Since the advent of the Snapdragon 800 chipset, the SoC series from the California-based mobile chip manufacturer Qualcomm has been in light more compared to the likes of MediaTek, Intel and others. The company already announced the other two chipsets called the Snapdragon 801 and Snapdragon 805 previously. The Snapdragon 801 is already being used by a number of premium smartphone makers like Samsung, Sony, LG and HTC.
Now adding two more new SoCs to its rich line-up, Qualcomm has unveiled Snapdragon 808 and Snapdragon 810. You should know that the latest ones follow 64-bit architecture. The 808 and 810 will be released in a big.LITTLE design, combining Cortex-A53 cores, and the more powerful Cortex-A57s. The A57 cores are up to 50% more powerful than the current-best A15. Since the new 808 and 810 will be built at 20nm, instead of the current 28nm process, they are likely to remain as frugal in terms of power consumption, as are the 801 or 805, for instance.
Now for the juicy part - we'll have new graphics processors in those 64-bit chipsets - Snapdragon 808 will come with Adreno 418, which is 20% faster than Adreno 330, and the Snapdragon 810 will be complimented with Adreno 430, which is 30% faster.
Moreover, the 810 CPU supports 4K Ultra HD interface and video resolution, 4K video encoding at 30 frames per second, as well as 1080p video at 120 frames per second. The dual Image Signal Processors (ISPs) are capable of supporting 1.2 GP/s throughput, and image sensors up to the whopping 55 MP.
The Snapdragon 810 and 808 processors are Qualcomm Technologies' highest performing platform to date, completing Qualcomm Technologies' lineup of 64-bit enabled, LTE-equipped chipsets for premium mobile computing devices. Both the Snapdragon 810 and Snapdragon 808 processors integrate Qualcomm Technologies' 4th Generation Cat 6 LTE Advanced multimode modem together with support for the Qualcomm RF360 Front End Solution, and support 3x20MHz Carrier Aggregation, enabling speeds of up to 300 Mbps in the broadest set of spectrum deployment configurations to date.
With these new hardwares, premium smartphone makers will surely come up with cutting edge phones soon. Stay tuned to GizBot!
