Tomorrow, Qualcomm will formally unveil the Snapdragon 820, the corporate’s up to date SoC that’s said to come inside over 30 devices launching next year. There’s a large number of hype surrounding the 820. Not such a lot as a result of its rumored 35% performance boost, however as it’s merely now not the arguable 810 which confronted overheating problems on a few units (but by hook or by crook is still cool and insanely rapid on the Nexus 6P).
Qualcomm’s Tim McDonough took to Twitter these days to remind everybody of day after today’s 820 adventure, announcing that directly later on he’ll be taking on Qualcomm’s respectable Twitter account for a live Q&A consultation. Although they’re positive to introduced a number of main points the next day, now not the whole thing has been stored underneath wraps. We already understand the SoC will function blazing fast LTE speeds and come with Qualcomm’s new Quick Charge 3.0 technology. When it got here to addressing the Snapdragon 810’s arguably overblown overheating considerations, McDonough says the new 820 is already beating OEM thermal requirements. This, he says, will depart shoppers feeling “cool” having a telephone with an 820 inside of. That’s rather comforting.
The statement is scheduled for the next day afternoon, with the Q&A sesh happening at round 12:15 ET. Stay tuned.
