Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is now more or less extinct. With the embarrassment and the image damage the device caused to the brand ‘Samsung’, the company probably doesn’t want to talk about the Note 7 fiasco ever again. The exploding Note 7 devices have been banned on airlines and users have been asked to get their devices replaced. Samsung has buried Galaxy Note 7 for good, although refurbished Galaxy Note 7 are expected to be available soon worldwide. Samsung is expected to launch the refurbished version of the exploding Note 7 after Galaxy S8 release. And now, reports are surfacing about the processor in Galaxy Note 8, which is expected to be launched later this year.
Galaxy Note 8 could come with Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon 836
It was earlier expected that Galaxy Note 8 would feature either Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 equivalent or Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 835. But recent reports hint at something totally different – Galaxy Note 8 could come with Snapdragon 836 chipset. This could give the Samsung Note flagship a performance boost. With Galaxy Note 7 fiasco still fresh in memories, Samsung is probably looking at launching a high-end performance-centric Note device very soon.
Snapdragon 836 is expected to push the limits of performance – with more powerful cores clocking at 2.5GHz and GPU clocking at 740MHz. Based on the new and improved 10nm FinFET LPP architecture, the Snapdragon 836 chipsets are expected to give the Note 8 the much-needed performance boost and speed enhancements.
Snapdragon 836, the successor to Snapdragon 835, is expected to launch very soon. However, apart from minor enhancements over and above the existing Snapdragon 835, it looks like no significant upgrades can be expected in Snapdragon 836. Considering that Qualcomm is expected to launch the Snapdragon 845 SoC in January 2018, most of the improvements are expected to be part of Qualcomm’s next advanced 845 chipset.
