Nokia working on Snapdragon 800 powered smartphone
A new leak suggests that the Finnish manufacturer is working on a device powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, the fastest chip that is available in the market right now.
A changelog file hosted on Nokia’s servers indicates that the company is manufacturing a device powered by quad-core processor, most probably Snapdragon 800. The file also mentions Adreno 330 GPU which makes it pretty obvious that its powered by the mighty chipset.
The Snapdragon 800 features a quad-core Krait 400 CPU with clock speeds of up to 2.2 GHz per core, an integrated 3G/4G LTE modem, USB 3.0 connectivity and Adreno 330 GPU that offers 50 percent better graphics performance compared to its predecessor, Adreno 320. The reference code MSM8274 refers to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chipset.
The only thing that we are not sure about is its display and resolution. Any device powered by Adreno 330 should be strong enough to run 1080p resolution at minimum. The only thing we can be sure of is that a powerful device is in works which may change the future of Windows Phone 8. The same chipset will be installed in the new, LTE-A powered Galaxy S4 as well. This might be the first time we will see Windows Phone 8 device giving competition to Android devices in terms of hardware specifications.
