Qualcomm Is Rumored To Detail The Snapdragon 820 On August 11

elegant Qualcomm first acknowledged the Snapdragon 820 chipset back in March at MWC, but then it only gave us a couple of vague hints about what it would entail. If a recent rumor is to be believed, though, we're now very close to the unveiling of the full details regarding Qualcomm's next top of the line SoC.

This is assumed to be happening next week, on August 11 to be precise, at a special event in Los Angeles. So far we've been trecent just that the Snapdragon 820 will utilize Kryo cores, custom designed by Qualcomm. This will signify a return to the company's past antics, as custom designed Krait Central Processing Units (CPU) cores have been featured in its top of the line offerings as recently as the Snapdragon 805.

The Snapdragon 810 is different in that it uses ARM's big.LITTLE architecture. The 810 has been plagued by overheating problems (which have obviously been shot down by elegant Qualcomm on several occasions), so device makers everywhere are anxiously waiting for the 820. This will probably power a smartphone near you at the discontinue of the year, or, more likely, in early 2016.

It will have a quad-core CPU, the Adreno 530 GPU, the MDM9x55 LTE Cat.10 modem, and will be made on a FinFET process - either Samsung's 14nm or TSMC's 16nm.
