Good news Power users, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 is finally here. A 10nm chip that offers 5G Connection speeds, WiFi ad, Snapdragon VR and AR.
Here are some key backgrounds of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
Breaks the 10nm Architecture
Snapdragon VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality
Supports 5G Internet speeds (10x faster than 4G)
Wireless 802.11ad (4.6Gbps with very low latency)
Quick Charge 4.0 (boosts battery up to 5 hours)
Advance Security (Retinal Based Authentication)
4K Ultra HD Ready
6 degrees of Freedom (about the Augmented Reality and VR experience)
Snapdragon Navigator (for Drones)
What is the chipset?
It is a 64 bit Kyro 280 Chip and the first to breach the 10nm Architecture. It has a burst speed of up to 2.45GHz. Adreno 540 GPU also offers up to 25% faster rendering speeds compared to the Adreno 530, and 60x more color production and better images. It also uses UFS 3.1 (Universal Storage) and Dual Channel LPDDR4 Memory speeds up to 1866MHz.
What is Snapdragon VR or AR?
Utilizes the new Adreno 540 GPU, said to be 25% faster in graphics rendering with 360 degree field of view (6 degrees of freedom). It is also 4K Ultra HD ready and up to 60x more color resolution. Alongside VR is Qualcomm Aqstic Audio, which hopes to deliver positional 3D audio and better noise cancellation.
6 Degrees of Freedom (6-DOF)?
Visual intertial Idometry with accurate position and orientation and offers 20% less latency and to deliver a much immersive VR Experience.
Camera: 14 bit Qualcomm Spectral 180 ISP
Optical Zoom will soon be a feature on most devices. EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) also will become a mainstream on most cameras. The chipset will support up to 16 MP on Dual Cameras (Rear), and 32 MP on single Camera. HDR Video Recording will also be available, Clear Sight and Hybrid Dual Pixel Phase Detection Autofocus.
What is offered by 5G and WiFi?
Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 LTE Modem delivers ultra fast Internet Speeds up to 5G. It will also allow 360 degree VR experience. 1 Gbps download speeds and 150 Mbps Upload speeds. It will also offer WiFi 802.11ad with MU-MIMO for Fiber Optic Speeds.
Qualcomms Haven’s Security suite offers Full Biometric protection, such as Fingerprint, Voice, Iris (Retina), Facial Recognition. It also includes
It supports Quick Charge 4.0, which promises even faster charging time. Qualcomm Hexagon DSP also improves performance and Battery life.
