Well, the company just released a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 reference smartphone and tablet hardware. Both the smartphone and the tablet are now available to order from the Canadian company Intrisinsync. Let’s check out what they have to offer, except the Snapdragon 810 chip which is of course located in both of them.

The smartphone features a 6.2-inch 2560 x 1600 display along with 4GB of LP-DDR4 RAM (first time we see this RAM commercially available) and 32GB of internal storage (expandable via MicroSD card). The device is, of course, powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810, a 64-bit octa-core processor which comes with an Adreno 430 GPU for graphics rendering and Qualcomm Hexagon V56 DSP. On the back of this handset, you’ll find a 13-megapixel camera while there’s a 4-megapixel shooter located on the front side of the device.
