Qualcomm has introduced Snapdragon 710 Mobile platform designed with highly efficient architectures for artificial intelligence, featuring a multi-core AI Engine and neural network processing capabilities.
“The Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform is the first in the newly defined and highly significant 700-tier, offering technologies and features previously only available in our premium-tier mobile platforms,” said Kedar Kondap, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies.
“By incorporating key AI capabilities and performance advancements, the Snapdragon 710 is designed to transform our customers products into the ultimate personal assistant, enhancing critical everyday consumer experiences, such as high-end camera features that will benefit from on-device high-speed AI processing, without sacrificing battery life,” commented Kondap.
The new platform transforms the smartphone into a customized experience for users across camera and voice, powered by a multi-core AI Engine, delivering up to 2X overall performance improvements in AI applications, as compared to Snapdragon 660.
The new Qualcomm Spectra 250 ISP supports enhancements in capturing professional-grade quality photos and videos with superior low light photography, noise reduction, fast autofocus, image stabilization, smooth zoom and real-time bokeh effects.
The Snapdragon 710 features 4K HDR playback for viewing HDR videos and apps – also a first outside the premium 800-tier. The addition of 4K HDR playback brings greater brightness, wider color gamut and color depth to the Snapdragon 710, resulting in enhanced visual quality when viewing 4K HDR supported content over the most popular video streaming services.
The Snapdragon 710 features the new Snapdragon X15 LTE modem, a Category 15 LTE modem that supports up to 800 Mbps download speeds.
The Snapdragon 710 also offers an advanced suite of wireless technologies including cutting edge Wi-Fi features and enhanced Bluetooth 5 multicast audio with support for ultra-low power wireless earbuds.
The Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform is available today and is expected to be found in consumer devices in the second quarter of 2018.
