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 new chipset brings the Adreno 530 GPU with Open GL ES 3.1+, Hexagon 680 DSP, up to 28MP camera support with Qualcomm Spectra Image Sensor Processor (14-bit dual-ISP), 4K Ultra HD capture and playback, X12 LTE modem with Global Mode (max. download speeds up to 600 Mbps and max. upload speeds up to 150 Mbps), Qualcomm VIVE 802.11ac Wi-Fi with 2×2 MU-MIMO and Tri-band support, LPDDR4 1866MHz dual-channel memory support, Quick-Charge 3.0, and Qualcomm Haven Security Suite.
