If this leaked press release is genuine, that means the rumors we've been hearing for weeks are true. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 is actually capable of running full Windows 10, not Windows 10 mobile or RT, the real deal.
As we embark on a new era of intelligent, connected experiences, our mobile devices are going to need a new, one-of-a-kind processor that’s smaller, faster, and more energy-efficient than any chipset in history. Meet the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. Our newest mobile processor is designed to meet every one of these rigorous requirements while setting new standards in mobile performance. Using a new 10nm design with more than three billion ultra-efficient transistors, Snapdragon 835 is 30 percent smaller than Snapdragon 820. This pivotal size reduction and efficiency boost allow OEMs to manufacture thinner phones with larger batteries that run on less power and last longer. All told, Snapdragon 835 uses 40 percent less power than the previous generation and provides up to a 27 percent performance increase.
