The mobile world moves at a ridiculously fast pace, as today’s tech quickly becomes last week’s news. Qualcomm is no exception to the rule, as it’s just unveiled its latest flagship processor in the form of the Snapdragon 821.
Much like the Snapdragon 801 improved upon the Snapdragon 800, the Snapdragon 821 builds on the Snapdragon 820.
“Building on the technology leadership introduced with the Snapdragon 820 platform, the 821 is engineered to deliver faster speed, improved power savings, and greater application performance…” Qualcomm explained in a news release.
The chipmaker claims a 10% performance improvement and a new clock speed of 2.4Ghz (the previous processor delivered a top speed of 2.2Ghz).
Still, Qualcomm claims that the chip isn’t a replacement for the 820 though.
“Rather than replace the Snapdragon 820, the 821 is designed to complement and extend the competitive strengths of our Snapdragon 800 lineup.”
The company hasn’t revealed much else about the processor, aside from when you can get your hands on a Snapdragon 821-powered phone…
“You can expect commercial devices powered by the 821 in the second half of 2016.”
