Sony’s flagship phone may not make it to MWC 2017 as Samsung is hoarding Snapdragon 835 chips

That’s a blow for an already sinking company as far as smartphones are concerned.

    Rumor has it that Sony may not unveil its next flagship — believed to be the successor of Sony Xperia Z5 Premium at the MWC 2017 as Samsung is hoarding the Snapdragon 835 chipsets for the Galaxy S8. Due to this, Sony may not be able to get Qualcomm chipsets in bulk and hence left out with no other option but to delay the launch.
