Multi-core 64-bit Snapdragon teased for IFA

qualcomm-htc-teaser-710x532

A recent tweet from Qualcomm teased that during next week’s IFA in Berlin, Qualcomm will reveal a multi-core 64-bit Snapdragon powered Smartphone.

The fact that Qualcomm is revealing a multi-core 64-bit Snapdragon via phone is not surprise at all. Especially since HTC has been teasing its multi-core 64-bit Snapdragon phone, the HTC Desire 820, for quite sometime now. This adds to HTC’s new, and dominant, 64-bit Snapdragon line-up, with the first Qualcomm powered 64-bit device being the HTC Desire 510. The Desire 820 is also expected to be revealed during IFA.

Qualcomm’s tweet also came with a teaser image. The one posted above. The exact tweet stated “We’re thinking about your future: a powered multi-core 64-bit smartphone is headed to .” Many are claiming that this device looks like an HTC device, and that the phone Qualcomm is revealing is the HTC Desire 820. But we’ll just have to wait and see.

    64 bit is about greater throughput of data and significantly lower power consumption, it also stands to benefit far higher resolution screens at faster refresh rates.
    I’m know one of now approximately 10 million who have bought the LG G3 worldwide with its 1440p screen and 4k or UHD video recording.
    Very happy with this device but look forward to 2015 when LG does incorporate a 64 bit processor and ‘fast charging technology’.

      No, 64-bit is not really that main point…it is the ARMv8 architecture and instruction sets that are important. 64-bit is icing on the cake.

      Lag and refresh rate etc probably has more to do with the GPU. It shows that Qualcomm S801 GPU can’t handle the high resolution of G3.

      What LG did with 2k display and 4k video are for PURE MARKETING. There is no reason to have either of these.
