On stage at an event in Hawaii, Qualcomm just surprised nobody by taking the wraps off its Next Big Thing. Snapdragon 845 is the latest model in Qualcomm's long line of Snapdragon system-on-chips, and it's a lock to be the engine powering all of 2018's Android flagships.
The Snapdragon 845 is (wait for it!) a direct successor to the Snapdragon 835, which can be found lingering inside devices like the Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 8, Pixel 2, and Moto Z2 Force. As we've come to expect, it will bring improvements in power, efficiency, and niche areas like image processing to next year's best smartphones.
