Qualcomm teases Snapdragon 800 powered device for CES 2015, could be an LG


Qualcomm teaser CES 2015

It’s not often chipset makers are the ones hyping an upcoming device, but for CES 2015, Qualcomm is doing just that. Posted on Twitter earlier today, Qualcomm is teasing what appears to be some kind of new smartphone for a CES unveiling.

Although the specific manufacturer was left out of the teaser, they mentioned it will be “Snapdragon 800 powered” (likely in reference to the 800 series which covers 800-810), as well as the appearance of very pronounced rear buttons, a clue it could be some type of LG device. ASUS is also a possibility, but the buttons look like cross between the LG G3’s texture with aluminum power button, and the LG G Flex’s more square shape.

Although nothing has been confirmed just yet, we wouldn’t be a bit surprised to find this device is the upcoming LG G Flex 2. We wont have to wait much longer to find out, CES kicks off in Las Vegas on January 6th, 2015.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Snapdragon 800? Why would they hype an old processor? Typo?

    1. If I’m not mistaken Qualcomm helped Amazon hype their Fire Tv’s Snapdragon 600 a little.

    2. Possibly in reference to Snapdragon 800 series, which includes 800 – 810.

  2. The current high-end (805) has an Adreno 420 GPU. The Adreno 430 GPU in the 810 is a monster with over double the specs. This is really what Qualcomm needed to focus on — good to see them doing so.

  3. Kepler says bring it!

  4. I currently own a flex. I upgraded to a nexus 6. What a piece of crap. Nasty battery life, lags as well as connectivity issues. Took it back to sprint after 10 days. Had my flex activated and it works great. Now with what I have been reading about the new and improved Flex 2. I am not impressed at all. Lowering the display size really? Then putting in a substandard processor. Only increasing it from a 720 to 1080p. Wow not really thinking outside the box are you LG. I just might have to go back to samsung or if sony bumps up their game and goes to sprint. There are options. Will wait and see next week what LG brings.
