Qualcomm unveil Snapdragon 820 chipset with 14nm Kyro CPU


Qualcomm have finally revealed details of their next big chipset that is likely to be inside most flagship smartphones next year. The new chipset uses Qualcomm’s new Kyro CPU – which is built on a new 14nm FinFET process, and processes to bring twice as much power and better efficiency.

The new CPU is clocked at 2.2GHZ, although we’re guessing they’ll come with slightly lower/higher clocks from different phone manufactures. The graphics will be handled by the Adreno 530 GPU.

Other features for the new chipset include a new Spectra image signal processor (for up to 28MP photos), QuickCharge 3.0 for a 38-percent more efficient charging over 2.0, an X12LTE modem and advanced Tri-Band Wi-Fi, and added support for Snapdragon Sense ID – which takes an ultrasonic reading of your fingerprint.
