Snapdragon 821 Official, Offers 10% Improvement Over SD820

Snapdragon 820 is the clear market leader when it comes to flagship grade processors in 2016, but this capable chip is soon going to be beaten by its successor, the Snapdragon 821. We have been hearing a lot about Snapdragon 821 and its presence in the upcoming flagship smartphones and now, Qualcomm has just made the chip official, further revealing that we can expect to see smartphones running this SoC in the second half of the year.


The chipmaker reveals that Snapdragon 821 will offer 10% increase in performance as compared to Snapdragon 820. It features the same quad-core architecture as the SD820 but runs at 2.4GHz instead of 2.2GHz. The company is yet to reveal detailed specs of the new chip, but the GPU and other specs are expected to be almost similar to the Snapdragon 820.

Turns out, the Snapdragon 820 chip which started featuring inside flagships earlier this year, is old already!
