At its annual tech summit in Hawaii, Qualcomm has just unveiled the next iteration of its mobile platform.
If you’ve picked up a flagship phones from the likes of Google, Samsung or HTC in 2017 then the likelihood is that it’ll be powered by the Snapdragon 835 mobile platform – now Qualcomm has unveiled its successor.
Update: Qualcomm has announced that the 845 platform will have a big focus on improving the camera, security and battery life. There’ll be deep support for single-sensor bokeh in your photos and it looks like Quick Charge 4 will finally begin to be supported by more phones.
The Snapdragon 845 will likely feature in the big phones of 2018, but as of yet we’re not exactly sure what’s new. We’re sure it’ll be more efficient, faster and offer improved battery life, but Qualcomm hasn’t shed too many details yet.
It did say it’ll introduce improved security, the ability to shoot 360-degree UHD video and add further support for Gigabit LTE thanks to the X20 modem. Smartphone and tablet users with access to those speeds through their mobile network will be able to download a full 3GB HD movie in just 3 minutes, Qualcomm says.
What we do know is that Xiaomi was the first to announce it’ll be making an 845 phone, as the Chinese brand joined Qualcomm on stage to tease its upcoming device. Again, we don’t have any specifics about the phone, CPU aside, but it’d make sense for it to be a successor to Xiaomi Mi 6.
However, the 845 is also likely to appear in a host of “Always Connected” Windows 10 laptops like the ASUS and HP convertibles also announced today.
Those machines, which arrive with a whopping 20-hour battery life, run the current Snapdragon 835 processor, but it would make sense for Qualcomm to release some super-powered versions with this newly announced platform.
We expect to hear more about the Snapdragon 845 tomorrow, so stay tuned for more.
