    If Windows 10 Phone used the new Snapdragon 820 for their flagship smartphone would be a winning combination!

    All custom built

    - Kryo CPU
    - Adreno 530 GPU
    - Zeroth hardware Ai
    - Cat 11 LTE
    - 14nm FinFET

    Expected to be in devices you can actually buy around this time next year.
    Look how long we've known about the 810, and its barely available to actually buy.

    Maybe a 2nd Gen Win 10 phone? Unless the chip is released sooner than expected.

    They obviously will use it, we just don't know when.

    Well since Windows 10 Phone won't release till Q4 2015 that is also when the Snapdragon 820 also released....around Halloween?

    I also read somewhere about Snapdragon 820 sampling in August 2015?

    Also the Snapdragon 810 was supposed too be released in October 2014 but came 3 months later because of bad yields with 20nm.

    Samsung and Global Foundries 14nm FinFET technology has good yields now!

    Just saying.....Starting a new OS with New Hardware sounds good right! At least for a flagship smartphone.

    Microsoft Lumia usually uses previous generation SoC class. I think the best we can hope for is a 810 for the next flagship Lumia for Fall release.

    I will buy an unlock version of an Lumia with all the radios built-in of Microsoft if they decide to finally go and open up the Lumia like their "international versions".

    I From what I found your right!

    The Snapdragon 810 is coming to Lumia as a high end product this fall, unfortunately at the same time as the Snapdragon 820 released in other brands like aka Note5 .....this again doesn't look good for Microsoft using old outdated hardware on a brand new OS? ....... 810 vs 820

    The all custom built Snapdragon 820 is far superior in every way possible!

    I'll have to wait till Windows 10.1 Phone and hope they use the Snapdragon 820 in 2016?

    This is very unfortunate news.

    Don't be so sure about this...

    Microsoft has waited this long to release a new flagship phone and if they can pull a rabbit out of their hat might be able to use the 815/820 chipsets for the Q4 releases.... This is if they can ink a good deal with Qualcom
