Vivo Xplay 5 could be the first phones to use Snapdragon 810, others to follow

Self proclaimed Chinese tech analyst, Pan Jiutang, has taken to Weibo with his thoughts on which phones to use the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. Here is what he came up with.

Pan Jiutang, is quite a vocal member of Weibo and often has something to say about upcoming Chinese tech. After the official release of the Snapdragon 810, the Chinese analyst took to Weibo with his claims at which Chinese smartphone maker will be the first, possibly in the world to use the chipset.

His final choices included the Oppo Find 9, Vivo Xplay 5, and the Xiaomi Mi5. Now, based on what we know of the way Chinese tech launches, we would say that the Vivo Xplay 5 is most likely going to be the first of the 3 to get the processor, followed by the Find 9 and then the Xiaomi Mi5 much later in to 2015. The Vivo Xplay 5, will probably launch in around December of January in time of the Chinese Spring Festival.

With that said though, there is one other phone maker who could be first. It’s a long shot but we have a feeling that IUNI have another phone up their sleeve which will launch at the end of the year. Although the company is small, its ties to Gionee would give them some sway at Qualcomm and we might just see the IUNI U4 pack an 810.

So what about the Snapdragon 810? What does it have to offer? Well we know that the 810 will be an 8-core processor and will use a big.LITTLE architecture to switch between cores based on usage to boost battery life. The SoC will be capable of 4K video have an Adreno 430 GPU, and will have LTE capabilities too. Qualcomm’s use of an 8-core processor is interesting as earlier this year they published a video teasing Mediatek for their octacore processors and how they simply weren’t necessary.

Thanks to Simon for the tip.

    Hopefully the vivo will get it as a basic upgrade from the xplay 3s with a much better camera. That would be my next phone!

    This will surely be expensive, especially with the latest Snapdragon processor and all the premium stuff that Vivo will pack the phone with. But for now, I’m hoping I’ll be able to buy myself a blue Vivo Xshot somewhere or a Meizu MX4 with Ubuntu OS.

    IUNI would be just perfect 🙂 i guess mtk isn’t polished enough just now with their 6595. besides, snapdragon may function better because of good kernels, which mediatek isn’t exactly known for with the closed code.

    you can still have an mi3 and be perfectly fine, the last year there wasnt enough power spike in order to push you to buy a new phone, and they still wont give more power, its not like they dont have it ready, we had snapdragon 800 for quite a while and 801 wasnt a good power boost, 810 seems to be way better and a reason to buy a new phone but it is not coming fast enough, have we come to a point that we dont need more power ? we had huge spikes in the last years but since s5 was out all we see is the same snapdragon … give us a reason to change our mobiles…android L + snapdragon 810 will be a good power spike
