The best that smartphones have to offer now will be the Snapdragon 835 and while Qualcomm has not made any announcement about releasing a new chip anytime soon, it looks like they are indeed working on it. In fact, it sounds like they might be working on three.
This rumor started after some people spotting the chips being mentioned in the LinkedIn profiles of a senior staff engineer at Qualcomm. According to the profile, it does look like they are working on three new chips, the 840, 845 and 855.
Using information from a few of the profile, it is believed that the 845 will be what the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be running on and that we will only be seeing the 855 at the end of 2018.
Although we won’t see them in action this year, it is still nice to know that more powerful phones are heading our way next year.
