Qualcomm announce Snapdragon 800 production to begin late May


Earlier today at an event in Beijing, Qualcomm announced that their top-of-the-range Snapdragon 800 processor will go in to full production late May!

Currently the Snapdragon 600 is found in flagship phones like the S4 and Xiaomi M2S, the new Snapdragon 800 with updated architecture is thought to be heading for a new ZTE device and possibly the Xiaomi Mi3 and Oppo Find 6!

Although demo units were at hand at the Beijing press conference testers were banned from trying out benchmarking software, but judging from the updated Krait 400 architecture, Ardreno 330 graphics and FlexRender technology the new chip should be capable of something spectacular! Infact Qualcomm themselves have announced the 800 could be clocked at 2.3Ghz and capable of 30fps 4K playback!

More updates when the chip officially launches later this year!
