Lenovo, Xiaomi and Huawei’s market share is increasing every day.
