Samsung’s new Galaxy S8 could feature a super-fast processor

Samsung could do with some positive news after the disaster of the exploding Note 7s took the shine off what was heading for a great year for the firm.

The Galaxy S7 edge is the best phone of the year and the Note 7 was also expected to win a host of awards before it was pulled from sale.

Not only is the S8 expected to feature a bigger screen, improved camera and curved display but it could also be the fastest Android phone ever made.

Samsung has just confirmed that it is helping out with the latest top mobile processor from Qualcomm.

Qualcomm are one of the world’s biggest suppliers of chips and you’ll find their brains in almost every Android phone on the market.

The next-generation chip will be called the Snapdragon 835 and it will be the most powerful Qualcomm has ever created.

Not only will the 835 be super speedy but it will also be more efficient meaning it should help performance and battery life.

More details about this chip will be revealed at CES 2017 in January but one crucial thing has been revealed this week.

This slim build is incredibly important when designing next-generation smartphones, as it means companies can plan thinner devices, allowing for bigger batteries and more hardware features.

The first devices to feature the Snapdragon 835 should appear in the first quarter of 2017, meaning that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a prime candidate.

Rumours are continuing to build around Samsung’s next flagship smartphone, which could also feature a completely new design.

Reports have claimed that Samsung is set to reveal two new devices, with the standard Samsung Galaxy S8 coming with a 5.7 inch screen, a significant upgrade on the current flagship device, the 5.1 inch Galaxy S7.

There will also be a larger device, the Galaxy S8 plus, which may be the company’s biggest device to date, reportedly sporting a 6.2 inch nearly edge-to-edge display.

However Samsung fans may have slightly longer to wait for their next upgrade.

The company normally reveals its new flagship at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona, most recently the Galaxy S7 back in March.

However sources now claim that Samsung is now taking extra care to avoid a repeat of the fiasco surrounding the Galaxy Note 7 launch.
