Snapdragon 808

Qualcomm has just announced two new high power chipsets in the form of the Snapdragon 808 and the Snapdragon 810. These will join the Snapdragon 801 and the 805 as the latest high power offerings from the chip maker.

Sadly, these chipsets won’t start making its way to the markets by 2015 with sampling set to begin by the second half of 2014. It seems like these chipsets will be targeted more towards high end Android tablets, which we could have a lot more of in 2015.
