As noted by a report from 9To5Google, both Samsung and Qualcomm have begun with their development of the new Snapdragon 845 chipset.

Reports from Android Headlines seem to suggest that Qualcomm in collaboration with Samsung are already developing their Snapdragon 845 premium segment chipset as early as in 2017 itself.Sources close to the website revealed that TSMC has begun development of the new Snapdragon 845 chips will be built on a 7nm manufacturing process and is already in a testing phase.

The report indicates that prominent manufacturers like Huawei and Nvidia are too keen on implementing their new chips on their hardware lineup as soon as it is available.

The upcoming Snapdragon 845 chipset from Qualcomm will see an enhanced performance in the virtual reality and augmented reality division. Both companies plan to get better battery life and increased performance efficiency from their new processor.  The upgrade process is annual and this might be the first time that the company has already begun with their development of their new chip. Qualcomm recently lost a lawsuit filed by Canadian firm Blackberry for overpaid royalties estimating its worth to be somewhere around $815 million.
