Samsung Galaxy S7 Release Date, Specs, Features

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd will use Qualcomm Inc’s Samsung_Galaxy_S7mobile processors for some of its upcoming flagship Galaxy S smartphones, South Korea’s Electronic Times reported citing unnamed industry sources.

Samsung will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chips for Galaxy S7 phones, which is expected to launch early next year and which will be sold in the United States and China. Galaxy S7 phones sold in other markets will be powered by Samsung’s own Exynos processors, the paper said.

A Samsung spokeswoman said the firm does not comment on rumors or speculation. Qualcomm could not be immediately reached for comment.

The South Korean firm used only its Exynos processors for the flagship Galaxy S6 smartphones this year, dealing a major blow to the US chipmaker. But Samsung said earlier this year that it could opt to use Qualcomm chips in the future.

Samsung has previously sourced mobile processors from both Qualcomm and through its own chips division for its premium devices including its Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series.
