The next-generation Snapdragon 805 processor created a lot of buzz in the market when chipmaker Qualcomm first announced it last September — and it’s still making noise. The processor is entering into production and should appear in the next wave of mobile  devices, such as the Galaxy S5 Prime and the HTC One M8 Prime. The hasty speed could make this a smartphone most desired one.

The Snapdragon 805 processor is the foremost mobile processor to offer system-level Ultra HD support and 4K video capture. It also features enhanced dual camera image signal processors, for multitasking, power efficiency and mobile user experiences.The processor offers Krait 450 quad-core CPU, the first mobile CPU to run at speeds of up to 2.5 GHz per core, along with memory bandwidth support of up to 25.6 GB per second that is designed to provide smooth Web browsing performance.

Qualcomm is going to integrate support for dual cameras in its upcoming Snapdragon 805. This chipset will allow both depth and stereo camera processing, letting a manufacturer implement these features without significant work. The new chip will allow to take 16 MP burst shots at the same time of filming video too. The chip also offers 3D noise reduction on videos and digital image stabilization is allowed by its gyroscope feature.

HTC’s upcoming flagship, the One M8 Prime is powered by a Snapdragon 805 chipset,featuring two cameras on the back. One is the Ultrapixel camera sensor that captures the photo, and the second one is a camera sensor that is used to calculate depth. This reveals that HTC will stick with its Duo Camera feature even for its future flagships and would also encourage other manufacturers to integrate it with their devices.
