> Devices based on Snapdragon 820 are expected to be available in 1H 2016.
Not even 1Q 2016 which means SD820 based devices might start appearing only in April 2016, or even later, which is eight freaking months from now. Sigh.
I'm not an Apple fanboy but the A8X SoC has the fastest mobile CPU in terms of IPC (it's roughly 25% faster than Exynos 7420) and the A9 is just around the corner which means Apple will remain unchallenged for the time being.
Your wrong snapdragon 820 devices will be released towards end of this year going into 2016... Get ur facts right replace ur editor
