Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors feature ground-breaking audio technologies that support superior voice quality, audio playback, and recording. This includes multi-channel surround sound for gaming and movies, recording and playing back high-fidelity audio, and producing professional multi-channel videos.
Integrated Dolby audio.
The Snapdragon 805 processor supports a new version of Dolby® audio technology that’s more engaging and engrossing than typical virtual surround sound, all while running on less battery life. This new technology supports sophisticated height dimension in audio—sounds that emanate not just from around you, but from above you, that would typically be experienced only in movie theaters. This advanced audio technology also makes dialogue crisper, even with heavy explosion or loud effects in the background.
Fluence™ Pro noise cancellation technology in Snapdragon processors are designed to enhance mobile voice quality. It isolates voice signals using our multi-Microphone Noise Cancellation technology: one microphone captures the voice signal and other microphones identifies and localizes the background noise--and significantly reduces it. This low-power, high-performance solution virtually eliminates distracting background noise, including crowds, wind and cars, for sleek devices that deliver incredible voice quality.
Snapdragon Voice Activation
Snapdragon voice activation technology in Snapdragon processors was the world’s first commercial integrated always-on, low-power listening feature. It supports devices to use the least amount of power possible to listen and be “woken up” only by a specific word spoken by the voice of the device owner, enabling both a secure and power efficient solution for users.
Digital Signal Processor (DSP)
The Hexagon™ DSP in Snapdragon processors is key to many of the advanced audio features users enjoy. The DSP is an efficient processing workhorse, closely coupled with the Snapdragon CPU and GPU to help certain Snapdragon processors efficiently deliver superior user experiences with all day battery life.
Integrating advanced audio technologies designed to deliver increasingly impressive capabilities, mobile heterogeneous computing supports superior sound experiences.
