    Qualcomm today announced their next generation flagship processor for mobile devices. The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 will offer the highest-quality mobile video, imaging and graphics experiences. It will support Ultra HD (4K) resolution natively. Also the new Adreno 420 GPU offers up to 40 percent more graphics processing power than its predecessor. This processor will enable mobile devices to capture 4K video with great power efficiency.

    Features:
    Blazing fast apps and web browsing and outstanding performance: Krait 450 quad-core CPU, the first mobile CPU to run at speeds of up to 2.5 GHz per core, plus superior memory bandwidth support of up to 25.6 GB/second that is designed to provide unprecedented multimedia and web browsing performance.

    Smooth, sharp user interface and games support Ultra HD resolution: The mobile industrys first end-to-end Ultra HD solution with on-device display concurrent with output to HDTV; features Qualcomm Technologies new Adreno 420 GPU, which introduces support for hardware tessellation and geometry shaders, for advanced 4K rendering, with even more realistic scenes and objects, visually stunning user interface, graphics and mobile gaming experiences at lower power.

    Fast, seamless connected mobile experiences: Custom, efficient integration with either the Qualcomm Gobi(TM) MDM9x25 or the Gobi MDM9x35 modem, powering superior seamless connected mobile experiences. The Gobi MDM9x25 chipset announced in February 2013 has seen significant adoption as the first embedded, mobile computing solution to support LTE carrier aggregation and LTE Category 4 with superior peak data rates of up to 150Mbps. Additionally, Qualcomms most advanced Wi-Fi for mobile, 2-stream dual-band Qualcomm VIVE(TM) 802.11ac, enables wireless 4K video streaming and other media-intensive applications. With a low-power PCIe interface to the QCA6174, tablets and high-end smartphones can take advantage of faster mobile Wi-Fi performance (over 600 Mbps), extended operating range and concurrent Bluetooth connections, with minimal impact on battery life.

    Ability to stream more video content at higher quality using less power: Support for Hollywood Quality Video (HQV) for video post processing, first to introduce hardware 4K HEVC (H.265) decode for mobile for extremely low-power HD video playback.

    Sharper, higher resolution photos in low light and advanced post-processing features: First Gpixel/s throughput camera support in a mobile processor designed for a significant increase in camera speed and imaging quality. Sensor processing with gyro integration enables image stabilization for sharper, crisper photos. Qualcomm Technologies is the first to announce a mobile processor with advanced, low-power, integrated sensor processing, enabled by its custom DSP, designed to deliver a wide range of sensor-enabled mobile experiences.

    Availability:
    The Snapdragon 805 processor is sampling now and expected to be available in commercial devices by the first half of 2014.

    First I was bummed my next upgrade is far of because I would've loved a phone with the snapdragon 800 but now that I've read this I'm super excited that my next phone will have the 805 if not better :) (the 805 combined with nokias cameras will create the greatest cameras on a phone period, the competition won't stand a chance even if they have the same chipset :))

    Unless you want to pay $600.00 + "on-contract", that isn't going to happen any time soon. Those type of screens should work on any device now. Its the cost that's prohibitive.

    I do not buy my phones on contract, but I would not rule out the idea of Microsoft making a high end WP8.1 with a sapphire screen, yet.
