The largest smartphone chipset maker Qualcomm today confirmed that a “Snapdragon powered multi-core 64-bit smartphone” is likely to be unveiled at the IFA 2014. However, the chipmaker did not provide much information but released a teaser image. Reports coming from the industry show that this chipset could be found in the upcoming HTC Desire 820.
Unlike the HTC Desire 510 that was announced this week with a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor, the HTC Desire 820 is expected to host an octa-core Snapdragon 615 CPU on-board. The Snapdragon 615 comprises of four Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz and four Cortex A53 clocked at 1.0GHz. Now if this new chipset has to arrive with the HTC Desire 820, then we believe that to explore the capabilities of Snapdragon 615 the device should run the latest launched Android L.
With time tickling close to the commencement of IFA 2014 Berlin event next week, we expect a big news for this!
