Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 615 chipset back in February this year. And it seems like the first device packing this SoC will be arriving from HTC’s sheds if a new teaser posted on Weibo is anything to go by. The teaser indicates that the HTC Desire 820 will be packing this 64-bit octa-core chipset, making it the first Android smartphone to have the privilege. There will also be an Ultrapixel camera on board according to the teaser, so the device appears to be well equipped in terms of hardware.
Given that the handset will be the first to feature this SoC, it’s quite clear that HTC will claim bragging rights when it lands in the markets. The smartphone is expected to be announced at the company’s IFA event on September 4, so we don’t have to wait too long now.
HTC launched the Desire 816 not too long ago, so this would act as a successor to the device going by the naming. There are no details on other hardware aspects of the smartphone, but it could end up being a phablet as the Desire 816 sports a 5.5 inch display.
