HTC Desire 820 to pack 64-bit processor

HTC has shared some interesting details regarding its upcoming Desire 820 smartphone that appears to be the first Android smartphone to sport a 64-bit processor inside. In addition to that the chip will have eight cores.

More information on the phone will be released on September 4 during IFA 2014 but the hints given provide us with a rough picture. If we use some logic we can conclude that the chip, that will be used, will be the Snapdragon 615. This is a processor that indeed has eight cores but is slower than the Snapdragon 808 and Snapdragon 810, while being faster than the Snapdragon 410. The Snapdragon 615 is based on Cortex-A53 technology and has a next-gen Adreno 405 GPU.

A teaser image also shows a number of firsts – first 64-bit Android phone, first 1080p phone, first f/2.0 camera aperture and many others. The picture also tells the HTC Desire 820 will have a front-facing camera and a front-facing grill.

Like we said not much else is known as of now so we will have to wait until September to get a glimpse of the device and learn all its tech specs. We suspect that the Desire 820 will be on the market by the end of the year.
