New Snapdragon 810 reference devices feature mind-blowing specs

Snapdragon 810 Smartphone

Qualcomm is currently testing its next-gen processors, and the current stage involves releasing a pair of new reference devices that showcase the power of the new Snapdragon 810 processor. First up is the Snapdragon 810 MDP Smartphone that features a 6.2-inch QHD display, 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 Ultra HD processor, Adreno 430 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 32GB storage, 13-megapixel rear camera, 4-megapixel front-facing camera, 3020mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0 technology. Also included is an ultrasound emitter, microSD card slot, microUSB 3.0, fingerprint scanner, and Android 5.0 Lollipop. The device is available to registered companies developing with Qualcomm and costs $799.

The second device is the Snadragon 810 MDP Tablet that packs a 10.1-inch 4K (3840×2160) display, 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 Ultra HD processor, Adreno 430 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB storage, 13-megapixel rear camera, 4-megapixel front-facing camera, dual 3D IR gesture cameras, and a 7050mAh battery with Quick Charge technology. The tablet’s also go dual ultrasound emitters, a microSD card slot, microUSB 3.0, and Android 5.0 Lollipop. The device is available to registered companies developing with Qualcomm and costs $999.

Both devices feature specs lists that are far and beyond what we normally find. Unfortunately, consumers aren’t going to be able to get their hands on these devices, so we’ll just have to wait until similar devices make it to market. Both the MDP Smartphone and Tablet will ship to purchasers in December.

What do you think of the specs in these devices?

    I’m surprised the phone has a QHD display since most current high-end phones, and their “test” tablet, have a UHD display.

      I’ve seen the specs quoted elsewhere, so it’s worth pointing out the capital Q (quad) in QHD, which for this device means 2560×1600, vs qHD (quarter) that usually means 960×540.

      UHD tends to refer to 3840×2160 (or similar), which is beyond most high end phones so far.

        You’re right, I was thinking of my Note 4′s camera option to film in UHD. My bad

      • Dirty Budha

        I found a site that had the specs listed:
        6.17” QHD (2560×1600) 490ppi

    • Dirty Budha

      A site I found listed the specs:
      Ultrasound emitter for gesture applications

  • Urban k

    This not true. Individuals can purchase the phone

    • Mrnobody

      Urbank, it helps to site your source.

        I got to the checkout stage on shopintrinsync com but didn’t go further. $826.
        It did say “This product can only be sold to approved companies developing for snapdragon processors” and requires the company name in the checkout stage. So they may be filtering out those that are trying to buy it but aren’t approved.

    SHUTUP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!
