Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 is the combination of the world’s most advanced 5G-RF system and the X55. It provides better connectivity and improved performance on the flagship devices. The X55 plays a vital role that gives peak speed of up to 7.5Gbps which is faster than most wired connection speeds. The SoC includes the combination of 5th-Gen Qualcomm AI Engine and the new Qualcomm sensing Hub that offers better intelligence capabilities. 

The new Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset has 480 ISP (Image Signal Processor) that includes an extraordinary feature to mobile photography and videography. It has a speed of up to 2 gigapixels per second. The most important Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset comes with Kyro 585 CPU that improves 25% performance. And the Adreno 650 GPU delivers up to 25% performance improvement in the comparison of the previous generation. 

Here’s is pretty much everything you need to know the most advanced- Snapdragon 865 chip.

Snapdragon 865 delivers at least 5Gs

The X55 modem comes the first time with the world’s first commercial modem-to-antenna 5G solution. It allows for more consistent and faster connectivity. The most important thing about the flagship chip is the same 5G chip you’ve been waiting for. The snapdragon 865 is going to be the chip that ships inside every major Android phone in the upcoming Android phone next year. The entire swath of devices is going to be compatible. 

Moreover, it improves the other performance with better Wi-Fi and Bluetooth performance. With the Qualcomm Fast Connect 6800 connectivity system improving the speeds (up to 1.8Gbps) and reducing latency. There is another important Qualcomm aptX Voice that helps the platform with assistance for SWB (Super Wide Band) to deliver better audio with reduced latency.

Powering next-gen AI (Artificial Intelligence)

Qualcomm is also adding other things include much-improved AI processing and it is an important feature as AI functions become even better to the Smartphone experience. The 5th generation AI engine is also double powerful as compared to the previous Smartphone.  Additionally, the AI engine has the Qualcomm Hexagon Tensor accelerator at its core that provides better performance compared to the previous generation. It also improves 35% more power-efficient.   

Taking the perfect picture

Photography is a cornerstone of every modern Smartphone experience and the upgraded new processor of the snapdragon 865 makes great changes to its ISP (Image Signal Processor). It has outstanding capabilities and more features for users. The upgraded processor includes Helpdesk for up to 200MP camera sensors, 720p 960fps slow-motion video recording with no time limit, 8K 30fps video capture, on-device Dolby Vision HDR, and up to 64MP instant snaps while recording video. It has also done great change in its spectra ISP. ISP was processing one pixel per clock cycle earlier but now it works on four pixels per cycle. There is also a lot more changes as compared to the previous ISP.    

Better gaming experience now! 

From the last year, Snapdragon 865 shows a 15-17% increase in CPU performance. And a 9% increase in GPU performance from last-gen Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus in real-world testing.
