The iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 will be the most important smartphones in the coming year 2016. Although it’s still too early to get excited about these smartphones. The fans are already talking about iPhone 7 vs Galaxy S7 comparison. News is coming about these phones including the future chips powering them.
iPhone 7 vs Galaxy S7
iPhone 7 Processor
TSMC will be the only maker of the A10 next year, a new report from Ctimes says, recommending that the iPhone 6s’s chip gate rumor is the ground why Samsung lost apple’s business for the next generation iPhone. According to the often-accurate KGI securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, TSMC will start producing the A10 chip for iPhone 7 at large scale in next March, with the new iPhone 7 believed to reach the production in the third quarter of 2016.
The new iPhone 7 Processor, A10 chip will be made up on a 16-nanometer process, using TSMC’s state-of-the-art InFO (integrated fan out) architecture. The chip is designed to be more energy-efficient and quicker than the one who precedes you in time. But, above all, new chip technology may allow Apple to move to a system-in-package chip for the new iPhone, alike to the S1 chip inside the Apple Watch. A SiP design would theoretically make it possible for Apple to increase the iPhone’s battery size, add other inner elements, or even trim down the total size of the iPhone. Nothing is confirmed in this respect for the time being.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Processor
Samsung could have lost iPhone 7 chip orders, however, the corporate landed alternative necessary chip orders. Samsung will build the Snapdragon 820 flagship chip for Qualcomm that is expected to power most flagship Android handsets of 2016.
One of those handsets is going to be Samsung Galaxy S7 flagship as Samsung is predicted to use Qualcomm’s best chip next year relying on its own silicon for the Galaxy S6 series.
Exynos 8890 is about to offer tri-band carrier collection (for the first time) and LTE speeds of up to 600Mbps. The chip is going to be made on 14nm technology and should also be quicker and more energy efficient than old Samsung mobile CPUs.
Galaxy S7 buyers from U.S and china will get Snapdragon 820 and others will get Exynos 8890 model.
