In today’s innovative world is it any more surprising that today’s technology is to become obsolete the very next day? That’s what the arrival of Snapdragon 810 chip just did. After arriving in the stores in the early 2015 it shook the foundations of the innovative smartphone world. Today Qualcomm Snapdragon processors power Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry and almost anything that is not an iPhone.
The experience a Smartphone provides is very intricately connected to the processor it carries. Except for a few little graphical interfaces that are controlled by the GPU almost every aspect of a Smartphone including apps, push notifications and even every pixel is controlled by the CPU. And the Snapdragon 810 will take things to a whole new level in 2015. The company Qualcomm already demonstrated some of the absolute magic that the Snapdragon 810 will be able to achieve in the Smartphone market in the early and late 2015. Some of them are already in action and some are waiting behind the curtain ready to be unveiled.
Here are the top 5 reasons Snapdragon 810 will rock the house in 2015:
Although many Smartphones such as LG G3 has quad HD (2,560 x 1,440) displays which is to be honest more than enough, the phones with a Snapdragon 810 will be able to stream a 4K video (4,096 x 2,160) to a TV with just a few taps. All you are going to need is TV or dongle capable of receiving it. And how to get a 4k video? The answer is simple. Many of the devices today are fitted with a camera capable of producing 4k pictures. And the company estimates that 500 million devices will be 4k capable by the year 2018.
Better than DSLR
There is a new kind of camera arriving in the markets that are made by the Core Photonics. The specialty of these cameras is that it can snap a picture at two distinct levels with two different cameras. One that is an imager and the other is fitted with a fixed telephoto that can magnify the image for about 3x. And the Snapdragon 810 can bring it to action. Using the amazing computing powers the phone can combine the pictures taken by the two cameras and produce a picture with the intricate quality better than a DSLR. A few demonstrations showed that even the smallest of details could be clearly understood in a picture taken by such a camera which is far better than anything standard.
A most frustrating factor in the video cameras of the current generation’s smartphones is the audio quality. No matter how good it might be in a studio or home setting, if the situation is a little crowded the quality goes down by a mile. To improve things the new devices fitted with a Snapdragon 810 will be able to process the audio in such a way that it captures sound coming from only one specific direction. So just like the camera is able to recognize faces it will be able to recognize voice directions too. If you want you can record someone’s voice and ignore the ambience as you need.
Powering a Workstation
With such amazing computing powers a smartphone with a Snapdragon 810 can serve as a pc workstation. It can be connected wirelessly to any workstations with a keyboard and a mouse. With a small device called the 802.11ad (aka WiGig) any smartphone and tablet can power a workstation where you can do your important stuff.
Next Level Gaming
Needless to say a device with such amazing computing powers will excel at gaming indeed. While the android devices had a hard time becoming fully-fledged game platforms, the next year’s devices are all looking absolutely amazing for gaming. They will be able to be connected to the external monitor wirelessly and along with fabulous 4k video it can provide a gaming experience yet unreached any other mobile devices.
