Snapdragon 845 Announced: 25% Faster CPU, 30% Faster Graphics, 4K HDR Recording

In News
At the
Snapdragon Technology Summit, Qualcomm announced their new
top-of-the-line SoC Snapdragon 845.

The company says that the new Snapdragon is around 25% faster
than its predecessors with the help of the octa-core Kryo 385
CPU clocked at 2.80GHz.

The chip, based on ARM Cortex, is built using Samsung’s 2nd Gen
10nm LPP fabrication process and supports LPDDR4X memory up to
8GB. Four out of eight cores are optimized for performance and
the other four for efficiency. Adreno 630 GPU onboard improves
the graphics performance by up to 30%.

For camera enthusiasts, Snapdragon 845-powered devices can
shoot 4K HDR videos at 60 fps, while the frame rate for 1080p
videos can go up to 240 fps. It can go up to 480 fps for slow
motion 720 videos.

Talking about the on-device AI, Qualcomm’s Hexagon 685 DSP
co-processor is present on Snapdragon 845 to handle AI user
experiences for camera, voice, gaming, and other stuff. The
co-processor would be able to leverage the Neural Networks API
Google recently brought to Android 8.1 Oreo.

The wireless department includes their new X20 LTE modem which
delivers around 1.2Gbps as the peak download speed. It’s 20%
more speed than the X16 modem.

Snapdragon 845 cuts down on overall power consumption and also
adds the benefit of Quick Charge 4+, which can juice up a
battery from zero to around 50% in 15 minutes.

Further, there is support for WiFi 802.11 ac and the
multi-gigabit WiFiad which works with the 60Ghz band. Support
for Bluetooth 5 will enable
Snapdragon 845-powered devices to stream audio to multiple
devices simultaneously. It is also compatible with a number of
satellite-based navigation systems, including GPS, GLONASS,
Beidou, Galileo, QZSS, SBAS.

We can expect the devices running Snapdragon 845 by Q1 2018.
