A leaked Qualcomm roadmap suggests the company’s first 64-bit high-end SoC will launch by the end of the year, with availability in early 2015.
The Snapdragon 810 is set to launch in (very) late 2014, followed by the six-core Snapdragon 808. Both are 64-bit parts. We were expecting the Snapdragon 810 to ship somewhat earlier. The Snapdragon 805 is set to launch in Q4 2014, along with the Snapdragon 410, Snapdragon 610 and Snapdragon 615.
All of them appear to be based on ARM’s stock cores, i.e. the Cortex A57 and Cortex A53. The slides, leaked by Chinese news site Weibo, do not reveal the full spec, either.
We still don’t have the clocks for most of the upcoming parts and some of them look quite similar on paper. We simply do not have enough information to differentiate them, so the SD 615 and SD810 look like siblings at this point, with an octa-core big.LITTLE configuration. However, they will go after different market segments and aside from the basic layout they should not have much in common.
