    As fast as the current crop of smartphones is, the inevitable march of technological evolution must carry on. Qualcomm is doing their part at advancing the agenda of our silicon overlords by creating a new chipset for next year. This morning they just officially announced their newest advanced Snapdragon chipset. It's called the Snapdragon 805 and its CPU comes with a quad-core Krait 450 CPU clocking in at a whopping 2.5GHz. Additionally, along with this bleeding edge new CPU comes a more powerful GPU as well: the Adreno 420.

    Both of these advanced chips coupled together will boast support for 4K resolution displays, inciting Qualcomm to assert they will have “the first end-to-end Ultra HD solution.” Here's a quote with more of the details,

    Supposedly, Qualcomm has already started shipping samples of this product to OEMs for testing and integration.

    Thats why I pay for the TMobile JUMP program. I love my Note 3, but when the next amazing thing comes out, I want it.

    I love Verizon's coverage. There is no one other than them that get reception at my cottage. I feel like the Verizon edge thing is a rip off.

    It is if you are not paying full price for a device. If you are, then it's fine if you need it!

    This chipset + HTC One M8= love! Make it happen. Honestly I might hold out for the new One regardless, but this would be beyond great to see. It will suck if this isn't the chipset for it though, because that would mean 2015 before it's on board for HTC as they are sticking to one Flagship per year, which would leave them yet again a generation behind the competition processor-wise.

    Anyway, enough of my tangent. This looks to be a promising piece of hardware.
