Literally uses a curtain
Last week at CES 2017 we noticed that Intel felt so unsecure about itself that it used a big curtain to hide the Qualcomm logo from the booth next door. This really happened and we were lucky to document it.
Very high interest
Qualcomm shared with us a few interesting facts about the Snapdragon 835. You can expect that many high-end smartphones will end up with this chip inside, as industry players are very interested.
Scores world’s biggest car manufacturer
One of the most surprising announcements at the CES 2017 show was the announcement from both Volkswagen and Qualcomm that these two companies will work together on the connectivity of VW cars as well as on the way to implement the Qualcomm self-driving Snapdragon 820A platform in future cars.
Snapdragon 835 vs Snapdragon 820
Keith Kressin, senior VP of product management at Qualcomm, told the world that the Snapdragon 835 has 25 percent better graphics compared to Snapdragon 820.
A leaked TuTu benchmark shows Qualcomm’s superiority
A new AnTuTu benchmark for Snapdragon 835 has been leaked online ahead of Qualcomm's announcement at CES 2017.
The way of things to come
Slides of Windows 10 running on an ARM device powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 have tipped up before they are shown at CES 2017 this week.
VR, AR, AI mobile speeds of 1.8 Gbps
T-Mobile US is talking a lot about network un-carrier innovations including 4G advanced features such as 4x4 MIMO, QAM 256 and QAM 64 but it looks like the company is working hard on 5G too. T-Mobile has already demonstrated mobile speeds of 1.8 Gbps and fixed speeds of 12 Gbps with latency of 2ns. Things look to be much faster and seamless in 2017 and the years to come, Happy New 2017 Year, that gets us a step closer to that.
4×4 MIMO and QAM 256 are the first step in the USA
Back in September, T-Mobile in the US announced that it supports 4×4 MIMO as well as QAM 256 on the download and QAM 64 on the upload side. The first phone to get this support was the Samsung Galaxy S7 and it looks like in 2017, T mobile will get you to 1Gbps class speeds or speeds up to 979 Mbps.
Hitting tablets, notebooks and phones near you
Qualcomm is tweeting a lot about Snapdragon 835 and it looks like that the company is ready to reveal a lot of details. Expect to see more about the Snapdragon 835, some Windows 10 design wins, quick charge, camera as well as VR related announcements.
