The new LG G6 will not include the Snapdragon 835 processor. And as surely as you know, this new processor is developed in conjunction by Qualcomm and Samsung. For this reason, it seems that Samsung would have decided to have some exclusivity during the first few months.
Yesterday we informed you about one of the news of the day: Samsung Galaxy S8 will not be in MWC 2017, and we will have to wait a few more weeks until we can meet the new South Korean flagship.
Thanks to this absence, LG has a golden opportunity to take advantage of the Mobile World Congress with its LG G6 – whose final design we could see just a few hours ago – and position itself on top of the android landscape, at least until its more direct rivals Be announced to the world.
But it seems that Samsung, not yet participating in the event with its Galaxy S8, will not cease in its eagerness to water the party of LG, preventing them from including the brand new processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in its new flagship.
According to Forbes, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 will not begin to be available in large quantities until the Galaxy S8 is unveiled.
That is why, according to the latest rumors, the LG G6 will include in its interior a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, presented during the past year 2016 as a slight renewal of the 820.
Even without testing the new creation of Qualcomm and Samsung, it would not be unreasonable to claim that the Snapdragon 835 is considerably higher than the 821. However, LG does not seem to care too much about the choice of the processor. We already showed it including the Snapdragon 808 in the LG G4 instead of the 810, and the truth is the difference was not too noticeable.
Be that as it may, if LG intends to re-enter fully into the fight with the big, this choice could hurt the firm in the face of competing with other rivals. Maybe presenting the G6 ahead of time was not a good idea after all.
