Qualcomm reveals that a Microsoft Lumia, Sony and Motorola flagships with Snapdragon 810 are on the way

Why is it such a surprise that a Qualcomm chipset would be used in a Microsoft Lumia phone? Microsoft announced ages ago, when WP first came out, that it would specifically use Qualcomm chips in every Windows Phone.

Nobody expected them to pick a top of the line SOC. Prior to this they always used previous-gen chips for their flagships.

Not all their flagships. The Snapdragon 800 was top of the line when the Lumia 1520 was announced

Agreed. MS is looking to release their biggest OS upgrade in a looooong time, and will release a flagship device to tout it; it makes sense that they will go for the best! And it's not like they're going to be the first with this chipset anyway... Sooo hoping this will be the perfect 1020/1520 successor I'm waiting for! B-)

Sorry but it's a none issue, they can only go with sd808 and sd810 and by the time the new phone comes out the sd810 will be very out dated like normal and not that new, so they not going to go with the 8o8, so all this is not a big deal, please all stop posting

Oh you know their business plan? Huh, well then please tell us which phone and dates we can expect the 810 to be in a phone. Considering no phone has it right now...in customers hands

Ms have said there top window phones are out at the same time as windows 10 co es out, now by then them having the sd810 is no big deal, as its in like 6+ months time, so good luck witht that, 1st sd810 phone is the lg flex out in jan,, the best part is if sd busness go down the pan before then with bad reports they may move to Intel or Samsung but they have to recode windows for it as they all use sd

Lumia 1030 anyone? :D
Or maybe it's L1530 and then Snapdragon 820 for L1030 :))

The 820 is now rumored to be a fake leak
I hope it was fake
IMO big.LITTLE Octa > True Octa
True Octa have too low single core performance
A big.LITTLE Octa is a better balance IMO
Or even a big.LITTLE Quad would be better

big.LITTLE SOCs since 2014 (Galaxy S5) are all "true" Octa,
"True" Octa now seems to be a marketing word.

big.LITTLE Octas aren't really true octas IMO
Sure all 8 can run at once theoretically
They are more Dual Quad core IMO
Because you have 4 big cores and 4 little cores
Same like how the Terga 3's 4+1 core was still a Quad core, not a Penta core

Later this year?? No Z4 for the first half of 2015 then.

Yea, rumors are that Sony are dropping their 6 month release cycle

Using it is one thing.
Competitive results is another.

This highend lumia phone is exciting, but it may come in Q3 of 2015 :(

I can wait as long as it's before October. They need to unveil this flagship at MWC and release it early August and September at the latest. And it needs to come to Verizon, At&T, and T-Mobile.
