With custom 64-bit CPU core

While some of the first devices based on the Snapdragon 810 are about to hit the global market, Qualcomm has decided to unveil some the first details regarding its next big thing at Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona, the Snapdragon 820 SoC.

Although it did not unveil a lot of details during its keynote at MWC 2015, the company did say that the Snapdragon 820 will be built on a FinFET manufacturing process, so it is either TSMC's 16nm or Samsung's 14nm node.

Qualcomm also noted that the Snapdragon 820 SoC will be part of its new Zeroth platform and feature the first with 64-bit custom Qualcomm ARMv8 CPU core, named the Kyro.

While Qualcomm was unwilling to shed any more specific details regarding that custom Qualcomm CPU core, or the GPU part for that matter, it did say that first samples are expected sometime in the second half of this year.
