Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 will ‘come into focus’ at CES 2017
Qualcomm looks like it will reveal more info on its upcoming Snapdragon 835 processor next week at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. A newly posted teaser claims that the 835 will “come into focus” at the event.

The company previously revealed that the Snapdragon 835 would be made with Samsung’s 10-nanometer FinFET process. It will also support the company’s Quick Charge 4 technology, which is designed to charge the battery of a smartphone with five hours of life with just five minutes of charging time.
So far, Qualcomm has not revealed much in the way of hardware specifics for the Snapdragon 835, such as clock speed and graphics performance. A recent benchmarking result on the GFXBench site for an alleged 835 development board claims the chip has an octa-core design with a clock speed of 2.2GHz and that its Adreno 540 GPU is 30 percent faster than the current Adreno 530 chip. However, online benchmarking results can be faked, and a development board’s results might also differ from the final product.
Unconfirmed rumors claim the first phone with the 835 will be none other than the Samsung Galaxy S8, which may be revealed sometime in April.
