Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 rumors soon to create high end devices
Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 rumors suggest 8GB RAM coming with SD30.The smartphone industry is indeed a fast moving one. Even before devices running under the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset hit the market, there are already talks about the possible new iteration of the Snapdragon processor. Pertained to as the Snapdragon 830, people in the industry are saying that the chipset is expected to bring about an innovation in the memory capacity of smartphones and other mobile devices. The Snapdragon 820 is yet to appear in an actual device, but it seems the industry is really wasting no time, with focus already shifting towards its alleged successor. Of course, at this point in time it is far too early to have any actual information on the chip, but various sources have already been tossing around some pretty ambitious speculations.
This theory comes from Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang, who also reassures us that Qualcomm’s next beastly chip will be have a model designation “MSM8998”. Still, it is a pretty nice opportunity to strike up a debate on whether or not such power would be useful or practical inside a handset. We see little logic behind essentially closing the hardware gap between personal computers and smartphones, as long as the current usage scenarios are in place, but is the status quo quickly headed for a change? Could projects like Microsoft’s Continuum be a valid path to a new personal computing revolution? What is your take on the matter? Also, while we are still deep inside the rumor mill, it is worth noting that the alleged Snapdragon 830 has also been involved in another recent speculation, hinting at a new 10nm production process for the chip. Other than its supposed model number and name, Pan Jiutang also said that the Snapdragon 830 may very well open up the doors for mobile devices to finally carry with them the beastly amount of 8GB RAM. Currently, the 4GB RAM size is perceived as the highest, most common capacity of a memory for a mobile device.
