A Twitter-based source, Leakfly, has shared preliminary specifications for Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 820 and 600 family processors.

The roadmap document shows that the 820 uses 64-bit ‘TS2’ cores, which are based on a Samsung FinFET 14nm process. The device apparently does not use ARM’s Big.Little architecture but features an Adreno 530 GPU and LTE-A Cat 10 modem.

Moving down the list, the Snapdragon 815 is a less-powerful (but still octa-core) SoC with the Big.Little architecture, an Adreno 450 GPU and the same modem. It is based on a 20nm process, as are the Snapdragon 625 and 629. In fact, these latter devices are identical to each other – it is assumed that they use different radio frequencies – with octa-core processors, an Adreno 418 GPU, LPDDR4 1600 RAM and the same LTE-A Cat 10 modem.

The Snapdragon 620 is, apparently, very similar to the 625/629, although its clock speed (2.0-2.5GHz) is specified. It also has slightly different RAM (LPDDR4 933). Finally, the Snapdragon 616 runs on eight Cortex A53 cores, clocked between 1.8GHz and 2.2GHz. It uses LTE-A Cat 6, an Adreno 408 GPU and is based on a 28nm process.
