Looks like Qualcomm’s 835 has finally hit the market via Samsung,
The Galaxy S8 is by
far Samsung’s best phone yet, and it probably the best new Android smartphone
you can buy right now.
This is total speculation on part but even though Qualcomm
started using the CryptoManger core in the 820 for themselves internally (i.e. feature configuration, inventory control etc.,) perhaps the 835
is the first Qualcomm chip that will offer the CryptoManager core to third party developers.
My speculation is based on Qualcomm’s efforts to market their new device attestation feature.
Here is a Qualcomm press release highlighting Samsung’s use
of the 835 in the Galaxy S8. Note the comments about device attestation.
The Snapdragon 835 also features the Qualcomm
Haven™ security platform with enhanced security for biometrics and device attestation, which can be
experienced in the Galaxy S8.
