A new report suggests that Samsung might have exclusivity on Qualcomm’s latest chipset, the Snapdragon 820, until April 2016. This is a very interesting rumor because it means that Samsung’s devices will be the first ones to demonstrate the true power of the Snapdragon 820. We know that Samsung was the first OEM to test Qualcomm’s latest chipset extensively. It is also rumored that a Galaxy S7 running on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 topped 5423 points on GeekBench which is downright impressive if it’s actually true.

If Samsung actually has Snapdragon 820 exclusivity then the Galaxy S7 will be the first device to feature it in 2016, after which we expect other tech giants like Xiaomi to release their devices with Snapdragon 820. This could be a double-edged sword for consumers because it means 2016 will have a slow start on the mobile business since manufacturers will have to wait until April to release their Snapdragon 820 devices.
