The high-end smartphones in 2018 are likely to feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. The chip boasts new features to the upcoming devices thus ensuring great performance and improved efficiency. The main focus is on improving functionality with the new Secure Processing Unit (SPU).
Let us have a detailed look at few key features that comes in with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.
Secure Process Unit (SPU)
It is more secure with snapdragon 845. The new SPU keeps your information safer. The processor holds its own memory, microprocessor, a crypto engine, and random number generator. The SPU is the better way to store the biometric data, sensitive data, and payment details.
According to Choudhury, senior director of product management, "If code running on other parts of the platform is trying to attack or get information, the secure processing unit can essentially shut that off,"
Qualcomm 845 processor holds 4 Kryo 385 processor performance cores and 4 efficiency cores. Samsung will be making these Snapdragon chipsets. The chip supports quick charge 4.0 to ensure faster charging.
These performance cores may lift up the performance up to 30%. The devices with this upcoming chipset may load images or apps at a faster rate. The enhanced artificial intelligence technology provides the user with better voice-driven smart assistants.
Face Unlock feature
As in iPhone X, Snapdragon 845 Processor supports 3D face mapping technology. Qualcomm uses 50000 dots to map face and unlock.
Enhanced Battery Life
Another main upgrade with the new processor is high battery life. The improved performance ensures very low battery usage. According to Qualcomm, the battery life increases by 30 % when compared with Qualcomm 835.
The Adreno 630 processor offers great graphical performance and reduced power consumption. So we can expect the flagship smartphones with better battery life.
Improved mobile connectivity
The Qualcomm's new X20 LTE modem ensures enhanced mobile connectivity, especially while we using 5G in future. The X20 modem used offers a great improvement over the X16 modem in the 835 processor.
Qualcomm also provides better Wi-Fi connectivity. So, you need not wait for a long time to get Wi-Fi signals with Snapdragon 845. The network can be connected 16 times faster than before. With this speed, probably you can download a movie in less than three minutes.
New Spectra ISP
The chipset includes Qualcomm Spectra 280 image signal processor and Adreno 630 GPU. This is the first chipset to support 4K HDR videos. The ISP is designed to provide best videos and photos ever. The image quality will be the same even if the video or photo is captured in low light conditions.
Qualcomm 845 features Bluetooth 5.0 that ensures direct broadcast from device to speakers or wireless buds. It even guarantees 50 percent battery saving while using Bluetooth earbuds. The phone manufacturers may restrict the number of devices that can be connected but Qualcomm did not set any such upper limit.
