See why Samsung is keen on optimizing Snapdragon 820 for the Galaxy S7
Following the release of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset which was largely plagued by overheating problems, the upcoming Snapdragon 820 chipset is supposedly better. But it seems the Snapdragon 820 although being better couldn’t handle the heat as Samsung was yesterday reported by BusinessKorea as rushing to optimize and fix the overheating problem encountered in the Snapdragon 820 chipset in time for the Galaxy S7 release which is rumoured to be out sometime around January, 2016.
Undoubtedly, getting a fix to the overheating problem would make the expected device cool in more ways than one, seeing as Samsung-Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset arrangement suffered the same problem, it is therefore a puzzling notion to see Samsung yet again going for the Snapdragon 820 more so to the extent of trying hands in resolving the overheating issue.
SamMobile claims the reason for this effort is in two-fold: Having a great Qualcomm chipset means it can just be plugged into the new devices without having to create custom chipsets as featured in Galaxy S6 following reports that the Snapdragon 810 had cooling problems. But it’s reported that Samsung is partly behind the manufacture of the chips too, while Qualcomm possess contracts to create part of the smartphone’s engine orders. Qualcomm has used Samsung’s 14nm FinFET manufacturing process instead of its own, therefore if the Snapdragon 820 chips were to perform excellent, it would not only sell the Galaxy S7 device, it would further boost Samsung’s credibility in the Silicon industry an experience which will most likely be transferred to the upcoming 4nm Exynos chips.
These are still all unverified rumours but the clock is ticking for the Snapdragon 820 chip to be perfected and ready for public scrutiny in time for the production of the Galaxy S7 device.
