After Snapdragon 810 present in many smartphones announced for MWC 2015, Qualcomm presents SoC Snapdragon 820 that will operate a specific Kryo 64-bit CPU this time.
To ensure its presence in the segment for 64-bit mobile processors, Qualcomm group had to give up to exploit its Krait microarchitecture core to switch to standard ARM Cortex standard. This development has expanded to the highest level in high-end SoC Snapdragon 810, featuring cores of A53 and A57.
Since the announcement of this platform, Qualcomm had stressed that it would update its Krait architecture to take it to the 64-bit. This is something almost made for the MWC 2015 in Barcelona, with the announcement of the Snapdragon 820 platform.
Details are still scarce because it is not expected until the second half of 2015 (as a sample, and probably in 2016 for a presence in smartphones) but the group has already announced that it will benefit from a Kryo CPU portion using a 64-bit architecture developed internally.
We can already expect a high-end platform in the continuity of Snapdragon 810 but will also be compatible with the new Zeroth solution of Qualcomm processing information and image recognition bodes and new interactions with audio and voice recognition and visual perception.
Note that the new processor will use a FinFET etching technology based on 3D transistors but the secret remains as to the nature of the provider, between 14nm FinFET of Samsung or 16nm FinFET of TSMC.
