Canada gets the Snapdragon 820 processor inside the Galaxy Note 7

Samsung released the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge to Canada with an Exynos 8890 processor but it has shuffled things around for its latest handset. It appears that the Galaxy Note 7 that Samsung is going to release in Canada is actually powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor. It was initially believed that Canada would get the Exynos 8890-powered models as the Qualcomm processor has almost always been exclusive to models meant for the United States but that has changed this time around.

It made sense to keep this division as Snapdragon processors have support for CDMA which is still alive and well in the US through several carriers while most subscribers in Canada have shifted to GSM networks. It appears that to simplify the logistics involved in shipping millions of handsets, Samsung has decided to offer one model across all of North America which features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor.
