Qualcomm announces its new Snapdragon 820 processor

The company is also speeding up how fast you can charge a mobile device: The Snapdragon 820 adds Quick Charge 3.0 technology, which it says is 38 percent more efficient than the current Quick Charge 2.0 charging found in many current, high-end devices.

Get ready for the next generation of mobile.

Qualcomm announces its new Snapdragon 820 processor

In reality however, the image is nothing more than virtual reality.

With 60 devices already in the pipeline, the company is hoping advancements like improved graphics can regain a few of the trust lost over the somewhat disastrous Snapdragon 810 processor that was dropped from the Samsung S6. Efficiency is really a key point here - according to Qualcomm, the improvements it made to the underlying architecture translate into almost a third (30 percent) less power consumption. Making that a pretty significant improvement. The only way to believe a flying droid or a possessed doll is sneaking up behind you is for you to hear them approaching from behind.

The integrated LTE modem supports Category 12 network speeds, theoretically pegged at 600 Mbps downloads and 150 Mbps uploads. Along with Cat. 13 uplink LTE with speeds up to 150Mbps.

WiFi speeds should also be better thanks to support for 802.11ad WiFi and MU-MIMO. Finally, let's take a moment to talk about camera performance. You should obviously expect to see this chip inside most (if not all) of next year's Android flagship smartphones. Quick Charge 3.0 is available in other processors from Qualcomm as well, including the Snapdragon 617 in the HTC One A9 announced last month. It supports a wider range of colors, and is supported by the latest 14-bit image sensors. Improvements are across the board, with things like a flexible hybrid autofocus framework and multi-sensor fusion algorithms for next generation computational photography, along with support for up to 25 megapixels at 30 frames per second with zero shutter lag. And Qualcomm is boasting that the Snapdragon 820 is the first commercial chip to work with LTE-U, a way to access both licensed - think carrier supported - and unlicensed wireless spectrum for mobile broadband.
