Processor Features (20)
Since the release of Windows Phone, Snapdragon processors have been the only hardware platform deemed worthy to support it. Inside every Window Phone 7 handset was either a Snapdragon™ S1 or S2 processor.
Two phones that look exactly alike may not always be the same. We know—it’s confusing. It happened with the HTC One X, where there is an international version and a U.S version that are identical in looks, but run on different processors.
And by cool, we’re not referring to its looks. Heat isn’t something gadget users always worry about. However, there are circumstances when a mobile device will heat up significantly, say, when you’re playing a 3D intensive game, chatting with video enabled, or watching an HD movie continuously for long periods of time.
We sent one phone featuring a Snapdragon processor around the world on one battery charge to make this video on one battery charge. In just over two weeks, the phone traveled from LA to New York, London, Paris, Shanghai, Moscow, Dubai, Mumbai, and Rio De Janeiro with a few pitstops in Istanbul and LA.
Qualcomm has spent the last few years working closely with Microsoft on its Windows Phone operating system for smartphones. To date, every one of these Windows Phones use a Snapdragon Processor, offering fast graphics, zippy web browsing, and long battery life. Because this collaboration has been so successful, Microsoft is making its next-generation Windows platform—for both PCs and Smartphones—available to Snapdragon processors as well.
After much anticipation, the details of the Snapdragon S4 processor and all of its trail-blazing features have been announced in time for Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona.
Sy Choudhury, Director of Product Management for Qualcomm, demonstrates how our web optimizations can enhance the overall web browsing and web apps experience on Android for Snapdragon S3 mobile processor-based devices.
Today Qualcomm is introducing a new way for our customers, our industry colleagues and consumers to identify the Snapdragon chipset that fits their needs. Those of you who know us well know that our current Snapdragon family of processors has grown to encompass over 15 different chips with feature sets that target mass market smartphones all the way through high end smartphones and tablets. And, although our Snapdragon chips are called processors, they are really system on chip solutions.
Everybody’s talking about 4G and now we’d like to show you what you get with Snapdragon on 4G/LTE.
As the availability of HD quality video on smartphones and tablets increases, so does consumers expectations of what constitutes an acceptable mobile entertainment experience. Consumers expect the type of rich, seamless entertainment experience they enjoy at home to also be what they experience on their mobile device.
