Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 850 is a processor built with laptops in mind

Tuesday, June 5th, 2018

Qualcomm has announced what is technically a new chipset today in the upcoming Snapdragon 850 - and it's probably not what you think. While it could power your next laptop (maybe), you almost certainly won't be seeing the Snapdragon 850 in your next phone.

Qualcomm seems to be changing its processor naming strategy once again, because logically, you'd think the Snapdragon 850 would be the next iteration of its flagship mobile platform, but in fact it's just a Snapdragon 845 designed with laptop and similar form factors specifically in mind.

ARM’s new A76 CPU core could make your next smartphone a lot faster

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

ARM unveiled its brand-new A76 CPU design at an event in San Francisco today, and while it may not be in your next smartphone, there's a good chance it'll be in the one after that. And it's going to make it a fair bit faster - around 35% faster than ARM's current top-of-the-line core.

If you're not familiar, ARM is the company behind the CPU instruction set used in essentially every modern smartphone (and yes, that includes the iPhone), and it's also behind the core CPU designs used in the vast majority of them.

Here are all the devices that support Qualcomm Quick Charge 4/4+ [Continuously Updated]

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

It's definitely hard to keep up with all the different quick charging technologies. Most flagships use Qualcomm Quick Charge, some (like the Pixels) use USB-PD, and a few others use custom tech like OnePlus Dash Charge. Qualcomm Quick Charge 4 is over a year old at this point, but for one reason or another, most devices have stuck with QC 3.0.

Qualcomm announces Snapdragon XR1 chip for VR and AR headsets

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

Consumer virtual reality started picking up steam a few years ago, but both desktop and mobile VR required a separate device to power the experience—either a PC or a smartphone. We're starting to see the first standalone VR headsets now with the Oculus Go and Lenovo Mirage. These headsets have Qualcomm chips, but they're the same ones used in phones. Qualcomm has just announced a new design purpose-built for VR and AR applications.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 kicks off new 700 series with promise of affordable flagship-level performance

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Back at the end of February, Qualcomm revealed that it was working on an entirely new 700 series of SoCs, meant to bring many higher-end features like the Kryo core architecture and Custom DSPs to a more accessible price—and partly to replace the Snapdragon 660, which didn't quite belong in the 600 series. Today Qualcomm has announced the first of the chips for this new series: The Snapdragon 710 mobile platform. 

The Snapdragon 710 has Qualcomm's X15 LTE modem, Hexagon 685 DSP, Spectra 250 dual ISP, Aqstic Audio, and custom Kryo 360 CPU cores, all paired with its Adreno 616 graphics.

Qualcomm will launch new processor for wearables this fall

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

Despite frequent updates, Wear OS (formerly Android Wear) is definitely stagnating from a hardware perspective. Most watches use Qualcomm's Wear 2100 processor, which is over two years old at this point. At long last, the company is working on a brand new mobile chipset for wearables, which will arrive this fall.

The new chip was confirmed by Qualcomm's senior director of wearables, Pankaj Kedia. It will be revealed this fall, alongside a 'lead' smartwatch using the chipset.
