Longer-lasting battery life starts here.
Designed for mobile first, every bit of a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor is made to be power efficient without compromising performance. From our commitment to energy-saving and high-performing heterogeneous computing to a Qualcomm® Hexagon™ Digital Signal Processor (DSP) that can offload tasks from the CPU to save power, maximizing battery life is a part of everything we do.
The Hexagon DSP inside certain Snapdragon processors can work closely with the CPU and GPU to help deliver exceptionally low-power, high-performance audio capabilities. This is designed not only to extend your device’s battery life, but also maximize its thermal efficiency for a better overall user experience.
What’s so special about DSP?
The computing power supplied by Snapdragon processors requires sophisticated power management integrated circuit (PMIC) solutions. The PMIC built in to Snapdragon processors is designed to allow for very tight control of power saving features that maximize battery efficiency without unnecessarily compromising performance and reliability.
Quick Charge powers your device faster.
Spend more time doing and less time charging with Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 2.0 technology. It enables devices to charge up to 75% faster, so you stay connected, mobile and doing everything you enjoy with dramatically reduced charging times.
Leading the wireless charge.
Reduce the need for wall chargers, power strips, and congested wall outlets with Qualcomm® WiPower™ wireless charging technology. WiPower offers a flexible approach to wirelessly power and charge mobile phones, tablets, Bluetooth headsets, and a wide range of products with simple drop-and-go placement. It will be an included feature of the Snapdragon 810 processor.
