Product Brief

Qualcomm Spectra 280 ISP

The Qualcomm Spectra™ 280 ISP is designed to deliver a premium camera and XR experience, with high-performance capture of up to 16 MP at 60 images per second. Video enthusiasts will appreciate cinema-like quality video thanks to ultra HD premium capture with richer color.

Adreno 630 Visual Processing Subsystem

Deliver larger-than-life immersive experiences with the Qualcomm® Adreno™ 630 Visual Processing Subsystem (including GPU, VPU and DPU), featuring room-scale 6DoF with SLAM, Adreno Foveation, and significantly improved graphics rendering and video processing compared to the previous generation.

AI platform

The 3rd Generation Qualcomm® Hexagon™ 685 DSP supports sophisticated, on-device AI processing, delivering richer camera, voice, XR and gaming experiences.

Qualcomm Secure Processing Unit (SPU)

We designed the Snapdragon 845 with an entirely new Qualcomm® Secure Processing Unit (SPU) that is engineered to help protect personal data with vault-like security. Biometrics used for authentication can be stored in isolation, helping to keep precious data out of prying eyes.

X20 modem & Wi-Fi

Experience fiber-optic speeds with the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X20 LTE Modem. New flexibility means that more operators around the world can offer lightning-fast Gigabit LTE service, now with up to 20% faster peak and real-world speeds compared to our last generation X16 LTE modem. Users can also experience similar lightning-fast speeds with 802.11ad multi-gigabit Wi-Fi and integrated 2x2 802.11ac.

Virtually all-day battery life and quick charging

Our energy-efficient Snapdragon 845 mobile platform is engineered for all-day battery life. With a Qualcomm® Kryo™ CPU built on ARM Cortex technology and Qualcomm Quick Charge™ 4+ technology (capable of up to a 50% charge in only 15 minutes*) even the most demanding applications can run all day.
