Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 was one of the most controversial processor regarding the heating up issue. But still, Snapdragon 820 is the most awaited processor, finally the beast is unveiled officially
As the first commercial processor to utilize LTE-U, Snapdragon 820 can access LTE connections in both licensed spectrum and unlicensed spectrum — boosting your connection speeds and mobile broadband access in normally congested areas.
The Snapdragon 820 processor fundamentally changes the way Wi-Fi works with your phone by supporting both 802.11ad and 802.11ac 2×2 MU-MIMO — which allows Wi-Fi to be up to 2x or 3x faster than 802.11ac without MU-MIMO.
Supporting LTE Category 12 download speeds of up to 600 Mbps, and LTE Category 13 uplink speeds of up to 150 Mbps, the Snapdragon 820 processor with X12 LTE supports 33% faster peak download speeds, and triple the peak upload speeds of Snapdragon 810 processor with X10 LTE.
first custom-designed 64-bit quad-core CPU, the Kyro CPU uses Qualcomm® Symphony System Manager as an intelligent resource management tool for Snapdragon that extends control of task scheduling and power management across the entire processor.
With Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 3.0, users can spend less time charging and more time doing. As our fastest and most efficient charging technology yet, Quick Charge 3.0 is 4x faster than conventional charging and 38% more efficient than Quick Charge 2.0.
Significant improvement to the Hexagon 680 DSP enables the CPU to offload more tasks for fast processor using less power. The Hexagon 680 DSP also allows for “always-on” low power-sensors and ultra-low power advanced imaging.
Adreno 530 in the Snapdragon 820 processor is designed to create photorealistic computer generated graphics, while delivering up to 40% improvement to graphics performance and compute capabilities when compared to the Adreno 430.
The Snapdragon 820 harnesses the newest innovations in mobile photography to redefine today’s camera capabilities. Supported by the latest 14-bit image sensors, hybrid autofocus and multi-sensor fusion algorithms, the Spectra camera ISP captures a wider range of colors and supports computational photography. Plus, the Snapdragon 820 also has Hexagon 680 with HVX (Hexagon Vector eXtensions), which supports advanced imaging and computer vision.
What makes Snapdragon 820 the Most advanced and fastest processor –
- X12 LTE offers 3x faster peak upload speeds and 33% faster peak download speeds compared to those of X10 LTE.
- The new Qualcomm® Kryo™ CPU has 2x performance and efficiency when compared to the CPU of Snapdragon 810.
- The new Qualcomm® Hexagon™ 680 DSP also brings significant improvement to performance and battery life.
- The Qualcomm® Adreno™ 530 GPU offers 40% improvement to graphics performance, compute capabilities, and power usage when compared to Adreno 430.
- 14-bit Qualcomm® Spectra™ camera Image Signal Processor (ISP) supports the capture of up to 28 megapixels.
