Everyone is waiting for Qualcomm’s next flagship processor, the Snapdragon 835, as it’ll be an important component for high-end phones in 2017.
Who will use it first? Probably ASUS.
Rather than being highly ambiguous surrounding the possible launch, ASUS is indirectly telling the world that, yes, they’re definitely releasing a Snapdragon 835-powered phone. ASUS used a single tweet to reveal what’s on the way.
This is the tweet sent out by the company:
— ASUS (@ASUS) January 2, 2017
Let’s go down the list of why we’re likely going to see ASUS use the Snapdragon 835 first. It’s an ASUS box with a Snapdragon-labeled chip inside, ASUS openly says the “world’s best processor” in the tweet, and ASUS has been an early adopter of Qualcomm processors in the past. Easily, all signs point to the next ZenFone being paired with Qualcomm’s next flagship processor.
