    Further, going by the earlier reports, it seems that Qualcomm along with Samsung is collaborating to develop the new chipset.

    Considering Samsung's history of launching new devices it should hit the market next year.

    In any case, while we are still analyzing and trying to figure out what is the exact thing, new rumors have just popped up online. The rumors suggest that the specific SoC will be built on the next-gen 7nm process which will be developed by TSMC. Further various reports state that the Taiwanese company has already begun trial production of the first test chipsets. However, full production is expected to commence next year.

    Additionally, Gizchina reports that TSMC's new 7nm process will help offer increased performance by 25-35 percent over the 10nm process, further allowing for almost 95 percent of all 10nm chips to fit in a 7nm chipset. And more importantly, this could result in much thinner smartphones, larger batteries and even better performance in the newer smartphones when fitted with the Snapdragon 845 chip.
