The Snapdragon 810 probably won’t come to consumer devices until next June, but Qualcomm has released a development smartphone featuring the said processor. Called the Mobile Developer Platform (MDP) smartphone, it gives developers early access to the processor for testing and optimizing Android applications.
The 810 is an octa-core and 64-bit, so the rest of the specs are also high end. It includes a 6.2-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display, an Adreno 430 GPU, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, microSD slot for expanded storage, 13 MP rear camera with Dual LED flash and 4K video recording, 4 MP front-facing camera, the newest Qualcomm Hexagon DSP, 3,020 mAh battery, and the “latest available Android OS,” which we presume will be Lollipop.
The MDP is going for $799 and will ship by mid-December. A lot of money, but if you consider the Nexus 6 is $649, this isn’t a bad deal considering that you will be getting a processor that probably won’t on other consumer devices for a while.
