Outside of Apple devices, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon line has dominated the premium smartphone world, and is found in nearly every flagship Android device on the market. The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 mobile processor, is expected to grace this year’s smartphones and comes with improved performance, new capabilities for virtual reality, more efficiency and photography tweaks. The new processor consumes 25 percent less power than last year’s chip, this means about more 2.5 hours of battery time for your smartphone.
It is based on 10nm fabrication technology — a first for the Snapdragon line — which is smaller and allows for thinner phones with larger batteries compared to earlier processors.For those who love the current fast charging technologies, the Snapdragon 835 also comes with the latest version of the company’s fast charging technology, called Quick Charge 4.0. The new version is fully compatible with USB Type-C industry standards, can charge 20 percent faster than Quick Charge 3.0. With Quick charge 4.0 you can have 5 hours of use from just 5 minutes of charging according to Qualcomm.
