Smart Shift details of smartphones with Snapdragon 855 – Tech World


Details of the quality change of smartphones with Snapdragon 855

In a previous article yesterday, we talked about Qualcomm's version of Snapdragon 855, but we did not announce much of the details as it was unveiled, but now it has explained enough on the chip and its processors to be introduced in the smartphone world to be launched in 2019. The company focused on connectivity, artificial intelligence and the power to run games and entertainment.

The company claims its chip will carry an X24 connection modem capable of transmitting data up to 2 gigabytes per second with Cat.20 based LTE, which means it will be the fastest in the world in this area and, of course, the modem differs from the X50 to the fifth generation 5G, he said the company said the fifth generation modem will be in the Snapdragon 855 due to the desire of manufacturers to provide technology or not in their phones, and this will make the connection much faster also, the X50 will allow the phones to support the mmWave "mmWave" short and long to connect to 6 Giga Hertz to take full advantage of the fifth generation technologies.

On the same side, the company said the chip will support Wi-Fi 6 technology is the fastest and most recent technology that will appear for the first time on smartphones thanks to them, and will provide the ability to transfer data up to 10 Gbps.

On the other hand, chip-based phones will provide 20% better graphics performance than ever before with the Adreno 640 processor. The Kryo 485 processor will improve performance by 45% compared to the previous one with eight internal core chips. A core, three cores to accelerate performance and four cores to increase efficiency, which makes the processor the fastest ever, according to the company. Qualcomm has also added to its chip the Hexagon processor for artificial intelligence technologies.

Artificial intelligence

Qualcomm says the three processors in its chips will work together to improve the techniques and results of artificial intelligence on smart phones to form the fourth generation of artificial intelligence technologies. The company talked about working with Google on the TensorFlow platform to improve the results of the phones. The Google Lens platform for an improved reality will benefit from the direct definition of the device on the images while being captured without having to be scanned using the network directly through the Snapdragon chip .

Not only will images and improved reality techniques be recognized, but written and written texts will be directly recognized. Moreover, the chip will offer great possibilities for virtual reality technologies and tricks like adding objects to the place.

Qualcomm is not only this, it will provide an advantage to isolate the person's voice in calls to separate it or make it more audible through intelligence techniques in the chip. As well as the ability of processors to isolate images taken or downloaded from the Internet by blurring on the rest of the part of any image.

Qualcomm announced at its conference a partnership with Nalbi, specialized in artificial intelligence, with which it collaborated to improve its technology to provide multiple options for the user. For example, the company has developed a technology that allows the use of artificial intelligence and reality techniques to shoot and change hair color in real time, Done really


The camera is a fundamental part of artificial intelligence, especially for smartphones, which Qualcomm has used with Snapdragon 855, equipped with a central vision processor to exploit the different technologies of reality, portrait and isolation modes and the presence of Spectra 380 ISP, In addition to its ability to reduce energy consumption 2-4 times more than before.

The company offers a great deal of camera technology, as it is able to directly identify 60 frames per second on images as a portrait and separate them directly without the need for reprocessing, which is similar during HDR or 4K resolution, in so that the isolation of the blur or part directly selected during the shoot, so that the chip can help the cameras to change the background directly during filming, which announces a new era like "Chroma" on editing programs to change the video background.

For example, the company announced the adoption of HEIF images in place of JEPG, because the new extension is better for high resolution images and details such as HDR, making three-camera phones, for example, taking photographs from each target and save them in a single file within the HEIF extension, the phones will be able to manage the same image from each camera and merge them into one, but with Qualcomm's support for that function, the phones Android will be able to draw more from it.


Anyone reading the article expects to talk about a faster and higher efficiency than the previous one, but with Snapdragon 855 it will be more than that. Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon Elite gaming platform for the chip to improve the gaming environment and bring new features to the phones.

The Vulkan 1.1 software interface, a three-dimensional image library, is a technology that offers high performance in the game, but with less pressure, making game developers make the most of smartphones to support their games.

As the chip will deliver 20% faster performance than before, it will be a competition for OpenGL ES software, and performance will increase for HDR support, providing up to 10-bit chip support for the first time.

Qualcomm will be able to make the most of its HDR10 + and Dolby Vision technology to provide greater depth and clarity, make the games more vivid and the chip's ability to deliver up to 120 frames per second 360 panoramic photography for videos with resolution up to 8K for use in VR techniques.

Snapdragon 855 saves energy up to 7 times more than in the past, thanks to the H.265 and VP9 technologies.


The wait was mainly for Qualcomm's 5G generation, data transfer speed or even faster processing, but the company was able to offer many technologies for the first time, making it smarter to rely on smartphones, both for the camera that for the technology you provided for video or images, in games, or even in many artificial intelligence techniques.
