Product Brief

Battery life that keeps on going

Devices are engineered to require less frequent charging thanks to a low-power Cortex A53 processor and efficiency-boosting features like universal bandwidth compression.

All pixels accounted for

The Snapdragon 626's dual ISP is designed to support rich detail and optical zoom for photos, and an expansive set of camera features, like gyro image stabilization and enhanced autofocus.

Even more powerful processing

An integrated Adreno 506 series GPU is designed to deliver unprecedented processing power for dazzling displays.

4K Ultra HD video

Premium 4K video with HEVC capture and playback for optimal balance of quality and bandwidth.

Integrated X9 LTE

Up to 3x the LTE upload speeds of most LTE devices - up to 150 Mbps, and advanced Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO - for super-fast sharing of high res photos and videos.

Less time charging

Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 3.0 is up to four times as fast as conventional charging and is 38% more efficient than Quick Charge 2.0. Spend less time charging and more time doing.
