Samsung Galaxy S7 to Reunite Flagship Series with Qualcomm

October 7, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The in-house Exynos chipset was something that rocked the smartphone capabilities in Samsung Flagship smartphone, Galaxy S6.

With combined octa-core powers, Exynos 7420 was rated the fastest smartphone chipset on this planet by both geeks and the benchmarks.

With that said, we definitely expected that Samsung would stick with the same chipset technology for its next flagship, the Galaxy S7.

However, reports say they indeed will have Exynos onboard, but not for its entire range of S7 devices.

The upcoming Galaxy S7 smartphone, which is expected to get launched during the early months of 2016, is now reported to make way for the return of its premium flagship series to Qualcomm platform, even if not for all.

It is reported that the US and China editions of the S7 smartphone will feature Qualcomm chipset instead of Exynos. But it won’t be disappointing; these editions will pack the latest from Qualcomm family, the Snapdragon 820, which is also touted as the fastest from Qualcomm.

The remaining markets, which include Europe and Asia, will be provided with Exynos-powered Galaxy S7.

We are not sure of the reason for this restricted diversion, but Samsung had already explained earlier that they will revert to the Qualcomm chipset with some of their premium flagships in future.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 is still to be unveiled completely, and is believed to curb down all the issues, including the heating concerns, that were present in its Snapdragon 810 chipset.

The chipset is expected to make its debut with Xiaomi’s Mi5 smartphone in November. We will have to wait to see if it can slash the benchmark counts of Exynos.
