Qualcomm has announced its next-generation smartphone processor named "Snapdragon 835". This new chip will be manufactured based on the revolutionary 10nm FinFET process of Samsung Electronics. Snapdragon 835 has Qulcomm's latest Quick Charge 4.0 technology .
These processors are made of nanomaterials—molecules and atoms less than 100 nanometers (nm) in size that exhibit different properties than their larger-particle counterparts: some enhanced nanomaterial characteristics include lighter weight, higher strength, and greater chemical reactivity. Because of these special qualities, nanomaterials have the potential to transform a number of industries from consumer tech to energy and health.
So exactly how small is 10nm? It’s the size of a single water molecule or 1,000 times smaller than a strand of hair. Chips at the 10nm size have a significantly smaller footprint than their 14nm predecessors, which means device manufacturers have more usable space to support larger batteries or slimmer phone designs.
