Qualcomm today announced the Snapdragon 835, its premiere processor for 2017. Qualcomm says the chip is smaller, faster, and more efficient than any previous processor from the company. The system-on-a-chip relies on the company's 10nm process, which allows the chip to be 30% smaller than the Snapdragon 820 and use 40% less power. Qualcomm says this helps the 835 perform, on average, 27% better than the Snapdragon 820 in terms of efficiency. The processor is paired with the Qualcomm Kryo 280 CPU, Qualcomm Adreno 540 GPU, Qualcomm Hexagon DSP, Qualcomm Spectra 180 ISP, and the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem. Some of the capabilities include virtual reality, augmented reality, lower thermals, and Quick Charge 4.0. Qualcomm says the chip can deliver more than a day of talk time, more than 5 days of music playback, and more than 7 hours of 4K video streaming. Quick Charge 4.0 can provide up to 5 hours of battery life in just 5 minutes of charging. The chip can handle EIS for 4K video capture. The Snapdragon X16 LTE modem and customized support for 802.11ad Wi-Fi include 4x4 MIMO, 256-QAM digital signal processing, and up to 4X carrier aggregation for optimized speeds. Qualcomm says its new Qualcomm Haven Security Platform provides three layers of security on the SoC itself, device, and operating system, including biometrics, such as fingerprint readers and iris scanners. The Snapdragon 835 supports Qualcomm’s machine learning platform for object recognition and real-time hand tracking via the camera for better VR/AR. Lastly, the chip can run an always-on, low-power virtual assistant. Qualcomm expects to see the Snapdragon 835 in devices during the first half of 2017.
