Silicon giant Qualcomm seems to be working on a new SoC aimed at the mid-premium segment. According to a new report, it looks like the company may soon launch Snapdragon 735 SoC. The information revealed that the unannounced SoC will be based on a 7nm fabrication process. Taking a look at the name, the device will likely be the successor to the Snapdragon 730 and 730G SoC. The company launched the Snapdragon 730 series back in April for mid-range smartphones. For context, the Snapdragon 730 SoC series was based on the 8nm fabrication process. This means that the upcoming SoC will come with a fresh architecture.
