Qualcomm really loves to tease its upcoming mobile processors early, even if they’re not coming out for a long long time. We’re still playing with the Snapdragon 801 and waiting patiently for the all powerful Snapdragon 805 to come to mainstream devices, but it looks like Qualcomm is already testing the Snapdragon 810 processor. Or at least, so an AnTuTu benchmark says.
According to AnTuTu, the rig with the Snapdragon 810 contains an impressive 4GB of RAM, a WQXGA (2560×1600) resolution display, an Adreno 430 GPU and Android 4.4.2. Interestingly enough, the processor was clocked from 200 MHz to 940 MHz, not reaching anywhere near its possible limit. Considering the Snapdragon 801 goes all the way to 2.5 GHz, this chip was just scratching the surface of its potential in these benchmarks.
Apparently the results are good considering the low clock speed. But the processor is still a long way out, as it will not ship until at least the first half of 2015, most likely on the later side of that. So don’t get too excited, as we won’t see this kind of power for a while.
