Snapdragon 865 :
The world is all gearing up for 5G connectivity, and thanks to Qualcomm, we just got a taste of 5G’s next-gen performance as it launched its 2 next-gen mobile-platforms Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 765 on 03/12/2019 in a grand event in Mavi, Hawaii.
These are the most powerful chipsets especially Snapdragon 865 is in a whole new level of super performance for an Android smartphone.
What makes Snapdragon 865 so cool…?
It’s a 5th gen AI-powered super processor capable of 15 trillion operations per second (TOPS), which is twice its predecessor.
‘865’ supports image processing that’s less than a milliwatt, offers best-in-class connectivity, best power performance with the best AI system on-board and extreme gaming experience.
It comes with an improved state of Android security. This will be the 1st mobile SOC to support Android identity credential APIs which means the mobile Driver’s Licence and electronic ID will be possible with Android R.
Advanced AI technology enables the mind-blowing speech to text feature, this means the user can call anyone on the planet regardless of what language they speak and have a conversation with them seamlessly.
It supports global roaming and global multi-SIM, so you don’t have to keep changing your SIM cards while traveling.
If you are still curious about its super cool features, there’s still a lot more in detail, check it out…
Processor features in detail :
Snapdragon 865 will be the CPU and GPU of the device as it is the latest 7 anumita processor that comes with the all-new ‘Kryo’ 585 CPU system that provides 25% faster performance than its predecessor.
It’s an Octa-core CPU with high-efficiency Cortex A55 cores, that’s clocked at 1.8 GHz and 3 high-performance Cortex A77 cores with 2.4 GHz speed and a prime ‘A77’ core at 2.8 GHz, these are pretty much the same in Snapdragon 855. But the only thing that sets ‘865’ apart is it’s brand new ‘Kryo’ 585 CPU with new Cortex A77 that sets ‘865’ in a whole new level.
Gaming experience :
The gaming experience gets extremely cool with the new ‘Adreno 650’ GPU that provides up to 25% higher performance boost with its most powerful graphics core.
This is the first to support QHD+ 144 hertz PC level display quality on a smartphone. At present, the max quality of the best gaming devices like Asus Rog 2 and Google Pixel 4 is 120 Hz display for a seamless and bloat-free gaming experience.
And with ‘Snapdragon 865’, the experience just intensifies with Ultra High definition graphics and UI. Qualcomm is working to make its updates available on the ‘Playstore’.
The world is preparing to embrace the speed of 5G. And Snapdragon 865 will be the bridge for Android smartphones to provide the 5G experience to the world.
With “Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 Modem-RF System” that is the 2nd gen 5G Modem with integrated multi-mode support capacity for a smooth and seamless global 5G connectivity.
The most intriguing feature is that it supports all frequency bands, be it a millimeter-wave ‘Sub 60’ for 5G (or) NSA modes. The new X55 Modem can achieve the max download speed of a whopping 7.5 Gbps on 5G.
Not even the Wi-Fi Saks on a present ’65’ can match this intense speed. The Modem also works for 4G, 3G, and even 2G networks, so there’s no problem in any way as it supports all formats.
Camera performance :
The performance of the camera will be significantly increased with this powerful processor as it comes with the Spectra 480 ISP that has Gigapixel speed technology.
This helps capture the moment at a speed of up to 2 Gigapixels per second, it’s that powerful.
It supports 200 MP camera and astonishingly 8K at 30fps video recording. This is an insane challenge to DSLRs where some Digital SLRs don’t even reach 8K. The 480 isp also lets the user capture 64 MP shots while recording 4K videos simultaneously without any lag.
This processor is made to go further with the ability to shoot slow-motion videos at 960fps at 720p without any time limit and has the capacity to stream Dolby Vision HDR videos for an experience like never before.
Advanced AI :
The Snapdragon 865 comes with the most powerful AI of all time on Android smartphones. It is equipped with the 5th gen AI engine with the brand-new “Qualcomm Hexagon” Tensor Accelerator that can perform 15 TOPS (trillion operations per second) which is twice faster and more powerful than its predecessor.
The AI has the ability to transcribe the user’s voice into text flawlessly and can enhance audio capacity with the new Qualcomm sensing hub. It’s a more sensitive and accurate voice detector that amplifies the contextual support.
Fingerprint scanner :
The processor is built to support the 3D sonic max fingerprint sensor. It’s super-fast when compared to the current on-display fingerprint scanners as it has a bigger footprint space, but what sets it apart is that it has 2 fingerprint support systems for an improved state of Android security and can also measure the heart rate.
One of the main purposes of this chipset is efficiency. And with its “Quick Charge” technology, the processor is 25% more efficient with minimal and careful usage of the battery power by monitoring it smartly.
Rumored flagship phones supported by Snapdragon 865 in 2020 :
> Asus Rog Phone 3
> Google Pixel 5 and Pixel 5 XL
> Asus Zenfone 7
> Samsung Galaxy S11, S11+, and S11e
