Report: HTC set to debut mid-tier device with 64-bit chip

26 AUG 2014

HTC is expected to unveil an Android device powered by a 64-bit processor at IFA 2014.

According to the most recent speculation, the device will be called Desire 820.

The stand-out feature would be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, which is a 64-bit octocore chip, with four 1.7GHz and four 1GHz cores. This silicon also includes category 4 LTE support, enabling download speeds of up to 150Mb/s.

This is not the first time HTC has been said to be working a device with a 64-bit processor. Earlier speculation said that it is readying a device called A11, powered by a Snapdragon 410 processor (quadcore at up to 1.4GHz).

This device, which has been linked with operator Sprint, is also reported to have a 4.7-inch (854×480 pixel) display and 5 megapixel rear camera.
