Having a Snapdragon platform inside your smartphone offers a lot of unexpected benefits besides being just incredibly fast. For example, the Snapdragon 855 is the first commercial platform that supports capturing HDR10+ video on your smartphone. Also, the new platform supports portrait mode for videos, 4K HDR recording at 60fps and more. It helps to make static photos also look better as well.
The Snapdragon 855 could revolutionize the camera on your device
Having the Snapdragon 855 platform also allows phones to have a superior gaming experience. Developers can add features like HDR and more for higher graphics, and the platform includes lower latency than its predecessors so you can experience better multiplayer gaming with less lag.
The Qualcomm® AI Engine in the Snapdragon 855 has also gotten a boost, thanks to the new Qualcomm® Hexagon™ 890 DSP. The Qualcomm AI Engine in the Snapdragon 855 is three times faster than the one in the Snapdragon 845, which means machine learning features for cameras, games and more will get a significant boost in both performance and intelligence.
The Snapdragon 855 is built on a new 7nm manufacturing process. Not only does that provide the platform with faster performance in smartphones, but it is also more power efficient as well. The platform can also be used by developers to create new XR applications that merge the real world with virtual objects and locations.
