Qualcomm today announced Snapdragon 821, which is apparently 10 percent faster than the Snapdragon 820.

The Snapdragon 821 is very similar to the Snapdragon 820, as it still includes a lot of the tech from the 820, such as the 600 Mbps X12 LTE modem. according to Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 821 includes a clock speed of 2.4GHz, up from the Snapdragon 820’s 2.15GHz. According to Qualcomm, we will be seeing the 821 on drones, tablets, robots, virtual reality headset, and of course, smartphones.

Qualcomm did not reveal if this would use the same Adreno 530 GPU, but the clock speed will likely be higher than 624 MHz in the Snapdragon 820.Other features are similar, including integrated 600 Mbps X12 LTE modem, Support for up to 4K Ultra HD and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.

Snapdragon 820 currently powers some of the most advanced, feature rich smartphones today, including the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, Xiaomi Mi5, LG G5, HTC 10, LeEco LeMax 2, and Sony Xperia X.
