by Reads (1,011)

Qualcomm is throwing down the gauntlet with its next generation of Snapdragon 800 series SoC’s, advanced 64-bit processors that will power future cutting-edge tablets and phones.

Qualcomm SnapdragonThe Snapdragon 808 and 810 are designed to deliver Qualcomm’s highest performance to date in video, imaging, and graphics technology, and boast impressive technology. Both 64-bit processors will integrate Qualcomm’s 4th-generation Cat 6 LTE Advanced modem, enabling wireless speeds of up to 300 Mbps.

In addition to the impressive speeds of quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 CPUs and Cortex-A53 CPUs, the Snapdragon 810 will also support native 4K Ultra HD video and an upgraded camera suite including up to 1.2 GP/s throughput and image sensors up to 55MP. Built with LPDDR4 memory, external 4K support via HDMI 1.4, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.1, and more, this is a cutting-edge SoC that is going to make serious waves in the mobile hardware market.

The Snapdragon 808 will sport two ARM Cortex-A57 cores paired with a quad Cortex-A53 CPU with LPDDR3 memory. It’s being designed for devices with WQXGA (2560×1600) displays.

Since there is still currently no announced 64-bit version of the Android operating system, this is future-facing technology in a big way, but that future is looking bright.

More information is expected on the Snapdragon 800 series later this year.
