Qualcomm has just announced that it and Google are working together on a new Project Tango handset that will be powered by the Snapdragon 810 chipset. That includes an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU.

The phone is not going to be made available to the public as it will be offered only to developers and device manufacturers. It essentially is Qualcomm's reference phone design with Project Tango capabilities built in.
