A few months back, we had revealed the possible specs of the upcoming Kirin 900 series processors. Now, our source has some information about the Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 815 chipset.
According to our source, the Snapdragon 815 will come with four Cortex A72 cores and four Cortex A53 cores on the big.LITTLE architecture. Unsurprisingly, it will feature the next generation Qualcomm Adreno GPU and will be manufactured using the new FinFet process. So, it could most likely use the 16nm FinFet. Our source also said that Qualcomm may tweak the cores to boost performance.
So, the upcoming Snapdragon 815 will be similar to the Snapdragon 620 which is already launched, but will be manufactured on a smaller node and will have all the features that you can expect from a top end Snapdragon 800 series chipset.
He also says that Qualcomm is delaying the launch of Snapdragon 815 mainly because the company doesn’t want to hurt the sales of the 810 powered smartphones in the market such as the HTC One M9 and the LG G Flex 2.
So what do you think about the new Snapdragon 815?
