Qualcomm won’t have the Snapdragon 810 ready to ship in devices until this spring (likely to appear in the Galaxy S6 and possibly the HTC M9), but it does have a “Mobile Development Platform Smartphone” (MDP/S) based on the chip that’s ready to go. A Canadian company called Intrinsyc already has it available for $800.

The smartphone will come with a big.LITTLE octa-core processor (Cortex A57/Cortex A53), an Adreno 430 GPU, Qualcomm’s Hexagon V56 DSP, VIVE 2-stream 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, IZat Gen8C GPS, 4 GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 32 GB of eMMC 5.0 storage, a 13MP camera with OIS on the back, a 4MP front-shooter, a 6.2″ QHD screen and many sensors. It will also support external connectors such as USB 3.0, micro-HDMI, 3.5 mm headset jack and a microSD slot.

By getting this developer-focused platform out early, Qualcomm is ensuring that many app developers or companies wanting to build devices with this chip will have enough time to optimize them for Qualcomm’s first 64-bit high-end chip.
