Leveraging mobile to deliver a powerful anywhere computing experience.

Reliable connectivity

The freedom of mobile computing relies on the power of secure connectivity. Our Snapdragon mobile processors and modems support integrated 4G LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity, delivering fast data speeds and smooth connections to support rich mobile apps and services.

Immersive entertainment experiences

Vibrant sound, crystal-clear photos and vividly crisp videos—all in the palm of your hand. That’s the advantage of our Snapdragon processors, designed to provide OEMs with an integrated, comprehensive solution for advanced multimedia capabilities. 

Power and efficiency

Our Snapdragon solutions combine faster processing power with efficient use of battery life for enhanced device performance and power. And our battery management solutions—including our Quick Charge™ technology, which refills batteries of enabled devices up to 4x faster than conventional charging—mean that consumers can spend less time charging their devices and more time using them.

Robust security solutions

Our security solutions use security-focused, direct communication links when transmitting sensitive information to help safeguard personal data. To further protect against hackers, Snapdragon processors also have the ability to support robust malware detection, theft deterrence and advanced authentication features, including biometric authentication with our Snapdragon Sense™ ID fingerprint technology.
