Benefits/Features of Qualcomm Snapdragon 865

This newly announced Chipset is hyping new architecture among its specifications, and all will indeed play a significant role in deciding what your next flagship smartphone is capable of doing.

Advanced 5G Mobile Platform

The Snapdragon 865 is the most powerful 5G mobile platform of all time. The world’s first commercial 5G antenna modem solution, the Snapdragon X55 5 G Modem-RF system, provides consistent, light-fast speeds with top speeds of up to 7.5 Gbps.

The integrated Modem-RF-System solution offers the most advanced technologies for superior coverage and data rates, including Qualcomm 5G PowerSave, Smart Transmit Technology, Qualcomm wideband envelope monitoring technology, and Qualcomm Signal Boost, as well as improving regular battery life.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 865

The 5G global solution supports both the TDD and FDD frequencies in all main regions and bands, including mmWave and sub-6.

It is supported by both the NSA and SA modes, together with DSS (Dynamic Spectrum Sharing), international 5G roaming and multi-SIM coverage. The Snapdragon 865 also redefines Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth audio experiences via a wireless networking subsystem Qualcomm FastConnect 6800.

Extensive Wi-Fi 6 feature innovation enables users to benefit from incredible speed (about 1.8 Gbps), and latency, particularly in crowded environments with a wide range of network devices.

Gigapixel Speed ISP

The ISP of the Snapdragon 865 will work up to 2 Gigapixel per second, which is a breathtaking speed and provide brand-new camera capabilities and features, of course.

One would be able to capture 8k video or take huge 200-megapixel images in 4 K HDR with more than 1 billion colour shades with ease. The gigapixel speed would also be used to slow down the situation and record unrestricted slow-motion video capture @ 690fps.

Dolby Vision, on the other hand, will produce amazing HDR images for large screen capture, for the first time on the mobile platform. The gigapixel speed ISP would easily and smartly identify different environments, people and objects together with the fifth generation Qualcomm AI Engine, so you would handle them individually for a really personalised image.

High-Quality Gaming

The fresh and first-to-mobile premium features of Snapdragon 865 are unlocked to offer ultra-smooth and high-quality gaming experience in the next generation Snapdragon Elite Gaming.

Snapdragon 865 is Android’s first mobile platform which supports Desktop Forward Rendering to allow game developers to bring a new level of realism to mobile play through desktop lighting and post-processing effects.

Adreno’s Updateable GPU drivers can be directly downloaded from the application store by OEM, which allows players to control their graphics driver updates and GPU settings to achieve premium performance in their top games.

The 144Hz screen refresh rate is too available for the first time on mobile and Game Color Plus in the highest echelon of display and graphical fidelity to improve game image quality with enhanced clarity, enhanced colour saturation, and local tone mapping.

The gameplay is now being optimised to the micro-second level by Snapdragon Game Performance Engine, offering adaptive and predictive real-time process tuning for long term results.

The most recent Adreno 650 GPU offers new embedded hardware features, including Adreno HDR Fast Blend, which can be used for challenging rendering systems in intense blending scenes with up to two times the potential to be lifted for specific tasks.
