I think I fell for the marketing BS they pushed out. Perhaps the LTE is a newer process. Seems this is all not adding up.
Snap 800 is also manufactured on 28nm process according to Wiki and TSMC site. But it's on the newer process node called HPm allowing for higher clock speed at the same power level.
So I don't think battery life on snap 800 will crush snap 600 though it will be faster with better CPU/GPU, higher clock.
