Sony might launch a new smartphone also with its own processor. The new mobile could possibly be a flagship that would be introduced at IFA 2017 in Berlin. It could possibly be the brand new Sony Xperia with a display screen with out bezels that we had already talked about.
Sony would launch its own mobile processor
Almost all producers have already got their own processor. If Sony launches a smartphone with its own processor in September, there might be only a few producers that do not need their own processor. Samsung has already launched the Exynos that are actually built-in into its entry-level, mid-range and high-end smartphones. Back in 2016 we stated that LG might launch a high-end smartphone with its own processor. It would not arrive in 2017 both, nevertheless it appears that in 2018 they may launch a new mobile with an LG processor. Precisely Google would also launch for 2018 a smartphone with a processor designed by themselves. In reality, Google would have employed one of many engineers who was accountable for the design of the iPhone processors. Today we have been speaking about Xiaomi processors, which could possibly be built-in into Nokia mobiles.
And if Sony now also launches a mobile with its own processor, there would be only a few producers that would not have their own processor. Now what does that actually mean for customers?
The processor is the core of each smartphone. In reality, any pc will need to have a processor to be a pc. The stage of this processor is what determines the extent of the pc itself, or the smartphone itself on this case. Therefore, the higher a processor, the higher the mobile.
In the case of Android, many various mobiles, with totally different processors, have the identical working system. Many mobiles also have the identical processor. For instance, many high-end smartphones have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 as a processor.
However, these mobiles that have a processor designed by the smartphone producer itself are usually higher smartphones. This occurs as a result of the producer has taken care of each the processor and the smartphone, so there may be a a lot greater optimization. This leads the Samsung Galaxy S8 with the Exynos 8895 processor to be higher than the Samsung Galaxy S8 with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. It isn’t that the latter isn’t a high quality processor, it’s merely that a high-level processor can by no means be of as a lot high quality as a processor designed for a particular mobile.
The iPhone remains to be at this time a mobile of a related stage to high-end smartphones with Android though it has parts of a decrease stage, and that is exactly due to the optimization that Apple makes when caring for the design of the processor.
Samsung will at all times have a higher flagship if the others do not need their own processor. That is why all producers would launch high-end smartphones with their own processors. A brand new Sony Xperia with its own processor would be launched at IFA 2017.
And what is the way forward for Qualcomm?
Now, what is the long run then of Qualcomm? The firm designs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450. They are high-end processors. But producers need to have their own processors. If everybody had their own processors, what would be the way forward for Qualcomm? While it’s true that we generally converse of Qualcomm because the producer of processors, the reality is that they solely design them. In reality, Samsung was the one who made Qualcomm processors, and now TSMC will make them. These two corporations, Samsung and TSMC will proceed to fabricate the processors, each from Qualcomm, Apple, Samsung, LG, or every other producer. And if so, producers won’t even need to contract Qualcomm to fabricate the processor. If this occurs, Qualcomm might now not be the principle producer of mobile processors.
