Details of Snapdragon 820 processor which is likely powering Padfone X2 and S2

A bit of time has passes since the rumors began floating about the next Padfone (X2 and S2). At that time, the Snapdragon 820 was said to be the processor. We have a few new tidbits about the processor and the benefits it will bring to the new Padfone. These are not confirmed specs, but these are very realistic possibilities at this point.

  • Snapdragon X12 LTE modem for up to 33% faster 4G+ LTE download speeds and up to 200% faster LTE upload speeds compared to the previous generation.
  • Qualcomm TruSignal multi-antenna boost technology to intelligently compensate for signal impediments, improving call reliability, data speeds and call coverage while reducing radio power consumption.
  • Snapdragon 820 processor is available now and is expected to be shipping in devices in the first half of 2016.

    All those specs sound dope! But it’s late April and the PadFone s2 still hasn’t become available for customers. What is going on? Does anyone know?
