Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 announced with Kryo CPU

Qualcomm Snapdragon 820The Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset was officially announced at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The chipset will be built on a FinFET manufacturing process, but Qualcomm didn't specify if this means TSMC's 16nm or Samsung's 14nm tech will be used.

The Snapdragon 820 will debut with Qualcomm's Zeroth cognitive computing platform. This means, the platform can anticipate users needs and actions in advance. One real-life application of the platform as demoed on stage is a camera recognizing the subject of the photo.

Inside the chip Qualcomm's custom ARMv8 CPU core known as Kryo, also makes a first appearance. We know that Kryo, features 64-bit architecture, but at this point there aren't any more details regarding it.

Qualcomm says it will start sampling the Snapdragon 820 in the second half of 2015. This leaves us to anticipate the first devices rocking the chip early 2016. Expect more information about the Snapdragon 820 as it becomes available.
