The Snapdragon 800 has had a good run, powering some (bordering on all) of the Android flagship models for the last year. Now, there’s an upgrade. Larger camera sensor support, Ultra HD video capture and a headline maximum clockspeed increase to 2.45GHz are the next-phone boasts of the Snapdragon 801.
It’s no massive reworking, though, with Qualcomm designing the 801 to be easily swapped out for the Snapdragon 800, offering additional benefits like a boost in supported resolution to 2560 x 2048 and a kick up in memory speed to 933MHz from 800MHz. If your Android conversations are so hardcore they involve memory clockspeed comparisons in the pub, you’ll want one.
