As Snapdragon 830 is 10nm
We are quite surprised that few people concentrated on one of the major downsides of the Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus – its clunky quad core A10 Chip. Far from being cutting edge, Apple is using 16nm and not the 10nm manufacturing process as many expected. Most of its competitors will soon announce their 10nm SoC.
Faster version of 16nm Helio P20
Just as it did with Helio X20, Mediatek is about to release a faster than the base original of the P20 called the P25.
A quad-core chip
While it did not reveal a lot of precise information, we now know that Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will come with a fancy new quad-core A10 Fusion SoC.
2.4 and 5GHz and even 802.11ac
MediaTek has some decent network products and Asus and Xiaomi have a few midrange routers based on its SoC (system on a chip). Now it looks likely that Microsoft’s One S will use two MediaTek SoCs for wireless connectivity.
Attacking the profitable server market
Today, most of the world server and data center market share belongs to Intel, while AMD and the whole ARM server conspiracy, sorry egosystems are making tiny contributions when and if opportunities rise.
Same as S7, S7 Edge
Samsung will launch its Galaxy Note 7 today and it will stream events. The latest info is that the phone comes with Exynos 8890, the similar to what we’ve seen in S7 and S7 Edge but we have heard that there will be a Snapdragon version too.
