Inc.
Samsung have already announced they are they will mass produce the latest 10nm FinFET technology, which is up to 27% higher performance or up to 40% lower power consumption compared to their previous 14nm . Another benefit of using the Snapdragon 835 processor is that it will physically be a smaller processor and therefore will allow hardware manufacturers to cram even more tech into their devices.
The Snapdragon 835 processor is currently in production now and expected to ship in commercial devices in the first half of 2017.
