World’s undisputed king when it comes to mobile processing, Qualcomm has announced its next-gen mobile platform, the Snapdragon 845 on the day two of the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit 2017.

The Snapdragon 845 is the successor of 2017’s very successful Snapdragon 835 which has so far powered every Android flagship launched this year. Xiaomi is the first to announce a Snapdragon 845 powered smartphone – the Mi 7, while flagships from other manufacturers like Samsung and LG can also be expected to be powered by the SD845. Other than that, Windows 10 laptops based on ARM architecture are also expected to be powered by the new SoC.

The new processor will feature 8 cores and is based on the Qualcomm’s custom Kryo 385 architecture that is expected to be 25 percent faster than the SD835. To power the graphic department is the new Adreno 630 GPU that also includes the Qualcomm’s Spectra 280 image signal processor.

The newest and one of the main focus was the addition of on-device artificial intelligence (AI) functionality and Extended Reality (XR). Qualcomm’s first stride in the AI functionality for mobile devices was with the Snapdragon 820 so the hopes are high with this one.

Qualcomm highlighted 5 key areas during the announcement

Immersion, AI, Security, Connection and Performance


Immersion

This department is handled by the Adreno 630 GPU and the integrated Qualcomm

Spectra 280 Image Signal Processor(ISP). The ISP allows the chip to capture 64 time better high-dynamic range colour information for better video recording and playback on 4K compared to its predecessor. It also provides a massive boost in color information, including 10-bit colour depth for over one billion shades of colors that can be previewed to the Rec.2020 gamut.

Other than that, the GPU is also said to support Extended Reality (XR) that is a combination of virtual, augmented and mixed reality in addition to general visual processing. The Snapdragon 845 is also proclaimed to be the first chip to support room-scale six degrees of freedom (6DoF) with simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) to enable a better virtual reality (VR) experience.
