An anonymous mole provided VideoCardz with the specifications of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, a new chip that will end up in 2017's high-end smartphones.
Snapdragon 835 has four Kryo 280 cores running at up to 2.45GHz with 2MB L2 cache, as well as four more energy-efficient cores running at up to 1.9GHz with 1MB L2 cache. Graphics horsepower is provided by the Adreno 540, which promises up to 20 percent better performance than the Adreno 530.
The SoC is made on a 10nm process and should have 50 percent lower power consumption than the Snapdragon 801 from three generations before. The slides don't offer specifics on how much less power the Snapdragon 835 consumes versus the Snapdragon 820, but the second slide does offer a visual presentation of how much smaller the Snapdragon 835 is versus its predecessor.
Additionally, the leak reveals the chip will have the Snapdragon X16 LTE Gigabit-class LTE modem. Here are the first two slides, there are more at the source.
As reported a couple of weeks ago, what makes the Snapdragon 835 very interesting is that it's the first ARM-based SoC that will be capable of running traditional, x86-based Windows 10 programs. This is done via emulation and if the Microsoft demo can be trusted in terms of performance and compatibility this could be very big.
