Qualcomm Snubs Google Pixel 2 For Samsung Galaxy S5

By  | 

Last year saw the Google Pixel debuting together with Snapdragon 821 and this got many speculating that the next-gen model will feature the newest processor from Qualcomm.

Well, this is not happening as the Pixel 2 is now linked to getting Snapdragon 835, just like most other Android flagship phone from this year. Reports are claiming that the rumored Snapdragon 836 is not even in the works as Qualcomm has got a different plan.

These reports are being backed by industry insiders, XDA and also Evan Blass. While nobody has got a clue on what Qualcomm is up to, many expect the company to bring out a new product early next year.

If this is going to be the case, then it is perhaps right to say that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will debut together with the next-gen SoC from Qualcomm. What do you make of this?
