The ultra powerful phones are coming – Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 is here

Qualcomm is here with its new ultra powerful processor that is soon going to be powering the upcoming flagship mobiles, two of them already set foot – the One plus 5 and Samsung Galaxy S8. It will be the smaller in size (35% smaller) and more energy efficient (uses 25% less power) than the previous designs. The challenge of taking the mobile cameras to the level of DSLR cameras is also going to be addressed with Snapdragon 835. Shifting the fast mobile networks in to ultra fast, Snapdragon X16 LTE modem will support up to a massive 1 Gbps download speeds and up to 150 Mbps upload speed. Improving on the 25% faster graphics rendering and 60x more display colors compared to previous designs, the Qualcomm® Adreno™ 540 GPU replaced the old Adreno™ 530 which can significantly improve video and gaming experience. That is clearly the target of Qualcomm, to push the mobile world more towards augmented and virtual reality. The components in Snapdragon 835 seem like it is designed for AR and VR: surround sound, eye tracking, better GPU, depth-perceiving cameras, and ultra-speed LTE.
