Snapdragon 818 processor is fake; Analyst says rumors are false


Just the other day, there were rumors flying around, thanks to a few larger, gullible websites, that Snapdragon had a new processor under wraps. Not only that, but it would be Qualcomm’s first chip to ever have 10-cores, just like MediaTek’s new processor. This is where the alleged Snapdragon 818 comes in.

According to the leak, the Snapdragon 818 would sport four cores clocked at 2.0 GHz, two cores clocked at 1.6 GHz, and four smaller cores clocked at 1.2 GHz. Not only that, but it would feature an Adreno 532. Sounds too good to be true, right? Yes, it is.

Anyways, a Chinese analyst┬ánamed Pan Jiutang,┬áhas come forward and stated that the Snapdragon 818 is just a rumor filled with nonsense specifications. If you are wondering about his track record, he has leaked multiple details about processors, including MediaTek’s latest deca-core beast.

I’m sure eventually Qualcomm will look into developing a deca-core processor, but it definitely isn’t on the horizon anytime soon. They already released their road map for 2015 and they seem pretty set on octa-core chipsets.
