Qualcomm executive: 30 smartphones based on the Snapdragon 820 are currently in the planning phase

According to a new report from China, Qualcomm President Frank Meng has recently revealed that multiple smartphone manufacturers from around the world have shown interest in using the upcoming Snapdragon 820. Meng said that no less than 30 smartphone models based on the Snapdragon 820 are currently in the planning and design phase.
Meng did not mention any particular smartphone makers but given that most high-end smartphones use Snapdragon chips, there's reason to believe that companies such as Sony, HTC, LG, Xiaomi, ZTE, and many others have their eyes set on the Snapdragon 820.
According to previous rumors, Qualcomm will start sending Snapdragon 820 samples to smartphone makers in October. As always, once manufacturers start test-driving the new chip, we'll probably start witnessing various leaks that hint at Snapdragon 820-powered smartphones.
As revealed by Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 820 will come with new custom CPU cores, a significantly improved Adreno 530 GPU, a new Hexagon 680 DSP chip, as well as native anti-malware protection. Sources suggest that the Snapdragon 820 will be manufactured using Samsung's 14nm FinFET technology, which might help alleviate the overheating problems that we've witnessed on multiple Snapdragon 810-based smartphones.

thats the sad part. No choice. I skip purchasing any phone in 2015 due to crapdragon. 820 sound promissing, but the question is when they are releasing it? I am constantly reading news from last 6 months but no news about release date

SD810 is, was, and always will be... crap. With Intel gaining market share and MediaTek creating advanced deca-core chipsets, it seems like the end of Qualcomm Mobile SoCs.

Mediatek 10 cores can't hold a candle to the new SD820, and the GPU is not the best you'll find. A different thing is in the mid to low markets, where they are beating Qualcomm. And Intel gaining market share? where? Which phones apart of the Asus Zenfone 2 is using intel? I don't get why so much hate for a company like Qualcomm that have been on the top of the mobile revolution for so long.

Samsung lover are like this usually. Qualcomm had the best SOC for android since a long time they drop the ball one time and sudenly its the end of Qualcomm.. Samsung was failling again and again they have one success and now they the king lol. Ridiculous. SD820 will show everyone what a real SOC should be. For me its like a mix of what Apple do ( super single core performance good GPU ) and others SOC ( quad core with good multicore performance )

PA need to stop the propaganda machine.. SD810 overheat was caused by 3 factors in order of importance : Big little architecture , Stock arm core and finally the 20 nm build had some part to play in it. Proof is Exynos throlling up to 40% and i had several S6 and S6 edge return for overheating ( not a single M9 btw ) The New SD820 solved all those issues. Quad core instead of crappy big little. Custom core instead of crappy stock core. 14 nm finfett instead of 20 nm.
