Information on new Snapdragon chips becomes available

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 is one of the fastest chips Qualcomm can offer now but although it has not gained a significant piece of the market yet, the chip will soon be followed by at least three new models – the Snapdragon 823, Snapdragon 828 and Snapdragon 830 with each one of them bringing interesting new features.

The Snapdragon 823 is the first SoC that we will discuss here. The chip will be made on 14 nm LPP technology and will come out by the end of this quarter. Previously called Snapdragon 821, the Snapdragon 823 will have four Kryo 100 cores that will run at a high, but unknown, clock speed, Adreno 530 graphics and an X12 LTE modem with support for LTE Cat 12 and LTE Cat 13. The chip will also support Quick Charge 3.0 and will be able to reach data transfer speeds of up to 600 Mbit/sec.

The Snapdragon 823 will later be replaced by a new chip called Snapdragon 828. This one will be made on a 10 nm FF production process. The chip will likely come with Kryo 200 cores inside but their number is unclear. The chip will have an Adreno 519 GPU that will allow users to record 4K and 2K videos at 60 FPS and support for LPDDR4X memory. The Snapdragon 828 will also have an X12 LTE modem and will become available in Q4 2016.

The last chip on the list is the Snapdragon 830, which will also be made on 10 nm. This SoC will include an unknown number of Kryo 200 cores, Adreno 540 graphics, support for LPDDR4X memory and the ability to record 4K and 2K videos at 60 FPS. The SoC will also be able to transmit data at up to 980 Mbit/sec. The Snapdragon 830 is expected in Q4 2016 and the first devices based on it should appear in Q1 2017.
