Recently there have been many rumors circulating about an upcoming SoC from Qualcomm called the Snapdragon 815. Devices powered by the Snapdragon 810 are not yet common in the market and Qualcomm itself has never even talked about the Snapdragon 815, so while we knew that these rumors had little weight, a confirmation has finally come in from the company. Qualcomm has confirmed that it doesn’t have a Snapdragon 815 SoC in the pipeline.
The chipmaker’s Senior Director of Public Relations Jon Carvill tells Fudzilla that “there are no plans for a Snapdragon 815 processor.” There’s no room left for ambiguity now.
According to the rumors Qualcomm Snapdragon 815 had four Cortex-A72 and Cortex-A53 cores and rest of the specifications were pretty hard to believe. Besides, people know that coming up with a new SoC design takes time, and Qualcomm never dedicated any of its time for a product called the Snapdragon 815.
However Qualcomm did talk about its next flagship SoC at the Mobile World Congress 2015 earlier this month. The Snapdragon 820 was mentioned but it will take some time before this chip makes it into devices. Qualcomm is likely to start sampling the new SoC in the second half of 2015.
Now that Qualcomm had laid the rumors to rest this should finally end the Snapdragon 815’s chapter.
