The Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 will be manufactured on the TSMC 16-nm node (or maybe the Samsung the 14nm node that already used on the Exynos CPUs for Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge) and using non-planar FinFET architecture.


Don’t expect to see Snapdragon 820 in any mobile devices anytime soon. The company will begin to produce sample in the second quarter of 2015. So, we expect flagships around fifth quarter of 2015 to be the first devices.
