Both the LG G6 and Snapdragon 835 are fairly new flagship offerings from LG and Qualcomm, respectively, but that reportedly hasn’t stopped those two companies from starting to collaborate on next year’s flagships.
LG and Qualcomm are said to be working together on a new flagship Snapdragon 845 processor for the LG G7. That’s according to a report from Aju Business Daily, via The Investor. The Snapdragon 845 will reportedly be 30 percent more powerful than the Snapdragon 835.
The LG G6 missed out on the Snapdragon 835 this year, reportedly because Samsung claimed the first batch of Snapdragon 835 processors for its Galaxy S8. While the SD821 is still a nice chipset, having the latest and greatest specs can be important for some consumers, and so it’s possible that LG realizes this and is taking steps to ensure that the LG G7 won’t miss out on Qualcomm’s new flagship processor for 2017.
