Qualcomm today unveiled the Snapdragon 820 processor, a top-of-the-line chip bound for flagship handsets and tablets. The 820 features a Qualcomm-designed, 64-bit quad-core Kryo processor. In past chips, Qualcomm used ARM designs; the Kryo is its own and supports clock speeds up to 2.2 GHz. Qualcomm says the Kryo CPU delivers twice the power and efficiency of the Snapdragon 810 thanks to its 14nm process. The 820 is paired with a number of companion elements that boost its overall capabilities, including the Hexagon 680 digital signal processor, Spectra image signal processor, Adreno 530 GPU, X12 LTE modem with support for LTE-U, and advanced tri-band WiFi. The 820 adds QuickCharge 3.0, which Qualcomm says is four times faster than conventional charging and 38% more efficient than QuickCharge 2.0. Qualcomm expects to see the Snapdragon 820 in handsets next year.
