Microsoft may have snuck in a new chipset that will be used in future Windows 10 Mobile devices. The company's hardware requirements support page has added the Qualcomm MSM8998 chipset, which is rumored to be the upcoming Snapdragon 830 processor.
The support page (via NPU) does confirm the Qualcomm MSM8998 listing. A Chinese analyst stated a few months ago that was the code number for the Snapdragon 830, which he also claimed would support up to 8GB of RAM and would be made based on a 10nm architecture.
It's important to note that while Microsoft's support page does indeed list the Qualcomm MSM8998 chipset, the company has not yet confirmed that it is indeed the Snapdragon 830, so take any reports based on that note with a grain of salt.
