New generation of Qualcomm Snapdragon chips are leaked
A leaked presentation of Qualcomm's next generation Snapdragon chips reveals plenty to be looking forward to. Based on the future Krait architecture, the MSM8270, MSM8930, MSM8960, and APQ8064 are expected to be as much as five times faster than current CPU chips. When it comes to graphics power, they are said to be 4 times faster which provides the user with 'console quality gaming'. 

A chip made out of a a 28 nanometer process would have 23% more computing power and use 47% less battery power than an Cortex A-15 running at the same speed. Similar to the A-15, these Snapdragon chips could run at 2.5GHz and will be offered in single-core to quad-core models.

Qualcomm will be sending out the MSM8960 with 3G and 4G LTE cellular capabilities by the end of spring with the remaining chips getting tested by the end of this year. But don't expect to see this new generation of Snapdragon chips in a handset until sometime next year. As you can see below, this new generation of Snapdragon will be capable of running 1080p displays and 3D video, 7.1 Dolby SurroundSound and a 20MP camera.

With technology like this, the future can't get here fast enough.
