Qualcomm confirmed the existence of its new 'Kryo' processor, a 64-bit chip that would be manufactured on the FinFET process, and sampled sometime in the next 6-12 months. The new Snapdragon 820 processor will be the first SoC to use Qualcomm's new "cognitive computing platform", something known as 'Zeroth', writes Patrick Moorhead for Forbes.

 

Moorhead expects to see Snapdragon 820 samples in the next 6-9 months, with a Snapdragon 820-powered smartphone to be unveiled in "December 2015, worse case October 2016". It could happen even sooner, with Snapdragon 820-powered devices shown off at MWC in March 2016.
