Top Snapdragon 820 features
Qualcomm has launch the Snapdragon 820, its latest high-end smartphone processor and its most high performance chip ever. Here are top snapdragon 820 features that should be known.
1. 4K Display at Amazing quality
This isn’t the first Snapdragon chip to support 4K displays, but Qualcomm has continued its work to improve clarity and reduce any hint of lag in the system for a seamless experience. The number of pixels is important, but it’s also the quality of what’s displayed and the 820 allows for more realistic colour, lighting and shadows. You will experience amazing pictures quality in 820 then ever.
2. 3D Audio
The Snapdragon 820 boasts 3D Audio, which gives the effect of surround sound through a set of headphones – even the rubbish ones included in the box of your shiny new smartphone. It also allows you to record 3D Audio, giving your home movies a new dimension – plus there’s an option to direction-ally record audio, allowing you to cut out annoying background noise. People are very passionate about music so this is something which all going to like.
3. Imaging Quality
Another core area of our smartphones is the camera, and the Snapdragon 820 has a few tricks up its sleeve to help you get the most out of your phone’s snapper. It uses Heterogeneous Signal Processing, which unlike HDR which stitches two images together, it works round the image block by block to produce a more natural result. Qualcomm says you’ll be able to capture images which directly mirror what your eyes see. Your phone will also know what you’re taking a picture of, down to the person or type of food. This processing is all done on the phone – there’s no need for a data connection or cloud access, and it keeps your data private.
4. Downloading Speed
The Snapdragon 820 packs in Qualcomm’s new X12 LTE Modem, which is capable of theoretical download speeds of up to a whopping 600Mbps, while uploads can max out at 150Mbps. That means when it comes to downloading apps, streaming video or merely surfing the web, everything will load almost instantly. These speeds will depend on your network and the service it offers, but you can be safe in the knowledge a handset with the Snapdragon 820 will be future proofed for several years.
5. Immersive VR
Combine the 4K screen technology, 3D Audio and powerful new Kyro CPU and Adreno GPU and the Snapdragon 820 has all the components for a properly immersive VR (virtual reality) experience on your smartphone. The screen can display incredibly lifelike renders, the surround sound audio pulls you in and the grunt of the processors ensures there’s no lag from the sensors as you move your head around the virtual world. Combine a smartphone sporting a Snapdragon 820 chip with a headset such as the Samsung Gear VR and you can be transported into a new level of virtual reality
6. Battery Life
Will you get better battery life from the Snapdragon 820? “Absolutely” was the answer from Qualcomm, with the chip 30% more efficient than its predecessor. Efficiencies have been made in all the core areas of the chip, with the CPU, GPU, DSP and Modem all boasting improved performance over past offerings. And yes, its also depends upon the manufacturer that how they implement the device by using this chip. Snapdragon 820 also supports quick charge which will be very helpful for charging the device.
7. More cooler handset
8. Better Experience in Photography
Low light photography is a pain point for most smartphone cameras, due to the limitations in sensor and lens size. You can’t have the same lens and sensor as a DSLR on your smartphone – it’s simply too big. With Snapdragon 820, Qualcomm has looked to address this with software enhancements, reducing noise and increasing detail in low light shots.
The Snapdragon 820 can automatically detect threats from rogue applications before they’ve even had a chance to infect your handset. It uses what Qualcomm is calling Smart Protect, which scans through all the applications on your device and flags any which it deems may pose threat. It can provide information on the type of malware it thinks it is, as well details on what it is trying to do. You can then use Smart Protect to remove the application safely. Some apps may appear to be uninstalled, but reside secretly in the background. These spyware applications can gather various amounts of information, such as your location, with you knowing – but Smart Protect can alert you to this too, and get it removed completely from your device.
