Qualcomm Snapdragon 815 chipset to feature Quad Cortex A72 and Quad Cortex A53 cores?
The chipset will employ the next-gen Adreno GPU which is expected to be the Adreno 450, and will be built using the FinFet process. Earlier this year, an alleged Qualcomm roadmap revealed that the Snapdragon 815 SoC would include LDDR4 RAM and use the MDM9X55 LTE-A Cat.10 modem.
If you're worried about the Snapdragon 815 overheating like the Snapdragon 810 originally did, it looks like Qualcomm has solved this issue. A recent test conducted internally by Qualcomm shows that the Snapdragon 815 runs cooler than both the Qualcomm 810 and Qualcomm 801 chipsets. By the way, if you're wondering why the Snapdragon 815 has yet to be released by Qualcomm, it's because the latter wants to ring up as many sales of the Snapdragon 810 as it can before demand wanes for that SoC. The Snapdragon 810 is currently found on such recent phones as the LG G Flex 2 and the HTC One M9. You will also find the Snapdragon 810 SoC inside the LG G4, Sony Xperia Z4 and the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro once those models are released later this year.
