Qualcomm reveals full specs of Snapdragon 845

Qualcomm on the second day of its annual Snapdragon Technology summit in Hawaii has revealed full details of its next flagship processor, the Snapdragon 845, which will be faster than Snapdragon 835 chip. 

The Snapdragon 845 is said to be 30 percent more power efficient than Snapdragon 835 and comes with Adreno 630 GPU, which offers 30 percent improved graphics, video rendering and power reduction compared to the previous generation.

It uses Kyro 385 CPU with four cores handling powerful tasks, and the rest four are power-efficient cores to handle day-to-day activities. The four powerful cores are clocked at up to 2.8GHz and offers 25 percent better performance that Snapdragon 835's Kyro 280 CPU. The four power efficient cores are clocked at 1.8GHz, and promises 15 percent improved performance. The chipset  is manufactured using Samsung 10n FinFET process technology.

The chipset also houses a spectra 280 ISP (image signal processor), a Hexagon 685 DSP (digital signal processor), AQustic Audio, as well as Qualcomm's fastest model X20 Gigabit LTE radio.

The Spectra 280 ISP enables "Ultra HD premium capture", which means phone equipped with the chipset is capable of capturing 4K HDR videos at 60fps (frames per second) with support for up to 480fps slow-mo recording at 720p.

As for connectivity, the Snapdragon 845’s X20 LTE modem supports LTE Category 18 peak download speeds of 1.2 Gbps, Dual SIM-Dual VoLTE as well as 4×4 MIMO on up to 3 aggregated carriers. It has support for the latest Wi-Fi 802.11 ad.

For security, Snapdragon 845 supports fingerprint, iris, voice and face technology, while Qualcomm's new Aqstic audio codec promises to deliver improved wake-word recognition, as well as improved playback and record features. The chipset also support Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4+ technology, that is 30 percent more power efficient and can charge up to 15 percent faster than Quick Charge 4
