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.
The 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.
