This has been a rough year for the leading provider of Android chipsets: Qualcomm’s much talked about Snapdragon 810 has been plagued with issues in multiple devices. For some of us, the awaited Snapdragon 820 sequel cannot come soon enough. Among other changes, the 820 is also planned to be manufactured on a 14 nm process, which should help with the heat generation and power consumption present in the 810.


Perhaps lining up with a rumored Nexus device release from Huawei, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 was previously rumoured to be revealed on August 11th of this year. These rumors stemmed from a series of press invites to a curious Qualcomm event in Los Angeles… As it turns out, the invites were for a “computer graphics and interactive techniques” conference: SIGGRAPH 2015.



The conference may have various graphics or gaming-related technologies from Qualcomm, but it looks like we will have to wait a bit longer still to learn more about the 820.


Keeping in mind that the 810 was allegedly rushed: Would you want the Snapdragon 820 to come sooner rather than later? Discuss below.
