It was in the eyes of Snapdragon 835, the candidate to become the most popular and first 10nm chipset of the year. Due to productivity issues, the chipset’s output has stalled until April.The Snapdragon 835, which Qualcomm calls the most powerful chipset on its history, is not currently on the market. While many claims leave a question mark in their heads, the delayed ones are proof of these claims.
Earlier in the year, the LeMax Pro and the Snapdragon 820 chipset were on the scene. Even in December 2015, the chip set was introduced and the CES 2016 exhibition was not expected. This year, the flagship models are still not around and it is not known when they will come.
Normally LeEco, Oppo and Vivo were expected to make a move at the CES 2017 fair, but this did not happen. In the coming period, no publicity is expected. At the MWC 2017 exhibition, it is stated that anticipations may be wasted. The problem is bigger than predicted.
According to Forbes, the Snapdragon 835 chipset is suffering inventory problems because of the weight of the Galaxy S8. At the earliest April, the widespread sale of the chipset will begin. We’ll see the Snapdragon 821 chipset on the phones that hit the mark. Or the producers will enter the risk and leave the models after April.
That means the LG G6 will come with the Snapdragon 821 chipset. It is even said that HTC is delaying the new flagship model and introducing the U Ultra model instead.Why is there a stock problem in the Snapdragon 835 chipset built on the same base in the absence of such an annoyance last year? The answer is probably in production. Even though it is not officially mentioned, both Samsung and TSMC are on the agenda of productivity problems in 10nm process. From this point of view, it was predicted that the stockpile of the year would end. It is also said that Samsung has released Galaxy S8 launch a little more, because it knows it.
