Qualcomm expands its chipset monopoly to Mars

Qualcomm expands its chipset monopoly to Mars

Anyone who's been following the ins and outs of Android for the last few years will remember the OnePlus One. The teasers and promotions were pretty obnoxious, but the phone itself was great when it launched in 2014. A big part of that was thanks to the Snapdragon 801, which made the OPO faster than any other phone in its price range. This powerful ARM chip popped up in a lot of less influential (and more expensive) devices that same year, and now it's on Mars. The Snapdragon 801 is at the heart of NASA's Ingenuity helicopter, which just made history as the first machine to take flight on another planet.

[Update: Mi Note Pro, Mi Box Mini, And Headphones Too] Xiaomi Announces The Mi Note With A 5.7-Inch 1080p LCD, 3000mAh Battery, Snapdragon 801, And More

Xiaomi has been stepping up its hardware game in recent years to compete with more established OEMs, and the newly announced Mi Note is the latest example of this commitment.

Qualcomm Announces The Snapdragon 801 Because Presumably Still Using The 800 Is For Losers

Qualcomm Announces The Snapdragon 801 Because Presumably Still Using The 800 Is For Losers

Snapdragon 800, you say? Old hat, dear readers. Meet Snapdragon 801 - it's the Snapdragon 800 you've come to know and love, plus one. With Qualcomm's flagship mobile chip having had over a year since its announcement at CES 2013 - and no definitive successor in sight - it seems the world's #1 ARM chip vendor thought it would be wise to give the 800 a bit of a facelift for the first half of 2013.

The Snapdragon 801 really isn't all that different from the 800. In fact, it's almost exactly the same - but slightly better. While it packs the same Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU, the 801 ups the clock speed ante on both to 2.5GHz and 578MHz (from 2.26GHz and 550MHz), respectively.
