Qualcomm Intros Snapdragon 810, 808 Chipsets, Available Early 2015
Qualcomm today announced the next in its Snapdragon lineage of chipsets, the 810 and 808. The new 64-bit LTE chipsets will begin sampling this quarter and are expected to see commercial release in early 2015.
Both the 810 and 808 are Cat 6 LTE and support carrier aggregation up to 60 MHz (3 x 20 MHz), with Qualcomm promising speeds of up to 300 Mbps.
The 810 boasts a “native 4K Ultra HD interface” and an upgraded camera suite using gyro-stabilization and 3D noise reduction, swearing it can rattle off 4K video at 30 frames per second and 1080p video at 120 frames per second. Its combined 14-bit dual Image Signal Processors (ISPs) can support 1.2GP/s throughput and image sensors up to 55MP.
The 810 also houses combined quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 CPUs and Cortex-A53 CPUs, LPDDR4 memory, HDMI1.4 support, and 2-stream 802.11ac with multi-user MIMO.
The 808 packs in an Adreno 418 GPU with support for OpenGL ES 3.1, two ARM Cortex-A57 cores paired with a quad Cortex-A53 CPU, LPDDR3 memory, and HDMI1.4 support.
