ZTE Apollo rumored to boast new 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor
Qualcomm has recently announced their new Snapdragon 808 and 810 processors to be added to the top-tier of mobile processors. With the Snapdragon 801 just beginning to make its way into handsets, we thought it might be awhile until we see the new ones make their way into consumer hands. That may not be the case, thanks to a new leak from the Chinese source, CNMO.
The leak is specifically claiming that the ZTE Apollo, ZTE’s upcoming flagship, will be toting Qualcomm’s new 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor. It is also rumored that they will announce the phone along with the ZTE Athena in the second half of 2014, specifically September. If that is the case, the new processors will have to be on the fast track in order to get into our hands in time.
In the same release, Qualcomm outed that the processors won’t be in consumer devices until the first half of 2015. That being said, the folks over at Qualcomm must be working pretty hard to beat this 2014 release date.
