Qualcomm says Snapdragon easily exceeds 800 Nvidia Tegra 4

All eyes in the mobile world are in imminent Nvidia Tegra 4 processor. The hardware manufacturer wisely showed potential chip performance this week at the Mobile World Congress, and it was a big surprise that the quad-core Cortex-A15 GPU processor cores and 72 were able to defeat current generation background competitors.


Qualcomm, the company’s biggest competitor in the market, not the least concerned. The president of the company’s senior vice president of Product Management Raj Talluri The Verge told today that although Qualcomm focuses more on delivery of products to refute the benchmarks of the competition, who still believe that the processor easily exceeds 800 Snapdragon Tegra 4.

Nvidia said supply can be impressive, but the 800 series chip is much more integrated, probably because it has a built-in LTE modem silicon wafer. The new part Snapdragon can also encode and decode 4K content as evidenced by a publishing demo shown on the site. If you’ve ever tried to run a 4K video on your computer, you’re likely aware of how tiring it can be.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 is already in line for more than 50 upcoming products. The chip of 2.3 GHz quad-core are expected to appear in several devices later this year. If you remember, the 600 series chip is just around the corner with phones like the HTC and LG Optimus One G Pro set to release soon. This year is definitely preparing to be exciting for fans of hardcore mobile.

Snapdragon 800 devices to feature Quick Charge 2.0, Voice Activation

Qualcomm Snapdragon processor details his next 800 at CES last month, but apparently I left a couple of key features in secret. Now, with Mobile World Congress just around the corner, the company is willing to share a little more with a blog post announcing 2.0 load faster and voice activation.

The first of these features is the natural evolution of the fast charge current 1.0 Qualcomm technology available on Snapdragon devices like the Galaxy S III, Nexus 4, and 920 Lumia. In short, the version 2.0 is said to load devices 75% faster than those without the technology, an improvement over the 40% figure announced by Qualcomm for quick load 1.0. The technology requires a charger optimized and baked at 800 Snapdragon, but is not exclusive of hardware-based Qualcomm. 2.0 Fast charging will be offered as a separate circuit for other companies to use and could charge even more demanding laptops up to 60W of power.

To put things in perspective Qualcomm says its own laboratory tests showing tablets usually have more than 7 hours to charge were able to reach full charge in less than 3 hours with 2.0 fast charge.

In addition, the company announced that devices using Snapdragon processor 800 will always be in a low-power voice activation feature that allows users to wake up your phone with a personalized voice command. The feature is said to be adapted to the voice of each device owner and works even in standby mode or plane. Once the device is “awakened” function will activate your phone’s voice assistant for hands-free control.

Qualcomm says that there are currently more than 55,800 development Snapdragon-based devices, with hardware expected to land sometime in the second half of 2013 or early 2014.

Xperia Z’s camera burst mode captures 999 images in 68 seconds


Sony Xperia Z already has an impressive list of specifications and features. This is an Android smartphone powered by a 1.5GHz Snapdragon with Adreno 320 S4 Pro GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and is both dust and water resistant.The cameras are also quite impressive, with a 13mp camera Exynos RS rear and 2.1MP Exmor R camera front. You are sure to get good quality video chats and capture still images, but the Xperia Z has an ace up its sleeve: Explosion mode.As the video above shows, the 13mp rear facing camera can be configured to quickly capture hundreds of images. It is advertised as being able to capture 10 frames per second at a resolution 9MP. But in the video, manages 999 images in 68 seconds, which is north of 14 frames per second.This feature will definitely give you a wide choice when it comes to selecting the best shot, but you have the option to capture some fast action in great detail for later playback. If Sony can easily enable this form in a 60-second video, I’m sure you would see a number of them appearing on YouTube if you’re caught worth sharing.Capturing images in many 9MP storage will fill very quickly, however. Therefore, it will not be a feature used repeatedly without dumping the images to a cloud store or PC hard drive.The Sony Xperia Z appears very soon, but we hope to be released sometime in March.
