Snapdragon 800 entering mass production next month

Written by Peter Scott

Too late for current crop of flagships

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 is set to enter mass production in late May, according to Engadget

Qualcomm’s flagship SoC for 2013 features Krait 400 cores clocked at 2GHz+, new Adreno 330 graphics with support for 2560x2048 displays, along with 4G LTE and the usual plethora of features found on previous Snapdragons.

Sadly though the 800 is a bit too late to score big smartphone design wins. The Qualcomm 600 already powers the Galaxy S4, HTC one and Optimus G Pro, so we will have to wait a bit before we see the 800 in any mainstream phone.

It looks like the Qualcomm 800 and Tegra 4 will have to slug it on in the tablet space, as both are set to appear halfway between smartphone rollouts.
