HTC Desire 820 with octa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor to be unveiled at IFA 2014

By August 26th, 2014 AT 10:32 AM

HTC was the first to introduce an Android smartphone, a smartphone with a 1080p display and a smartphone with f/2.0 camera. It appears that it might be able to grab the title of the first brand to introduce an Android smartphone with a 64-bit processor. HTC has confirmed such a phone through its official Weibo account. In the teaser image, HTC claims this device would be the “world’s first octa-core 64-bit phone” and we think that it might be the HTC Desire 820, the successor to the current mid-range Desire 816. The device in the image makes us feel that it will have a good front-facing camera and either a metal-clad design or a metal frame on the sides of the device.

Also, there is a greater possibility that this device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC as the only other 64-bit octa-core processors are the MediaTek’s MT6752 and MT6795 and there is still some time for them to be available to the smartphone vendors.

HTC Achievements

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC contains octa-core ARM Cortex A53 CPU cores (4 x 1.8GHz Cortex A53 + 4 x 1.0GHz Cortex A53) along with Adreno 405 GPU and LP-DDR3 RAM (64-bit @ 800MHz) compatibility. It also supports latest connectivity options such as multi-mode 4G LTE, Wi-Fi ac/b/g/n, NFC and GLONASS A-GPS.

Computer science engineer turned technology blogger. Following consumer electronics industry closely from 2006, he can now predict pretty much where the market is heading. He has a dream to own Android, Windows Phone and iOS smartphones all at the same time.
