Lot of high-end smartphones would come with Snapdragon 800 processor. Samsung had already announced the Galaxy S4-A for the Korean market with LTE-Advanced and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is also likely to come with the Snapdragon 800 chip for select markets. LG G2 that would be announced next week would also comes with this processor. This is definitely going to be the fastest chip for mobile devices for quite a some time.
