    It looks like Qualcomm is just never satisfied with impressing mobile tech geeks. They continue to push the envelope, even when we are already blown away by the amazing tech they show off. Their latest creations scheduled to debut next year are the Snapdragon 808 and 810. Here's a quick spec breakdown of these powerhouse chipsets,

    Snapdragon 808 MSM8992: (The 808 differs from the 810 primarily with a different core arrangement and slightly slower GPU and memory interface.)

    • CPU: 2 Cortex A57 cores + 4 Cortex A53 cores (hexa-core, big.LITTLE arrangement)
    • ISA: 32-bit/64-bit ARM v8-A, 20nm
    • GPU: Adreno 418
    • Memory bandwidth: 64-bit LPDDR4-933
    • LTE: Cat 6/7 LTE, built-in
    • eMMC interface: 5.0
    • Wi-Fi: no (requires separate Wi-Fi module)
    • Camera ISP: 12-bit dual-ISP
    • H.256 encode/decode: no/yes
    Snapdragon 810 MSM8994: (The 810 is the higher-end of the two chipsets, and is designed to follow-up the Snapdragon 805, which is coming later this summer.)

    • CPU: 4 Cortex A57 cores + 4 Cortex A53 cores (octo-core, big.LITTLE arrangement)
    • ISA: 32-bit/64-bit ARM v8-A, 20nm
    • GPU: Adreno 430
    • Memory bandwidth: 64-bit LPDDR4-1600
    • LTE: Cat 6/7 LTE, built-in
    • eMMC interface: 5.0
    • Wi-Fi: no (requires separate Wi-Fi module)
    • Camera ISP: 14-bit dual-ISP
    • H.256 encode/decode: yes/yes
    It looks like Qualcomm is now starting to make excellent use of the big.LITTLE architecture, which makes their stuff a bit more similar to Samsung's Exynos. Regardless of how things are evolving in the mobile tech world, Qualcomm seems to be on the leading edge. Can Samsung and NVIDIA (or any of the other chip OEMs) really compete with Qualcomm's lead?

    Samsung is definitely not sitting idle, and although they haven't announced parts, they have publicly stated to have 64-bit SoCs this year (several Cortex-A53 and A57 based designs out by Q3 this year). So it seems likely Samsung will gain marketshare on the high end from QC.
