It's a pity that Pantech never release their phones outside of South Korea, they make pretty good phones. I wonder where can I get this beast?

The last roadmap I read indicated that the 805 was intended for devices to be available in the late summer / early fall. So it wouldn't be surprising if phones coming out now are using the 801 chips.

Fed up with these A9 Cortex
It's 2014 the year for A15 Tegra4 Exynos5

Qualcomm is having troubles making a good A15-derived design. That is why they are using the basic design from ARM in their upcoming 64-bit chips.
Samsung ran into some problems with power usage. Nvidia has a good design with the K1, but it also uses too much power. The two core version of the K1 showed promise, but Nvidia for whatever reason, isn't focusing on this configuration.
Leaves the door open for Intel, but x86 has largely been a bust in mobile and Intel made the mistake of not licensing ARM. Imagine where Intel could have been with ARM chips -- running on 22nm now and 14nm later this year.

What's up with the upper right corner? Also, no MicroSD slot?
