Samsung has partnered with Qualcomm to manufacture its latest Snapdragon 835 processor using its 10-nanometer (nm) FinFET process.

The Snapdragon 835 has a 30 percent increase in area efficiency with 27 percent higher performance or up to 40 percent lower power consumption, when compared to the existing Snapdragon 820 chipset. Also, as it has a smaller footprint, OEMs who use the Snapdragon 835 can now have more usable space inside their devices to support bigger batteries or thinner designs.

Supporting Qualcomm's latest generation of fast charging Quick Charge 4, the Snapdragon 835 is expected to extend smartphone usage by at least five hours with just five minutes of charging. It also supports USB Type-C and USB-PD.

Qualcomm expects the Snapdragon 835 to ship in commercial devices in the first half of 2017.
