The #Qualcomm #Snapdragon820 SoC isn’t expected to be available until 2016 at least. Given that we’re yet to see it on an actual device, there’s bound to be a lot of speculation on what will be new with the chipset.
An industry source is now suggesting that the chipset will be about 50% more powerful than Samsung’s Exynos 7420 chipset that is currently powering all of 2015 Samsung flagships.
This will give the Snapdragon 820 a significant advantage over the current market leader, which is excellent news for Qualcomm. However, we should also be mindful of the fact that Samsung will release its own flagship chipset soon, which will make for a better comparison with the Snapdragon 820.
The Snapdragon 810 chipset received some flak from the industry due to the overheating issues it faced. Although the chip maker resolved it to some extent with the 2.1 upgrade of the chip, some users still complained about seeing unusual amount of heat from the processor.
