    Qualcomm announced its Snapdragon 805 all the way back in November, and we're still waiting for it to show up in commercial hardware. Rumors have suggested that Pantech might be first to take advantage of the 805 with its Vega Iron 2, but that's not yet confirmed. When will we actually be able to get our hands on this advanced silicon? Well, it's clearly not a consumer-focused product, but a Snapdragon-805-based Mobile Development Platform Tablet is set to become available for devs in just a few weeks. A couple years back we looked at an earlier MDP/T, when Qualcomm was then introducing ...

    CES 2014 is just around the bend. Anton D. Nagy, Michael Fisher and yours truly will be in attendance, and coverage will begin shortly after we land in Las Vegas Sunday afternoon. This particular show has been growing in size and attendance almost every year since its induction in 1967. But for us mobile guys, the show has become far more sparse with juicy details and big product announcements. It's far too easy for a major device to get lost in the mass of new announcements at a show like CES. As such, companies like Motorola, HTC, Samsung, and have taken to one-off events to announce ...

    A few weeks back we heard Qualcomm announce its most advanced mobile SoC to date, the Snapdragon 805. With a new GPU, it sounded pretty great, but a raw chip doesn't do any of us much good until someone builds a phone around it. So, who's game? While this is very much still in the “rumor” department, we get word today that Oppo could be one of the first OEMs to eye the 805, with plans to place the chip in its upcoming Find 7 Android. Suggested hardware specs for the Find 7 (Find 5 pictured up top) are pretty darn impressive-sounding: besides the Snapdragon 805, the phone might get a ...

Curiously, with high-end flagships just starting to arrive with this super-powerhouse of a processor inside, we started to hear rumblings that Qualcomm may have been working on an update to the Snapdragon 800 processor. It turns out that the rumors ...
