As far as specs go you can expect the iPhone 8 to see a new A11 processor and M11 motion-coprocessor. But until those actually ship, there’s no way to tell how they compare against the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Samsung Exynos 8895 processor found in the Galaxy S8.
Apple’s silicon is always impressive. The past two generations of Apple’s A-Series chipsets have been remarkable pieces of technology, improving performance, power consumption and graphical prowess dramatically each and every year.
With the advent of higher resolution displays, more display real-estate and the very real possibility of a Pro model iPhone, this year’s A11 CPU could well be the most potent we’ve seen released in a good long while.
TSMC is reportedly making Apple’s 10-nanometer chipset with production reportedly starting as early as Q2 2017.
The transition to 10 nanometers should enable Apple to pack a lot more features and functionality into a given area than it could with the 16-nanometer technology that the A10 Fusion chip is built on,” notes .
“TSMC previously said that its 10-nanometer technology will see a ’20% speed gain and 40% power reduction’ relative to its 16-nanometer technology.”
