Qualcomm 845 chip-cool specs. Coming 2018

That hand-held computer of the future is about to get niftier!

[www.cnet.com]

The Snapdragon 845, with its new X20 modem, AI capabilities and other features, will show up in devices in 2018.
Qualcomm on Wednesday detailed its upcoming Snapdragon 845 processor that likely will power most high-end Android phones launching in 2018. The chip boasts improved image and video capture abilities, smarter artificial intelligence features, "lightning-fast connectivity," "vault-like security" and better performance and power efficiency.

In other words, your next Xiaomi Mi 7 or Samsung Galaxy S9 will let you shoot more true-to-life video and photos, use a smart assistant to analyze the images, upload them quickly and keep them secure on your phone. You'll be able to do more, a lot faster -- and with better battery life.

Qualcomm's chip is comprised of the Spectra 280 image signal processor that lets you record video in Ultra HD premium. The technology has richer, more life-like colors and lets you capture 64-times more high-dynamic range color. The chip also features multi-frame noise reduction, making smoother images. You can capture high-performance content up to 16MP at 60 frames per second, while slow-motion video can be captured at 720p at 480 frames per second.

The Adreno 630 graphics in the Snapdragon 835 boast 30 percent better graphics and video rendering and consume 30 percent less energy for video recording. "Adreno foveation" reduces power consumption, improves visual quality and boosts AR and VR application performance, Qualcomm says.

Artificial intelligence capabilities are three times better than the previous generation, "transforming your mobile device into the ultimate personal assistant." It simplifies how you take pictures and videos, letting you do things like create a bokeh effect -- with the subject in focus and the background blurred -- using only one camera lens instead of two. (Apple's iPhones create a bokeh using two camera lenses).

You also have Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ to recharge your device even faster.

The Kryo 385 CPU, or the brains of the chip, features four "performance cores" that run at up to 2.8GHz, up 25 percent from the previous generation. Four "efficiency cores" run at up to 1.7GHz, helping save energy when doing less intensive tasks.

The X20 LTE modem embedded on the chip adds support for 1.2 Gbps Gigabit LTE. It's 20 percent faster for peak and real-world speeds than the older X16 modem. You'll be able to download a 3GB movie in less than three minutes.

You'll have to wait until 2018 to get a real world comparison.

Less hype than with Apple's current chip. Additionally, Apple is shipping their current chip where this is not. And when this does ship, it's not a stretch to guess that Apple will have an A12 which is comparable or better.

I think this is the chip in the new HP and ASUS Android tablet/laptop (Surface clone) that run Win10.
