Qualcomm announces octa-core Kryo 280-based Snapdragon 835

Qualcomm at the ongoing CES 2017 in Las Vegas revealed more details of Snapdragon 835, its top-tier mobile processor. The chip maker says that Snapdragon 835 is the first commercial SoC to be manufactured using Samsung's 10nm FinFET process technology, allowing for better performance and power efficiency. 

As a result the overall size is 35 percent smaller than Snapdragon 820 and consumes 25 percent less power and packs more than three billion transistors. It is designed for use in premium high-tier smartphones, VR/AR headsets, mobile PCs, IP cameras, tablets and devices running variety of OS's like Android and Windows 10 with support for legacy Win32 apps.

The Snapdragon 835 chip is an octa-core processor with 4 x Kyro 280 custom CPU cores running at 2.45GHz, and four more energy efficient CPU cores clocked at 1.9GHz. It features Adreno 540 GPU, support for 4K video capture, integrated X16 LTE modem for Gigabit Class LTE connectivity, integrated 2x2 802.11ac Wave 2 WiFi, 802.11ad and Bluetooth 5. It also has Qualcomm's new Haven Security Platform supporting fingerprint, eye and face based biometrics with enhanced security for authentication and device attesation

The chip also comes with latest edition of fast charging technology called Quick Charge 4.0 and is compatible with USB Type-C charging standard. It is 20 percent faster than Quick Charge 3.0 and can offer five hours of usage just with a five minute charge.

The new chipset improves photography experience as well by including support for optical zoom, fast auto-focus technologies and HDR. The Qualcomm Spectra 180 camera ISP, featuring dual 14-bit ISPs will enable up to 32MP or dual 16MP cameras for  “ultimate photography and videography experience”.

Qualcomm says that the chip is designed to improve next-generation AR/VR experiences, with up to 25 percent increase in 3D graphics rendering and 60 times more colors. It also includes a motion tracking system the uses sensors to give you six degrees of freedom when interacting with virtual reality. There's also support for Google's Daydream platform.
