We have written about the gadgets to expect in 2017. But one of the most exciting pieces of technology coming in 2017 is not a gadget. Rather, it is what is going to power most of the gadgets we wrote about -Snapdragon 835 chip. Ahead of CES 2017, a leaked blog post posted by the famous tipster Evan Blass, explains what all we can expect from the processor that will power the next generation of smartphone flagships. Qualcomm Technologies collaborated with Samsung Electronics to use its revolutionary 10nm FinFET process to create the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. It has the potential to revolutionize the mobile tech due to its sheer small size. Here is what we can expect in the next generation devices running the Snapdragon 835.
More power efficiency
Qualcomm claims the new processor will only consume 40% less power compared to the previous versions: the Snapdragon 820 and 821. The 835 accomplish this by using a combination of multiples CPU and GPY to manage separate workloads with all of them tightly integrated with Qualcomm Symphony System Manager. Qualcomm claims 1+ day of talk time, 5+ days of music playback and 7+ hours of 4K video streaming.Additionally, Qualcomm Quick Charge 4 provides five hours of battery life for five minutes of charging as well.
Immersive AR and VR
Snapdragon 835 is optimized to provide better Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality experiences. Snapdragon 835 is expected to offer 25 percent faster 3D graphic rendering and 60X more display colors when compared to Snapdragon 820 and supports scene- and object-based audio and audiophile-grade DSD audio to generate real life like sounds.
Improved camera capabilities
The 835 is designed to improve zoom and image stabilization for mobile photography. Qualcomm’s new video generation software is expected to provide more stabilization for 4K videos as well. Improved faster and more accurate auto-focus will be another major addition.
Snapdragon 835 has integrated Snapdragon X16 LTE modem and customized support for 802.11ad Wi-Fi which provides faster connectivity. Qualcomm claims the new chip will support peak download speeds up to 10X faster than first-generation 4G LTE devices.
