Our mobile processors don't just manage your mobile device's features, they improve them. With hardware and software designed to optimize each area of use, your processor can enhance virtually any mobile experience—fast and efficiently.
Eventually, all devices need an energy boost. Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ technology, next-level charging technology for mobile devices powered by Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors, keeps you and your device up and running efficiently by charging faster than conventional chargers—helping you stay connected, mobile, and on the go.
The Qualcomm® Kryo™ CPU available in certain Snapdragon processors is optimized for high-performance mobile computing, and Kryo is designed to deliver a premium performance using less power generation after generation—helping to meet your mobile needs without compromise.
The next-generation Qualcomm® Hexagon™ DSP is designed to deliver advanced imaging and sensor-based features, while offloading tasks from the CPU to help save energy. Imaging and computer vision hardware help brighten up low-light areas of video and photos faster, using only a fraction of the power used by the CPU.
Qualcomm All-Ways Aware™ technology senses and collects data at virtually all times, using very little battery at the same time. It is designed to improve the battery efficiency of always-on activities like activity counters so you can keep track of your steps, and sensor-assisted location accuracy to help ensure you’re headed in the right direction.
A built-in Qualcomm® Adreno™ GPU is the powerhouse engine behind extraordinary video detail and fluid animations, designed to quickly render complex geometries for next-level visuals in games and apps with super-fast responsiveness and superior mobile connectivity that create truly immersive experiences.
Qualcomm Spectra™ dual image signal processors (ISPs) are engineered to support high-megapixel cameras, superb image quality, super-fast autofocus and cutting-edge noise reduction technologies, bringing professional-grade imagery to mobile devices.
Qualcomm® Clear Sight™ camera technology consists of a single, fully integrated hardware module using two cameras designed to take photos at the exact same time and merge the two photos together, instantaneously, with outstanding image quality even in low lighting.
Devices featuring certain Snapdragon processors are designed to support lightning-fast hybrid auto focusing systems, so you can snap with precision.
Snapdragon processors enable photos and videos that are bright and colorful, regardless of lighting conditions. The processors can scan for visual noise, brightening and sharpening spots as needed.
When it comes to displays, an increase in pixels means better clarity, depth and contrast. 4K Ultra HD—found in Snapdragon 800 series processors—employs 4 times the pixels of standard 1080p full HD.
Select Snapdragon processors are ULTRA HD PREMIUM-ready with support for High Dynamic Range, wider color gamut, and 10 bit color depth (HDR10). These technologies are engineered to deliver brighter whites and deeper blacks, making colors more vibrant and capturing details in the subject that might otherwise be lost with Standard Dynamic Range (SDR).
Truly accurate color requires fine tuning at the pixel level. Qualcomm® TruPalette™ display features are designed to work behind the scenes, without any user adjustments to display settings, and is engineered to enhance the display’s appearance through an intelligent color adjustment and gamut-mapping system to make colors look vibrant and true to life.
Displays using Qualcomm® EcoPix™ technology adapt to a device's surroundings, making the display easily viewed, even in bright sunlight.
A Qualcomm Aqstic audio technology
A combination of Qualcomm Aqstic® hardware and software are designed to deliver a superior voice and audio experience to enabled Snapdragon-powered smartphones: The Qualcomm Aqstic audio codec and speaker amplifier are designed to reproduce tremendous Hi-Fi audio at the same quality as studio masters. Qualcomm Aqstic echo cancellation, noise suppression, and voice activation technologies make interaction with your device easier than ever. And Qualcomm Aqstic MPEG-H scene-based audio technology is designed to give you a truly immersive VR/AR audio experience.
Surround sound in mobile devices is now more immersive than ever. Snapdragon processors support the latest Dolby and DTS technologies so you can experience true surround sound without an actual home theater. With Qualcomm Aqstic surround sound recording, you can also capture video with surround sounds using multiple mics around your smartphone.
Qualcomm® Immersive Audio takes the portable surround sound experience to the next level. With a Snapdragon device that supports dual-front speakers, you can now experience surround sound without any headphones.
