Qualcomm: first device with the new Snapdragon 805 chipset to arrive in May
Qualcomm has revealed on the hush-hush for a Japanese publication that the first Snapdragon 805 device will arrive in May this year, leaving us to wonder what would it be. The schedule Qualcomm set for itself when it announced its newest chipset creation is for it to be in devices by the second half of the year, so a first device in May puts it right in sync with this deadline.
Snapdragon 805 has new Krait CPU cores, new graphics processor, and a bunch of other enhancements that are geared towards encoding, decoding and streaming 4K resolution, which seems will be all the rage this year. There are also image processing improvements for our phone cameras and a bunch of other enhancements you'll be dying to get into your phone or tablet, and, come spring, you'll be able to see its capabilities in the flesh with the mysterious device Qualcomm is referring to.
