    You have a very tiny typo!

    "Qualcomm is shipping a higher clocked variant of the MSM8974/Snapdragon 800 called the Snapdragon 801 (MSM8794AC)"

    I believe it should read 8974AC, not 8794AC :)

    This makes more sense. It would have seemed weird for the 805 to be out just yet (I don't think it is anywhere?) but the 800 has already been around for a while. This could show up in the S5, perhaps?

    Is the power draw the same as the 800? Reply

    Close enough to be negligible. Reply

    8974AB and 8974AC are called 8974Pro in source codes (normal s800s are called 8974v2), and the 8974Pro series have two versions: 8974Pro rev0 and 8974ProC rev1. The latter one has 16 PVS binnings with 0.1v difference between each binning's max cpu freq while the former one has 8 binnings with 0.25v difference between each binning's max cpu freq. Also all shipped 8974ABs' GPU max freq is 578mhz instead of 550mhz. I think the snapdragon 801 represents the revised 8974Pro series. Reply

    I don't work for Qualcomm. Everyone can see those things in N9005 KitKat kernel source codes. Reply

    The last sentence is missing a word. Also I'm curious, how long has qualcomm been using the same cpu architecture and bumbing its clocks for now? Reply

    801 looks good. the DS-DA is very important. I live in the Sonora Desert... as in Sonora, Mexico and Arizona, USA. I conduct business in both countries, therefore have two pone numbers. I'm always doing the SIM swapping thing at the Nogales SON/AZ border crossing.

    Having both chips in the same phone would be glorious! No missed calls either (roaming chargers are worth it as I'd rather not miss a call!).

    Adopting the EmmC 5.0 interface is good as well.

    Nokia has announced that the 1520 will be available with 32GB of Storage son (plus the microSD). I wonder if they've been waiting for the new interface to make that change? Will we see the 801/805 in an upcoming rework of the 1520?

    Dual Simm capable phone 1520 would be incredible. Microsoft is going to be supporting Dual Simm capability with Windows Phone 8.1 soon.

    Right now enjoying life with the 920.. The S4 (performance wise between the 400 and 600) is a decent performer.

    Regarding the MSM8794AB. Yesterday, Sony announced the Xperia Z2. They said it contains a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801. I'm reading all over the place that the MSM8794AB is actually a Snapdragon 801. So which is right? Is Sony lying about saying the Z2 contains an 801, or is the MSM8794AB actually an 801? Reply

    Sony Xperia Z2's SoC is an 801. A variation of 801, different from the 801 inside the Samsung Galaxy S5. http://www.qualcomm.com/snapdragon/smartphones/son... Reply

    In that case, the article above has a typo as the MSM8974AB is listed as a Snapdragon 800. Reply
