Qualcomm has announced their new mobile processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, this is the processor that will be powering the majority of next years flagship smartphones like the HTC One M10 and the Samsung Galaxy S7.
The Snapdragon 820 will bring improved performance and graphics, faster download speeds over LTE and also lower power usage than the Snapdragon 810.
The Snapdragon 820 system-on-chip (SoC) represents a rare event in the engineering and design of semiconductors. Every major IP block in the system is a newly optimized custom design. The opportunity to take a fresh look at a processor to this magnitude is infrequent, as each IP block typically has its own update schedule.
But in the case of the Snapdragon 820, every major component of the system has been significantly improved in terms of performance and power consumption to help deliver the kinds of always-on, performance-demanding experiences that users want.
