Step aside Snapdragon 820, the first Snapdragon 823 phone might be weeks away

Qualcomm Snapdragon 820

Up until a few months ago, the tech world was buzzing for Qualcomm’s #Snapdragon820 silicon. Manufacturers have obliged accordingly, as there are a handful of smartphones in the market today running the new chipset. But this might soon be old news, with a slightly more powerful Snapdragon 823 all set to hit devices as well.

If a report is anything to go by, Chinese OEM LeEco could unveil a new smartphone running the said chip. The device will apparently be announced at the Mobile World Congress Shanghai which is scheduled to take place between June 29 to July 1.

LeEco is a vastly popular company in China and is known for its content distribution services. The company recently went through a makeover for its mobile wing, renaming itself LeEco (previously known as LeTV). So it shouldn’t be a surprise to many that a Snapdragon 823 based smartphone will be coming out of this particular manufacturer.

Speaking more about the Snapdragon 823, it will feature the same quad-core CPU architecture but with two 2.6 GHz cores and two 2.0 GHz cores respectively, while the Snapdragon 820 features a 2.15 GHz + 1.59 GHz combination. So it’s more about an increased clock speed than a revamped chipset architecture, so current device owners don’t have much to be disappointed about.
