This is exactly how fast the Galaxy S8 will be compared to the Galaxy S7

Galaxy S8 vs. Galaxy S7 Speed

The Galaxy S8 will be faster than Samsung’s 2017 flagships, that’s practically a given. But thanks to CES 2017, we now have a pretty good idea of exactly what that means. Qualcomm on Tuesday took the wraps off its latest mobile processor innovation, the Snapdragon 835 that will be found inside many 2017 flagship devices, including the US version of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 phones. And Qualcomm basically confirmed that everything we learned from those leaked presentation slides was accurate.

Qualcomm teases a new OnePlus device sporting a Snapdragon 821

OnePlus 3 There’s still a little time to get a handset out before year’s end. And while increased competition from a number of relative new manufacturers (not to mention Google) have seemingly made things a bit more crowded, Samsung’s recent struggles have, perhaps, left an opening for another flagship. At just under three years old, OnePlus certainly still qualifies as a newcomer, but… Read More

OnePlus is officially releasing an even faster smartphone

OnePlus 3T Release Date
When the OnePlus 3 launched earlier this year, it was one of the very fastest phones on the market. But since launch, new processors have come out and a new iPhone has launched, leaving OnePlus struggling to keep its crown as the fastest handset in town. That could all be about to change. We've already heard rumors that OnePlus is going to launch a spec-bumped version, the OnePlus 3T, with a faster processor. Qualcomm seems to have just confirmed that, tweeting that "something new" is on the way from OnePlus, and it will have Qualcomm's best Snapdragon 821 processor inside.

There’s two types of iPhone 7 Plus, and one is much faster than the other

iPhone 7 Plus Cell Speed
For the first time this year, Apple went with two different providers of cellular modems in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Some phones have Qualcomm modems, the company Apple has worked with for years. The others had Intel modems, marking a real breakthrough for Intel, which has been trying to get its chips into flagship smartphones for years. Unfortunately, testing is showing that there's a big difference between the two modems. Although both will work just fine when there's a good LTE signal, it seems that if you've got an Intel modem, your data speed in areas with less-than-ideal coverage may be much slower.

Qualcomm CEO hints Apple will switch to Intel for iPhone 7’s LTE chip

Bloomberg reports that Qualcomm shares have dropped after the company’s CEO hinted that its biggest customer could switch to a rival supplier for future orders. Reading between the lines, the speculation is that its biggest customer is Apple (Samsung is the only other company close to holding that title) and that a switch to Qualcomm’s rival means Apple’s is considering Intel for LTE modem chips in the iPhone 7:
