Qualcomm generally refrains from announcing next-generation application processor (AP) while the current AP is in its prime but to be fair, this isn’t every other time. The Snapdragon 810 is notorious for overheating but the processor that will replace it will be Snapdragon 820, which Qualcomm confirmed just now.
Devices powered with the new CPU is expected in 1H 2016 and will feature Qualcomm’s Adreno 530 GPU and 14-bit Qualcomm Spectra image signal processing unit (ISP) for improved picture quality.
While the intrinsic details about the processor is unknown at the moment, Qualcomm is more than happy to share the GPU details, which will be 40 percent faster and will consume 40 percent less power compared to Adreno 430. It will also support, 4K HEVC recording at 60 fps. The ISP on the other hand supports up to three cameras up to 25 megapixel in resolution and improved power efficiency.
