Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), today announced that its premium mobile platform is powering Samsung’s latest and most sophisticated flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S8, for select regions. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 Mobile Platform, featuring the first commercial SoC manufactured using 10nm FinFET technology, and which integrates the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem. This powerful platform allows the Galaxy S8 to support Gigabit LTE, for fiber-optic Internet speeds on the go, and more consistent mobile data performance in more places. The Galaxy S8 is the first smartphone to feature Qualcomm® TruSignal™ adaptive antenna tuning technology for carrier aggregation, designed to deliver a more consistent voice and data experience, indoors and outdoors.The Snapdragon 835 is roughly 35 percent smaller in package size and consumes roughly 25 percent less power compared to the previous generation flagship processor, which equates to longer battery life and a thinner design.The processor also supports next-generation immersive entertainment experiences, such as mobile virtual reality (VR), with leading edge still and video capture.

“We are proud to continue our long and productive collaboration with Samsung to help bring the most advanced mobile experiences, such as Gigabit LTE and mobile VR, to consumers with the new Samsung Galaxy S8,” said Alex Katouzian, senior vice president and general manager, mobile, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Featuring a thin and light design with superior battery life, immersive multimedia, and exceptional photography with Gigabit LTE speeds, the Samsung Galaxy S8 powered by the Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform delivers the experiences today’s mobile users demand.”

 

The Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform offers improved processing power and performance with the new Qualcomm® Kryo™ 280 CPU and Qualcomm® Hexagon™ 682 DSP, and is designed to simultaneously meet the high performance demands, thermal limits and power efficiency constraints of the next-generation VR designs, like the Samsung Gear VR for Galaxy S8. Snapdragon 835 delivers up to a 25 percent increase in 3D graphics rendering performance with the Qualcomm® Adreno™ 540 GPU compared to Adreno 530. Snapdragon 835 also supports object and scene-based 3D audio as well as visually immersive 4K Ultra HD premium (HDR10) video, that enables the Samsung Galaxy S8 to play HDR movies and other types of videos from major content publishers. At the core of the capture experience is the Qualcomm Spectra™ 180 ISP, featuring dual 14-bit ISPs that supports the Galaxy S8 8MP front camera and 12MP rear camera for the ultimate photography and ultra-high definition videography experience. Both still and video capture experiences are enhanced with advanced auto-focus technologies along with HDR true-to-life colors and perceptual quantization video encoding.  The Snapdragon 835 also features the Qualcomm Haven™ security platform with enhanced security for biometrics and device attestation, which can be experienced in the Galaxy S8. The Galaxy S8’s signal performance, power efficiency and thermal performance are enhanced by an advanced RF front-end which includes Qualcomm Technologies’ envelope tracker, impedance tuner, diversity receive modules, aperture tuners, low-noise amplifiers, extractor and BAW filter.

 

“We value the long history of collaboration that we share with Qualcomm Technologies, and are excited to work with them on the Galaxy S8, the mobile industry’s first smartphone based on 10nm FinFET process technology to be available to consumers,” said Robert Kim, vice president, product strategy team, mobile communications business, Samsung Electronics. “Doing so provides our customers with a best-in-class mobile experience, which includes the most advanced features in connectivity, immersion, machine learning and security.”
