Early Samsung Galaxy Note 5, ‘Project Zen’ details emerge

Now that everybody’s quite happy with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge (even Samsung is quite happy with themselves for the current flagship’s sales), we can start moving on to what Samsung might have in store for us toward the end of the year. We’re possibly looking at early details to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and a possible successor to the Galaxy Note Edge mysteriously coded as “Project Zen” at the moment.

Qualcomm exec (finally) denies rumors of defective Snapdragon 810

It took them a few months to finally address the rumors, but Qualcomm is vehement in their denial that there's anything wrong with their Snapdragon 810 chip, which caused Samsung to use their own processor in their latest flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Despite other OEMs still opting to use the aforementioned chip, the damage to the reputation of the chipmaker has already been done, and it probably didn't help that they stayed mum about it and are now just talking months later.

Qualcomm to help market Chinese smartphones globally

Because of the changes in the relationship of Samsung and Qualcomm, the latter is determined to make it bigger in the industry by helping to market other smartphones especially those made in China. As you all know, Samsung has ditched the overheating Snapdragon 810 by the chip maker and didn't use it on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. The South Korean tech giant used its own Exynos chip instead and the result was a super fast performance and a big loss for Qualcomm.

Qualcomm to build its next-gen chips on Samsung foundries

Make no mistake about it, this is a big deal for everyone following tech news.

Qualcomm launches Trepn Profiler app for Android

Qualcomm has always been known for its powerful processors. Even if Samsung has changed its decision and now uses its own chipset for the latest flagship phones, Qualcomm still continues to develop reliable mobile solutions. The company’s development team just released the Trepn Profiler app for Android. The app basically profiles devices that are currently powered by Snapdragon processors.

Samsung Galaxy S6 a bigger loss for Qualcomm than expected

It was in January this year when Qualcomm divulged that a major manufacturer had backed out of using their new Snapdragon 810 processors/chipsets, something that would negatively impact their bottom line for the quarter, if not the year. They did not name the company, but Samsung had made an announcement that they would be using their own Exynos processors for this year’s flagship, the Galaxy S6. It’s not that difficult to put two and two together.

Qualcomm brings fingerprint sensor, teases next gen Snapdragon

At the Mobile World Congress 2015, Qualcomm has brought a few announcements and a few teases as well as to what to expect from the tech company in the next few months.

They also gave a preview of the next Snapdragon, which will be coming to a smartphone near you by 2016.

Qualcomm announces four new mid-tier Snapdragon chipsets

Until recently, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 and 400 tiers were marked with significant performance downgrades coming from the standard Snapdragon 800 series.
