Qualcomm is a global leader in wireless technology and semiconductors. Qualcomm dominates the provision of flagship chipset to the android market. In Q4 of 2020, Qualcomm released their latest mobile chipset – Snapdragon 888 – which will set the benchmark for flagship smartphones in 2021. The Snapdragon 888 uses the new 5nm fabrication process and offers advances in 5G connectivity, artificial intelligence, gaming and image processing as well as great performance.
This chip promises a step further in the modern era of photography with new speed and new AI smarts. It adds a third image processing module that allows flagships to handle three simultaneous video streams, all in 4K resolution with high dynamic range imagery. Artificial intelligence is used to train for better judgement in photo focus and brightness.
Qualcomm’s history of breakthrough technology inventions have paved the way for their continued leadership in the premium-tier mobile segments and the snapdragon is no less. Qualcomm takes a bet by focusing on improving real-world in gaming, photography, artificial intelligence and 5G so that even though they may have lower benchmark scores they are very practically applicable in real-life applications.
