Microsoft Windows 10 Lumias to rock Snapdragon 810

If Samsung doesn’t want them, we’ll take some

Upcoming Microsoft Lumia phones will use Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 810 processor.

The Snapdragon will find its way to new Windows 10 phones, according to Microsoft mobile product manager Juha Kokkonen.

Kokkonen said the company will continue its relationship with Qualcomm, which it inherited from Nokia.

"We look forward to continuing this relationship to deliver best-in-class Lumia smartphones, powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processors, and offer an unprecedented combination of processing power, rich multimedia, high-performance graphics and wireless connectivity for our customers," said Kokkonen.

This is of course to be expected, since the Windows Phone platform has strict hardware guidelines and relies exclusively on Qualcomm silicon.

However, Kokkonen did not talk about any specific products. The first batch of Windows 10 phones should come sooner rather than later, since it’s been a while since Microsoft’s mobile OS was overhauled.

Windows Phone 8.1 devices rely on 32-bit Qualcomm processors, so the Snapdragon 810 would be the first 64-bit processor used in a Windows mobile.
