As Qualcomm stated, “the most advanced games demand a lot out of a smartphone,” like high frame-rates and specific APIs, for example. The Snapdragon 675 takes all of these into account, while the chip is also optimized for popular games and game engines such as Unity, Unreal, and Messiah. The Snapdragon 675 also bows to the trend of numerous AI-assisted camera lenses on a single device by supporting a triple camera configuration compatible with telephoto, wide angle, and super-wide-angle lenses. Additionally, the chip supports an enhanced portrait mode and limitless slow-motion all in HD with help from the AI to optimally shoot media.
In general, though, the multi-core AI engine supports far more than just the camera of a device. The software is engineered to become the ultimate assistant by, “learning and adapting to a user’s voice, and optimizing battery life.” It can support device security and translation, as well.
The 675 is expected to be implemented into consumer phones in Q1 of 2019, but with the mobile platform already being available today, developers can get started creating apps, services, and other features that optimize this new generation system-on-chip.
