Recent Leaks Suggest Qualcomm Has A Lock On the Android Smartphone Market In 2018


Considering how popular the Snapdragon 835 has been in the current-generation of Android-based smartphones, it may come as no surprise that Qualcomm is poised for a number of high-profile design wins next year. The most well-known and oft talked about win is the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+, which will probably make an appearance at CES in a couple of weeks before a wider release at Mobile World Congress in February.

But recent leaks suggest Qualcomm has scored design wins with virtually every other major device manufacturer as well. Most of these are rumors are this point, but with the success of the Snapdragon 835 in mind, Qualcomm securing these wins isn’t a stretch by any means. Over the last few days, news has leaked suggesting the upcoming LG G7/7+ and flagship V40 will all be powered by the Snapdragon 845.

HTC will reportedly have the U12 and U12+. And the Google Pixel 3/XL, OnePlus 6, ZTE Nubia Z18, Xiaomi Mi Mix3, and Sony Xperia XZ Pro-A will likely be powered by the 845 as well. Reports also suggest a next-gen OPPO-built device will use the Snapdragon 845, as will the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Motorola reportedly has a couple of devices on tap too, but they may not arrive until 2019.
