A mobile chip faster than the one in flagship smartphones like Samsung s Galaxy S7 and LG s G5 will start appearing in handsets this quarter.

The Snapdragon 821, announced by Qualcomm on Monday, is an incremental upgrade to the Snapdragon 820.

In addition to mobile phones, it s also aimed at tablets, drones, robots and virtual reality headsets.

The Snapdragon 821 is about 10 percent faster than its predecessor.

It is also more power-efficient, meaning batteries in smartphones and phablets will last longer.

Smartphone buyers can look at smartphone specifications to see if a device has a Snapdragon 821 or 820.
