Since the beginning of 2016, a lot of rumors have suggested that this year, some smartphones will feature the Snapdragon 821 Processor. And guess what? It’s finally official! Yes, Snapdragon 821 has finally been made official by Qualcomm. And as expected, it is faster than ever. Well, this has given rise to a lot of expectations about its presence in some upcoming flagships. Also, it is expected that the very first device with Snapdragon 821 Chipset will be the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Anyways, keeping those rumors and expectations aside, in this article, we will be discussing everything about the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 Processor :D
Of Course, this is an obvious question. Speed is something that comes to our mind for the very first moment when we hear or read the word ‘Processor.’ So, with a bang, it is 10% faster than the 820. Yeah, you cannot expect it to be very fast than 820 because it is just a slight upgrade! 810 Chip, which was plagued with a lot of issues, one of which was a heating issue, was criticized a lot. So, the 820 chipset was launched as a massive upgrade to 810. And as expected, it was able to provide a smooth performance and better power management. But ‘race Yourself! Because the 821 is finally here to make you experience the real speed! (Indeed!)
Also, a major update in the Snapdragon 821 is that its Quad Core CPU now runs at 2.4GHz as compared to 2.2GHz on 820. Also, the GPU in the Snapdragon 821 is clocked at 650MHz. ( Compared to the 624MHz on the 820!).
Qualcomm has said that the Snapdragon 821 will be seen in the smartphones that will be launched in the second part of 2016. And well, we can expect Samsung Galaxy Note 7, HTC Nexus 2016 (higher end) and a couple of other devices to come up with this new processor. So, what you think about the new Snapdragon 820 Chipset?
