Intrinsyc's new Android 6.0 develpment phone, board and tablet all use the Snapdragon 820 SoC
Intrinsyc's Mobile Development Platform devices are used by software developers to help them write apps that support certain Android builds. On December 31st, the company will release its latest MDP products which include a phone, tablet and a board. All three contain the Snapdragon 820 chipset, but the trio cannot connect to a cellular network for voice or data. The phone and tablet do offer Wi-Fi connectivity.

All three kits will not only ship with the Snapdragon 820 SoC under the hood, they feature Android 6.0 pre-installed. The chipset is said to offer twice the performance of the Snapdragon 810 SoC, and is built using the 14nm FinFET process. With a quad-core design, Qualcomm is employing its own homegrown Kryo cores for the chip. The Snapdragon 820 is also reported to be more power efficient than its predecessor.

The Intrinsyc MDP smartphone features a 6.2-inch screen with a 1600 x 2560 resolution, and a 490ppi pixel density. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. There is a fingerprint scanner (Qualcomm's ultrasonic version) and a 21MP rear camera. The phone is priced at $799.

The Open-Q820 board doesn't provide LTE or Wi-Fi connectivity, but does feature 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB of UFS 2.0, which is a faster storage option compared to eMMC. There is a microSD slot, and an HDMI port. A 4.5-inch optional touchscreen is available as is a 13MP camera. The board is priced at $599.

Intrinsyc also offers a tablet for developers, with a 10.1-inch screen carrying a 2160 x 3840 resolution. Priced at $999, the slate will feature an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner.

While the phone and tablet will be the first such devices released with the Snapdragon 820 SoC inside, these are not really made for consumers. So perhaps we should put an asterisk next to their names in the record books.

Thanks for the tip!
