What is Snapdragon?
Qualcomm's Snapdragon platform offers an unprecedented combination of processing performance and optimized power consumption for the new generation of smart mobile devices.
Recording and playing video on your mobile device never looked so good.
Experience high-quality still and video imaging on a Snapdragon 800 series device.
The DragonBoard Development Kit based on a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor is designed to enable development and innovation right out of the box. A feature-rich exposed board platform that is designed for ease of use, provides access to best-in-class hardware, tools, and resources for industry-leading performance.
To do everything from banking to shopping, we send sensitive information through our mobile devices and need that data to be secure.

We custom design our own microarchitecture, called “Krait,” based on the ARM instruction set. This allows us to innovate and improve performance every step of the way. The Krait CPU design uses asynchronous symmetric multiprocessing (aSMP), a technology that can throttle the frequency of each CPU core independently. This allows the CPU to use only the number of cores and amount of power needed to complete the task at hand, resulting in an incredibly power efficient design. Watch the video to see how performance comes from design.
The Snapdragon 800 Mobile Development Platform provides developers with early access to the high-performance Android 4.2 platform for developing, testing, optimizing, and showcasing applications and games.
Snapdragon BatteryGuru is an Android app that is designed to optimize your device for battery longevity based on how you use it. You can see which applications are hogging power, and which aren’t.
