With many upcoming phones preparing to feature the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Qualcomm has officially launched the Snapdragon 835. The new Qualcomm chip will be used in many flagship android devices this year and users can expect a 20% jump in various CPU tasks, increased energy efficiency, and support for Quick Charge 4.0. Say hello to the Qualcomm snapdragon 835.
According to 5to9google, the chip which was manufactured on the10nm process will result in 25% less power usage over the 820 and 50% energy decrease compared to a three-year old 801. This means that it can hold one day of talk time, over five days of music playback, or over seven hours of 4K video streaming.
See the complete specs of the Snapdragon 835
- Support for Quick Charge 4.0which will provide 5 hours’ worth of power from a 5 minute plug-in.
- Compliant with USB-C and USB Power Delivery, version 4.0 promises 20% faster charging while maintaining 5°C cooler temperatures.
- an octa-core Kryo 280 that uses a big.LITTLE architecture for a 20% performance boost in app load times, web browsing, and VR.
- Four high performance cores clock at up to 2.45GHz, while the rest of the cores (up to 1.9GHz) make up an “Efficiency Cluster” where 80% of processing time will take place.
An Adreno 540 with support for 4K@60fps displays with 25% faster graphics rendering from last year’s chip. The Hexagon 690 DSP responsible for digital signal processing supports Google TensorFlow, allowing for on-device machine learnings tasks, like object and voice recognition, hand tracking, and biometric authentication.
The rest of the specs are integrated Snapdragon X16 LTE modem and enhanced camera processing. Connectivity-wise, there is support for 4X carrier aggregation, 4×4 MIMO, Bluetooth 5.0, and 802.11ad Wi-Fi, while various other advancements combine for smoother zoom, better auto-focus, and video stabilization.
Now that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 has been launched, it’s a matter of months that flagship devices will feature the chipset- which many has described as one of the most powerful chips for 2017.
