Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 spec slides leaked ahead of its CES 2017 launch

A week ago, Qualcomm announced that it would give out more information about its upcoming flagship Snapdragon 835 chipset at the upcoming CES 2017.

Earlier models of Chipsets by Qualcomm, Snapdragon 820 and the Snapdragon 821 chipset are now used on premium smartphones which are Quad Core. Namely, there would be a 27% performance improvement and up to 40% less power consumption compared to the previous version. The mobile chip manufacturer today took the wraps of its latest high-end processor - the Snapdragon 835 - which is said to be 25% faster than last year's Snapdragon 820, while using 25% less power.

The upgraded imaging components include support for phase detection autofocus using dual photodiode imaging sensors, improved video stabilization and rolling shutter correction for 4K video, and an integrated capability to create high dynamic range images by fusing different pictures together. This is optimized by the Qualcomm Symphony System Manager to support superior thermals and long battery life. On the contrary, graphics performance will increase by about 20 percent over the 820-part of the "app uplift" between the older and newer generations, Kressin said.

In November of 2016, Qualcomm announced their collaboration with Samsung Electronics to use its "revolutionary 10nm FinFET process for the newly announced premium-tier Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor". A leaked slideshow, perhaps for use at CES (but I'd say more likely not), has confirmed some of the details from the new processor, and it's time to get a bit excited. The modem is also 45 percent smaller and 60 percent more power efficient because of the new 10nm process. Adreno 540 comes with a support for 10-bit 4K@60fps display, Q-Sync, and wide color gamut and a VPU - 4K HEVC 10-bit playback, foveated video support important for VR.

Along with a more immersive experience, devices powered by the Snapdraon 835 will have better still and video camera abilities.

The Snapdragon 835, like its predecessor is all about balance. The first Snapdragon 835 devices are expected in the first half of this year.

Quick Charge 4.0 will be the next generation of fast charging technology from Qualcomm and will work fine with the 835.

One such device, the the ODG R-8 and R-9 AR/VR smartglasses, were shown at the event.

Interestingly, the Snapdragon 835 will also be the first 800-series Snapdragon to fully support the DX12 graphics API, which will coincide with the launch of Windows 10 on ARM in devices set to debut throughout 2017.

In terms of connectivity, Snapdragon 835 integrates Snapdragon X16 LTE modem and support for 802.11ad Wi-Fi.
