Smartphone application processor shipments will continue to fall globally this year, according to a recent DigiTimes Research.
The first Android smartphones powered by Qualcomm's hot new Snapdragon 710 processor will apparently be released by the end of the quarter, possibly supporting various "premium" technologies at an affordable price point.
MediaTek's Helio P22 is by far the world's humblest 12nm-based processor, potentially opening the door for some crazy affordable smartphones with stellar battery life.
Samsung's in-house Exynos processors, currently powering exclusively Galaxy devices and a few Meizu phones, may soon expand to handsets made by more companies, including ZTE.
Samsung, the makers of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845, 835, 821 and 820 processors, could lose the Snapdragon 855 production contract to bitter rivals TSMC.
It has a dedicated security processing unit, more artificial intelligence branches to camera and mixed reality processing and the beefiest cores yet.
LG has been coming to Intel every so often in an attempt to skirt Qualcomm's bloated presence for some silicon. It could be realized soon.
Leaks and rumors have pinned the Pixel 2 (and, to a lesser extent, the Pixel XL 2) to feature a Snapdragon 835. Qualcomm is said to have no 836 plans.
The biggest improvement to this chipset series could bring it the closest to par to the big flagship SoCs early next year.
The company uses a proprietary CPU core design to help it reach competition-smashing speeds. It's now catching up with a dedicated AI sub-chip.
The Helio P10 started things off as a fairly popular mid-range chip for OEMs. The Helio P20 was slow to pick up. So, how are the P30 and P23 going to do?
One of the reasons Apple needed so much time to launch the long-rumored 10.5-inch iPad Pro is likely this super-small TSMC-made A10X SoC.
The world's top manufacturer of smartphone displays is sure not resting on its laurels, spending fortunes on OLED and chip-making factories.
The A10X Fusion chipset inside the new iPad Pro models cooks. It destroys the A9X on single-core and multi-core Geekbench tests.
Google has been planning on making its own chipsets for a long time. It's now making the necessary hires from all points, including Apple, to do so.
The story about the G6 getting the Snapdragon 821 instead of the Snapdragon 835 may be a little more complicated than we have first thought.
The cores responsible for that Snapdragon or Helio chip that's responsible for running your phone are getting a big replacement run.
Silicon may be a boring topic for consumers, but smaller and more efficient chip processes mean that device OEMs can fit more into phones.
As Google Assistant looks to expand its integration into other home appliances beyond the company's own, MediaTek is making a play with a new chip.
The two chipmakers have reinforced allegations that their market-leading rival has disengaged with the competition and left device-makers stranded.
The processor inside the next iPhone is getting made right now. Also being made are processors for some Android phones, too.
Walleye, Muskie and Taimen are supposed the names of the next-generation Google Pixel phones that will be getting the Snapdragon 835.
Rumors have been rounding the forest for a long time about Xiaomi's in-house processor and it seems that we're getting within weeks of a "Pinecone" phone.
