Qualcomm Incorporated today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., has introduced four new Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors aimed at enhancing user experience and tilslutning for high-performance and high-volume mobile devices. The newSnapdragon 620 og Snapdragon 618 processorer omdefinerer 600-niveauet med markant højere ydelsesniveauer med integrerede 64-bit ARM Cortex A-72 CPU'er og det nye X8 LTE-modem. Den nye Snapdragon 425 og Snapdragon 415processors both funktion octa-core CPUs, a first for the 400 tier. The Snapdragon 425 doubles LTE downloade and upload speeds with the X8 LTE modem, another first in the 400 tier, as well as advanced camera features with dual ISPs and high-fidelity audio, while the Snapdragon 415 processor integrates X5 LTE, supporting download speeds of up to 150 Mbps. The Snapdragon 415 chipset is sampling now and expected to be in commercial devices in first half of 2015. The Snapdragon 620, 618 and 425 processors are expected to be in commercial devices in the second half of 2015.

Som en del af denne meddelelse har Qualcomm Technologies også udvidet sit flagskibsmærke, Snapdragon, til sine diskrete modemschipsæt, og introduceret LTE-modemklasser (including X8 and X5) across its latest system-on-chip and discrete modem products for mobile devices. The new X8 LTE modem, which supports both downlink and uplink Carrier Aggregation, supporting peak download speeds of up to 300 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 100 Mbps. X8 LTE connectivity supports wideband (up to 40 MHz) downlink and uplink carrier aggregation for the first time in the 600 and 400 tiers. X5 LTE, found in the Snapdragon 415, features integrated 4G LTE Cat 4.

Snapdragon 620- og 618-processorer inkluderer også funktioner, der tidligere kun var tilgængelige i Snapdragon 800-niveauet, herunder dobbelt ISP-kamera, 4K-videooptagelse og -afspilning, HEVC-hardwarekodning, rigere spil med næste generation af Qualcomm® Adreno ™ -grafik og avanceret Wi-Fi-forbindelse . Alle de nye processorer er designet til at forbedre forbrugernes brugeroplevelse og er tilgængelige med de nyeste kamerafunktioner, fantastiske downloadhastigheder og hurtig opladning med Qualcomm® QuickCharge ™ 2.0-teknologi.

“It has always been Qualcomm Technologies’ strategy to introduce industry-leading features first at the premium Snapdragon 800 tier design point, and then scale these features into our Snapdragon 600, 400 and 200 products, so that we can hjælpe our customers deliver great user experiences to cost-conscious consumers,” said Alex Katouzian, senior vice president of product management, Qualcomm Technologies. “We are excited to annoncere the Snapdragon 620 and 618 processors with next-generation graphics, camera, 4K video capture and connectivity, all premium tier features previously only found in our Snapdragon 800 klasse products. The Snapdragon 620 and 618 also both come with X8 LTE, as does the Snapdragon 425, marking the first time we’ve supported this amazingly fast speed at the 400 tier.”

De nye Snapdragon 620- og 618-processorer integrerer overlegne brugeroplevelser til højtliggende mobile enheder, mens de opretholder overlegen batteriydelse, herunder:

  • X8 LTE-forbindelse: Seamless, always-on connectivity with LTE Cat 7 modem supporting 2×20 MHz Carrier Aggregation for data speeds of up to 300 and 100 Mbps, in the download and upload, respectively. Single SKU global multimode LTE design capable of LTE Broadcast, LTE dual SIM, and VoLTE
  • Overlegen ydelse: Fast responsiveness, ansøgning loading, web browsing and fil access are made possible with high-end 64-bit Cortex-A72 CPUs. Snapdragon 620 combines 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 CPUs and Cortex-A53 cores; Snapdragon 618 is configured with two ARM Cortex-A72 cores paired with quad Cortex-A53 CPUs.  Dual kanal LPDDR3 memory increases the memory båndbredde to seamlessly run intensive applications such as 4K video.
  • Realistisk grafik: Den næste generation af Qualcomm® Adreno ™ GPU er designet, så brugerne kan opleve endnu mere realistiske scener og grafik for en stærkt forbedret mobilspiloplevelse med lavere styrke.
  • Ekstraordinært kamera: Kamera i høj kvalitet med dobbelt billedsignalprocessorer (ISP), der understøtter to 13MP-kameraer, gyro-billedstabilisering, forbedret autofokus og lokal tonekortlægning for at forbedre billedkvaliteten ud over HDR.
  • Avanceret multimedia: 4K videooptagelse og -afspilning med HEVC (H.265) for første gang i 600-niveauet, sammen med support til Quad HD (2K) -display og trådløs streaming fuld HD.
  • Kontinuerlige sensorer med lav effekt: Dedikeret Qualcomm® Hexagon ™ DSP-sensormotor understøtter realtids, altid brugte sager til bevægelse, placering, sundheds- og miljøfølsomhed, og minimerer behovet for et eksternt sensornav, der understøtter høj ydelse ved meget lavere effekt.
  • Enestående lydoplevelse: Qualcomm Immersive Audio giver forbrugere mulighed for at nyde film og musik med teaterlignende lyd, førstepersonsspil med hidtil uset realisme og fuldt opslukende lydoplevelse uden behov for hovedtelefoner. Understøtter også High-Fidelity 192kHz / 24bit musikafspilning til de mest krævende audiofiler og musikelskere.
