It’s designed to deliver an industry-leading suite of capabilities, including unmatched camera and sound performance, AI-enhanced experiences, desktop-level gaming features, and vault-like security.
Across all tiers, Snapdragon technology drives premium mobile experiences. We’re working closely with a wide range of manufacturers to create customized solutions that utilize our leading technology for power, performance, and connectivity (both 5G and Wi-Fi 6/6E).
Packed with technologies designed to deliver premium experiences
When it comes to the mobile industry, one platform is becoming synonymous with setting the standard for premium experiences: Snapdragon 8. The 7th gen Qualcomm AI Engine is our fastest available — up to 4x faster than the previous generation — and it’s the first mobile platform to bring CD lossless audio with Snapdragon Sound technology. Snapdragon Sight technology puts a professional-grade camera in your pocket, giving your images unparalleled sharpness and clarity. Snapdragon 8 was also the first mobile platform to include 8K HDR video capture, transforming amateur cinematographers into professionals.
Combine all these features with support for all-day battery life, and it’s easy to see why demand is exploding for Snapdragon. We’re incredibly proud of the industry’s response to Snapdragon 8 Gen 1: The platform was recently awarded the Innovative Breakthrough in Mobile Technology Award at the GTI Awards 2022 for not only its innovation, but also its sustainability, impacts on technology, and industry potential.
