Qualcomm officially introduces the Snapdragon 820 SoC with custom 64-bit Kryo cores

Snapdragon

After months of teasing, Qualcomm today finally made the Snapdragon 820 chipset official.

Qualcomm’s latest flagship SoC, the Snapdragon 820 utilizes custom 64-bit Kryo cores instead of plain vanilla ARM cores used on the Snapdragon 810 this year. Another key difference is that the Snapdragon 820 will be a quad-core SoC and not octa-core as the Snapdragon 810. The four Kryo cores will be clocked at 2.2 GHz.

The chipset will be manufactured by Samsung on its 14nm FinFET node. First devices powered by the chip are expected to arrive by Q1 next year.
