Mobile World Congress (MWC) is just over a month away and we could not be more anxious. At this Mobile show, handsets like the LG G6 or Huawei P10 will finally be featured. There are others who, however, like the Galaxy S8, according to the latest rumors, will not be present at MWC.

However, this does not seem to be a relief for a company like LG, for example, but a concern. Well, it seems that the LG G6 should come equipped with the latest technology inside but that should not be possible at all. At least in part. Because? Due to Samsung and Qualcomm.
The two companies worked together to develop Qualcomm's latest processor, the Snapdragon 835. However, this processor will be saved for the Samsung Galaxy S8 – which will only be presented and marketed in April.
This reservation, made by Samsung, prevents Qualcomm – due to lack of management – from making available to other companies the possibility of including the 835 in their smartphones. This has happened to HTC on its U Ultra and theoretically will also happen to the LG G6. So, just like HTC's smartphone (presented this month), the Korean company's handset will only feature the Snapdragon 821.
Undoubtedly, even knowing that the 821 is a great processor – as you can see from its performance on Google Pixel – the 835 is the new face of Qualcomm. It has the 2017 stamp. It is not easy for any consumer or technology enthusiast to think that the smartphone they will want to buy this year does not have the latest processor available on the market.
So all that remains is to remember that while all of this becomes effectively real, the LG G6 has everything to be a real success throughout the year. Undoubtedly, if LG does everything else as it has to be done, then no one will worry if your new flagship will have the latest processor or not.
