HTC Confirms Desire 820 To Pack 64-bit Snapdragon 615 ChipsetBy cheatmaster 07:39 Wed, 21 Jul 2021 Comments
64-bit smartphones are already a reality with the iPhone 5s while several manufacturers are competing to be the first to bring a 64-bit Android to market. HTC might claim that title with the mid-range Desire 820.
The phone has been officially confirmed via the HTC Weibo account though details are very scarce – all the teaser images really say is "64-bit" and "September 4". The first image lists off the HTC firsts – first Android phone, first 1080p phone, first f/2.0 capturing camera aperture and so on.
The second image is more fascinating and shows what appears to be the front-facing camera, off to the side of a front-facing speaker grill. Our Chinese is spotty but that gigantic "64" is hard to misinterpret.

The short text accompanying the second teaser image claims this is the "world's first octa-core 64-bit phone". If it's a elegant Qualcomm chipset then it must be the Snapdragon 615 – it has eight Cortex-A53 cores (the 64-bit replacement of the Cortex-A7) and a next-gen Adreno 405 GPU.
A previous rumor of the HTC A11 claimed a Snapdragon 410 chipset (quad Cortex-A53 with Adreno 306) but that may be a different mid-range Desire phone.
September 4 of course means HTC's IFA event where the company will create a bit for another "world's first" title.
