Samsung is set to mass produce Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 820 processor, which will start arriving in new handsets this year. Samsung says that the Snapdragon 820 will be produced on its new 14nm Low-Power Plus (LPP) process, the second-generation of the company's 14nm FinFET process.
Exact details of the deal were not disclosed, but the new 14nm LPP process is the same that is being used to produce Samsung's own Exynos 8 chips. Samsung says that this new method incorporates a three-dimensional FinFET structure on transistors, allowing for up to a 15 percent performance boost and 15 percent less power consumption over the previous generation.
There are currently no known Windows Phones that slated to run the Snapdragon 820. However, that is likely to change later in 2016 as presumably more devices become available. Maybe even Samsung will return to Windows 10 Mobile?
