Product Brief

Lightning-fast LTE

The Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X12 LTE modem offers 3x faster peak upload speeds and 33% faster peak download speeds compared to those of X10 LTE.

Immersive visual graphics

The Qualcomm® Adreno™ 530 GPU offers 40% improvement to graphics performance, compute capabilities, and power usage when compared to Adreno 430.

Spectra Camera ISP

14-bit Qualcomm Spectra™ Image Signal Processor (ISP) supports the capture of up to 28 megapixels with zero shutter lag.

Powerful Kryo CPU

As our first custom-designed 64-bit quad-core CPU, the Kryo CPU uses Qualcomm® Symphony System Manager as an intelligent resource management tool for Snapdragon that extends control of task scheduling and power management across the entire processor.

Efficient Hexagon 680 DSP

Significant improvement to the Qualcomm® Hexagon™ 680 DSP enables the CPU to offload many tasks for more efficient processing. Featuring Qualcomm All-Ways Aware™ technology, the Hexagon 680 DSP also allows for ultra-low power “always-on” sensors and advanced low power-image processing.

Less time charging

With Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 3.0, users can spend less time charging and more time doing. As our fastest and most efficient charging technology yet, Quick Charge 3.0 is 4x faster than conventional charging and 38% more efficient than Quick Charge 2.0.
