Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 to reportedly use Samsung’s 10nm process

With the Snapdragon 820 set to reach the mass market later this year, speculation has already surfaced regarding the development of the chip’s sequel, the Snapdragon 830, which is rumored to touch down in the first quarter of 2017. A tipster revealed that the chip goes by the internal codename MSM8998, supports up to 8GB of RAM and claimed that it will feature an improved Kryo architecture, to be constructed using Samsung’s 10nm manufacturing process.

Unfortunately, we can’t confirm the authenticity of this report. We do believe that the Snapdragon 830 is on its way, and it does make perfect sense for it to support such a large amount of RAM. However, we find it extremely difficult to come to terms with the chip’s purported 10nm process as developers are still working on streamlining the 14nm procedure.

More importantly, Samsung hasn’t even taken the wraps off its 10nm development, which we first caught wind of six months ago by way of a roadmap – so we imagine that it’s far from being ready with such little R&D time.
