Qualcomm has announced its next- generation mobile processors for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 tier, the Snapdragon 810 and 808 processors. 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.  

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 processors are designed in 20nm technology node with Cat 6 LTE, advanced multimedia features and 64-bit capability.

The Snapdragon 810 processor also supports rich native 4K Ultra HD interface and video, along with an upgraded camera suite using gyro-stabilization and 3D noise reduction for producing high quality 4K video at 30 frames per second and 1080p video at 120 frames per second.  The combined 14-bit dual Image Signal Processors (ISPs) are capable of supporting 1.2GP/s throughput and image sensors up to 55MP.  Advanced imaging software helps enable advanced mobile camera features, including enhanced exposure, white balance and fast low light focus. The combined 64-bit quad core ARM Cortex-A57 CPUs and Cortex-A53 CPUs are designed to enable an improved user experience based on the advanced technology feature set, while implementation of the new ARMv8-A ISA enables improved instruction set efficiency. The Snapdragon 810 processor introduces high speed LPDDR4 memory.

In addition, it implements Qualcomm® VIVE™ 2-stream 802.11ac with multi-user MIMO, which makes Wi-Fi® networks more efficient in order to maximize the performance of local connectivity for mobile devices.

The Snapdragon 808 processor integrates the same LTE-Advanced, RF360 and Wi-Fi connectivity as the Snapdragon 810 processor and includes 2K display support.  Both chipsets are fully software compatible with the 64-bit ARMv8-A instruction set. T

Snapdragon 808 processor is designed for WQXGA (2560x1600) displays. The new Adreno 418 GPU provides support for OpenGL ES 3.1 plus hardware tessellation, geometry shaders, programmable blending.  It is designed to support up to 20% faster graphics performance than its predecessor, the Adreno 330 GPU.  It is configured with two ARM Cortex-A57 cores paired with a quad Cortex-A53 CPU and has 12-bit dual Image Signal Processors and LPDDR3 memory.

The Snapdragon 810 and 808 processors are anticipated to begin sampling in the second half of 2014 and expected to be available in commercial devices by the first half of 2015.
