 Qualcomm launches a new generation of flagship chip


In addition, the snapdragon 888 is equipped with a new sixth generation of Qualcomm AI engine, including a newly designed Qualcomm hexagon processor. Compared with the previous generation platform, the AI performance and energy efficiency have been greatly improved, reaching 26 trillion operations per second. Snapdragon 888 integrates the third generation snapdragon elite gaming, bringing the most significant one-time performance improvement in the history of Qualcomm adrenogpu. Computational photography has also been added to enhance the shooting function of smart phones. Qualcomm spectrum ISP supports faster processing speed of 1 billion pixels. Users can take photos and videos at the speed of 2.7 billion pixels per second, that is, 120 frames per second and each frame is 12 million pixels. Compared with the previous generation platform, the processing speed is up to 35%.

In the keynote address, Qualcomm technologies also demonstrated the power of the snapdragon 888 with a wireless remote-controlled racing car based entirely on 5g millimeter wave connectivity. In cooperation with Verizon and Ericsson, Qualcomm has built a 5g private network. Both remote-controlled racing cars are connected to and controlled by the snapdragon 888 reference design mobile phones integrated with snapdragon x605g modem and RF system. The driver controls the car about 1.6 km away from the track, and uses the video function supported by the snapdragon 888 to remotely watch the track. In addition, with the support of tension, the whole process can be viewed through multiple low delay video streams, and the position of remote-controlled racing car can be tracked more accurately on dynamic map by using the latest positioning function of high-tech positioning kit. This demonstration shows the possibility of communication technology with high performance, high reliability and low delay to support rich use cases.

After the launch of Qualcomm snapdragon 888, the major mobile phone companies have expressed their support for Qualcomm.

In addition, Yijia, Sony, vivo, Meizu, black shark, ZTE, Nubia, Lenovo, ASUS, LG, Motorola and sharp also expressed support for the snapdragon 888. The relevant terminal products will be launched later.

At the summit, more than 700 5g devices equipped with snapdragon have been released or are under development. 5g business started rapidly last year, and the momentum is growing. Compared with LTE (4G), the number of operators launching 5g commercial services in the initial 18 months of deployment is already five times higher. Looking forward to 2021, we expect that the global 5g smartphone shipment will reach 450-550 million units, and more than 750 million units by 2022. Source: surging news editor: Yang Bin_ NF4368
