The latest chipset offers great improvements as Qualcomm make a big take on Augmented and Virtual Reality with the Snapdragon 845. The Adreno 630 supports displays of up to 2K x 2K with a resolution of up to 120 Hz for a crisp and fluid display.

Foveated rendering, which lessen rendering requirements by reducing the resolution in your peripheral visualization, is now supported via Adreno foveation. It supports tile rendering, eye tracking, multiView rendering and fine grain preemption. The Snapdragon 845 is the first platform to facilitate room-scale 6 degrees of freedom (6DoF) of movement along with simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) capabilities which can enable features such as wall-collision detection.

Optimized for AI

Qualcomm has confirmed that the Snapdragon 845 doesn’t have integrated AI processor, something that Apple and Huawei are incorporating in recent times. Instead, Qualcomm is refining the algorithms two times better to power up the machine learning applications. With this incorporation, the Snapdragon 845 gets a 3x increase in AI operations as compared to the Snapdragon 835.

With a combination of CPU and GPU improvements the Snapdragon 845 also comprise a 3rd Gen Vector DSP with HVX known as the Hexagon 685 to optimize the AI and imaging workloads.

Qualcomm also confirms the presence of its onboard Aqstic audio codec, in this case the WCD9341. This component offers low power monitoring for keyword detection and processing to help power virtual assistants. It also boasts 130 dB of dynamic range, -109 dB THD+N, and supports 32-bit / 384 kHz PCM and DSD64/128 music playback support for audiophiles.

The Snapdragon 845 is also yet further handy for developers keen to get their machine learning applications up and running on the platform. The Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine SDK now supports TensorFlow Lite and the Open Neural Network Exchange, in accumulation of the stock TensorFlow and Facebook’s Caffe/Caffe2. The Snapdragon 845 also supports Google’s Android Nueral Networks API for use with Android 8.1.

Best for Multimedia

For the multimedia, Qualcomm’s latest Spectra image signal processor is totally rebuilt and upgraded from the ground up. The new Spectra 280 ISP introduces several new video capture options including 480 FPS slow motion 720p video, 60 fps video recording at up to 16 megapixels of resolution, and capable to capture 64x more high-dynamic range (HDR) color information.

The component can also handle power efficient multi-frame noise reduction, accelerated software image stabilization, and motion compensated temporal filtering, compared to others, helps to take the load of the CPU. 10-bit HDR support remains in place, complete with support for the Rec. 2020 gamut for 4K/Ultra HD content that pops off the screen.

 

To help download and share high quality content, the Snapdragon 845 possesses an improved Wi-Fi modem and the company’s X20 LTE modem for faster speeds than the gigabit. The X20 LTE modem is Category 18 LTE compliant and offers up to 1.2 Gbps downloads and 150 Mbps uploads rate. The modem also supports License Assisted Access (LAA) for unlicensed spectrum, 5x carrier aggregation, 4×4 MIMO on up to 3 carriers, and dual SIM-dual VoLTE. For the WiFi, there’s diversity-enhanced 60 GHz 802.11ad Wi-Fi for extra strong multi-gigabit exposure at speeds up to 4.6 Gbps. There’s also integrated 802.11ac Wi-Fi with advanced features that provide up to a 16x faster connection setup, simultaneous dual-band support, and 30 percent more capacity utilization. Now, downloading and uploading content shouldn’t be a headache for users.
