Given the large number of companies developing smartphones on the market today, we are continuously seeing the presentation of new models for different ranges by them. To this is added the constant advances that make smartphones have more and more capabilities while at the same time offering better energy yields.
In this regard, Qualcomm Technologies has just unveiled its next-generation processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, which will begin to be available on high-end smartphones launched in the first half of next year.According to Qualcomm, its new processor makes use of Samsung's 10 nanometer (nm) FinFET technology, which offers up to 30% more efficiency with 27% higher performance, and what is better, up to 40% lower energy consumption. To this is added the less space it occupies, which allows mobile phone developers to better optimize their internal spaces.
Following the introduction of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Qualcomm Technologies has also unveiled the next generation of its fast charging technology, Qualcomm Quick Charge 4, which will be supported by the new processor. Qualcomm says it offers faster charge times and offers greater efficiency than previous generations.
In this sense, he points out that the next models of phones that integrate it will see that it will be possible to use them for five or more hours with just five minutes of charge. In addition, it has support for USB Type-C connectors and adopts the USB-PD standard, making it compatible with the most widespread battery charging solutions in the industry.
Remember in this regard that Google is getting serious in this regard and does not want users to be unable to use chargers external to those included or sold by the developers of mobile phones for specific models.
While there are still quite a few details to reveal about its new processor, it will be a matter of time before we can access this information to complement what was officially announced today. And as usually happens, it will be a matter of time before we see the presentation of new models of mobile phones with the new integrated processor. While on paper it sounds good to be aware of what it translates to the average user in terms of tangible improvements in their daily use.
