Qualcomm just revealed more details on its latest flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 845, which it claims can record 4K HDR video at 60 frames per second!
Naturally, it sports improved performance and better power efficiency than its predecessor, but the most impressive new features lie in the chipset’s video capture capability.
On top of 4K HDR video recording, it’s also capable of capturing slow-motion video at a whopping 480fps. This, however, is only limited to 720p. 1080p recordings, on the other hand, are capped at 240fps.
The Snapdragon 845 also features improved graphics performance: its Adreno 630 GPU is said to be 30 per cent more powerful than before, while boasting 30 per cent better power efficiency.
And then we have the Snapdragon 845’s new X20 LTE modem. In comparison to the X16 modem found in the Snapdragon 835, the X20 features 20 per cent faster peak and real-world speeds.
The CPU is now made up of eight Kryo 385 cores, which can be clocked up to 2.8GHz.
The chipset is expected to ship on smartphones as early as spring 2018. The Xiaomi Mi7 will be the first to feature the new SoC.
As expected, we will also see Windows 10 laptops running on Snapdragon 845 chipsets in the future.
