André has already promised and here they are: the detailed specifications of Qualcomm's new SoC Snapdragon 845, which the company is exhibiting at Qualcomm Tech Summit officially launched in Hawaii. The Snapdragon 845 is again based on the 10-nanometer process and relies on the LTE modem X20, which also features the Snapdragon 835. The new Adreno 630 GPU is expected to provide up to 30 percent faster graphics performance than the GPU of the previous chipset. And we must not forget: the whole thing is not just for smartphones, because even mobile computers with Qualcomm Snapdragon will encounter us more frequently in 2018.
As you can see, Qualcomm has been neatly screwed around to create a powerful generation. If you look at the extra power, you have to keep in mind that the challenges and requirements for a device with such a SoC can increase.
You just have to fly over fast: The X20 modem provides for faster connections under ideal conditions, Bluetooth headphones should consume even less energy and fans of video get pretty good options with 4K recordings at 60 fps, or 1080p 240 frames. If a Snapdragon 845 is plugged into a smartphone, cameras up to 16 megapixels are supported for dual-cam mode, while single cameras are supported for up to 32 megapixels.
Of course, we will also see smartphones in early 2018, which will use the platform. And what these smartphones are supposed to do is roughly set by the SoC in terms of maximum – so you can check out what's coming up on Qualcomm's page.
