Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Mobile Platform is designed to deliver crystal-clear, low-power, audio and voice experiences.
With Snapdragon 888, we’re introducing the 2nd generation Qualcomm Sensing Hub, and it’s smarter than ever. With a dedicated always-on, low-power AI processor and we’re seeing a mind-blowing 5x AI performance improvement. The extra AI processing power on the Qualcomm Sensing Hub allows us to offload up to 80 percent of the workload that usually goes to the Hexagon processor, so that we can save even more power. The Sensing Hub has a range of applications, from helping you communicate effectively with your voice assistants to adjusting ringtone volume as you walk from loud to quiet environments.
2nd Generation Sensing Hub
Mar 5, 2021
At the core of your high-fidelity audio and voice assistant is our low-power audio subsystem (LPASS) The LPASS sits inside the Qualcomm® Hexagon™ Processor, part of the Qualcomm® AI Engine, and its purposely-built for audio and voice processing combing multiple scalar accelerators and other audio-related hardware to support functionality from audio coding/decoding and voice verification for security features, to audio speech recognition and machine learning.
Qualcomm® Voice Assist technology on the Snapdragon 888 Mobile Platform makes on-device voice interaction easier than previous generations. It is designed to allow devices to have always-on and always-listening capabilities, giving voice-driven smart assistants improved always-on keyword detection and ultra-low-power voice processing while using very little battery life. This is made possible by the 2nd gen Qualcomm® Sensing Hub and advanced voice assist software running the 6th gen Qualcomm AI Engine.
Qualcomm® multi-mic Echo Cancellation and Noise Suppression (ECNS) technology is engineered to isolate noisy environments from voice signals to enable the clearest possible audio on phone calls.
Qualcomm® adaptive active noise-cancellation (ANC) technology now is designed to support uninterrupted music and crystal-clear audio during phone calls.

Our High Dynamic Range (HDR) audio record allows you to capture sounds which were previously impossible in smartphone recordings. Qualcomm HDR audio record is designed to extend the range of capturing from very low to very high loudness preserving the crisp and natural sonic qualities of our surrounding sounds just the way our ears hear them. Ultimately, allowing us to record sound just as we hear, from the loudest concerts to the most delicate ambient sounds.
Our Multi-Mic 3D audio capture solution is a codec independent chain that is engineered to capture the entire 360 sound field by preserving the elevation data similar to our natural hearing capabilities. This feature is available on both 3 and 4 mic solutions.
Our Audio Zoom and Audio Focus use multiple microphones on your mobile device to focus in the intended direction you want to record, and minimize sound coming from other directions. This allows you to concentrate on a single sound source, like in a one-on-one conversation. This feature is available for both 3 and 4 mic solutions.
Our Wind Noise Reduction solution is designed to offer an effective suppression of wind noise for both Audio and Voice use cases. It works in tandem with our 3D Audio Capture, Audio Zoom and Audio Focus to provide comprehensive high quality solution.
Qualcomm Technologies offers a cutting-edge end-to-end speaker playback post processing solution. Providing best-in-class speaker playback enhancement technologies for smartphones which encompass a broad range of technologies from Dynamic Processing to Bass Enhancement and many more.
