American chip manufacturer Qualcomm has unveiled its newest mobile platform Snapdragon 835 processor with X16 LTE modem, which will provide users with high performance and enhanced power efficiency.
The Snapdragon 835 has been enabled to support next-generation entertainment experiences and connected Cloud services for premium consumer and enterprise devices, including smartphones, VR/AR head-mounted displays, IP cameras, tablets, mobile PCs and other devices running a variety of operating systems.
The Snapdragon 835 features Kryo 280 CPU with four performance cores running at up to 2.45 GHz and four efficiency cores running up to 1.9GHz. It also includes hardware-based user authentication, device security for use cases such as mobile payments, enterprise access and users' personal data.
The processor integrates the new Adreno 540 GPU and Qualcomm Spectra 180 image sensor processor (ISP) for next-generation camera capabilities.
The mobile platform is 35 per cent smaller in package size and consumes 25 per cent less power compared to the previous generation flagship processor, which equates to longer battery life and thinner designs.
