Qualcomm Technologies Introduces Qualcomm® Snapdragon(TM) Smart Protect

Qualcomm Incorporated announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. is extending its mobile security technology leadership with the introduction of Qualcomm® Snapdragon(TM) Smart Protect. The upcoming Qualcomm® Snapdragon 820 processor is the first platform offering Snapdragon Smart Protect, providing real-time, on-device machine learning designed to support accurate and effective detection of zero-day malware threats for improved personal privacy and device security. Snapdragon Smart Protect is also the first application to utilize Qualcomm® Zeroth(TM) technology, augmenting conventional anti-malware solutions by supporting on device real-time malware detection, classification and cause analysis using an advanced cognitive computing behavioral engine. Snapdragon Smart Protect complements existing signature-based anti-malware solutions by analyzing and identifying new threats prior to new signature updates. OEMs and mobile anti-malware application providers can also use Snapdragon Smart Protect API's to perform valuable causal analysis, offering users and the mobile industry real-time information of identified threats.

Qualcomm Announces Introduction of New Marshall Smartphone

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. has announced that Marshall Headphones has created a smartphone, the Marshall London, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with Hi-Fi audio support, designed with music in mind. As a member of the Marshall Headphones family, the London is outfitted with sleek brass details and matte black accents. Hatch designs and pebbling on its back surface are designed to look like the company's classic guitar amps, but also provide better grip. At the top of the London sits a golden M-button that gives instant access to music when pressed. The handset features two front-facing speakers and two audio outputs, allowing two people to listen to music simultaneously and at different volume levels. Users can precisely control the volume with the London's gilded scroll wheel on the smartphone's right side. If musical inspiration strikes and can record on the go with the London's built-in stereo microphone and noise-reduction technology. It can play a variety of formats-including uncompressed FLAC files-to playback at a higher resolution. And with Marshall Mode in-ear headphones included in the set, users can immerse themselves in powerful bass lines and crystal-clear melodies. The London has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 2,500mAh removable battery. Capture acoustic jam sessions or impromptu music videos on the smartphone's 8-megapixel camera and watch them on the London's 4.7-inch, 720p display. Priced at 4,995 Swedish krona about $590 the London is set to be available in 22 countries, with delivery expected at the end of September.

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. Introduces its Next-Generation Visual Processing Technology with New Versions of its Graphics Processing Unit and Image Signal Processing Unit

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. has introduced its next-generation visual processing technology with new versions of its graphics processing unit (GPU) and image signal processing (ISP) unit, to deliver significant advancements in performance, power efficiency and user experience to Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors. The new Qualcomm® Adreno™ 5xx GPU architecture delivers increased speed and efficiency over the previous generation and supports stunning high-definition mobile graphics while introducing general-purpose compute co-processing for exceptionally low power consumption. The first two GPUs available on the new architecture, the Adreno 530 and Adreno 510, will be available integrated within the forthcoming Snapdragon 820 and Snapdragon 620/618 processors. In addition, Snapdragon 820 will also debut the new 14-bit Qualcomm Spectra™ image signal processing (ISP) unit, designed to support superior DSLR-quality photography and enhanced computer vision. Devices based on Snapdragon 820 are expected to be available in the first half of 2016. Designed for scalability, the Adreno 5xx architecture is the foundation of Qualcomm Technologies' next-generation custom GPUs and is the successor to the Adreno 4xx family. Newly integrated within the Snapdragon 820, the Adreno 530 is the highest-performance GPU ever designed by Qualcomm Technologies, providing superior experiences with: up to 40% lower power consumption and 40 percent faster performance for both graphics and GPGPU compute when compared to the Adreno 430; capabilities in graphics and compute APIs including OpenGL ES 3.1+AEP (Android Extension Pack), Renderscript, as well as the new OpenCL 2.0 and Vulkan standards. Vulkan minimizes driver overhead and enables multi-threaded performance on mobile and embedded platforms; support for 64-bit virtual addressing, allowing for shared virtual memory (SVM) and efficient co-processing with 64 bit CPUs; improved fine-grain power management, new rendering, compositing and compression techniques to enable higher performance at lower power consumption and reduced DRAM bandwidth; up to 4K HEVC video support at 60fps over HDMI 2.0 to Rec. 2020 ultra-high definition (UHD) displays and TVs; improved Qualcomm® EcoPix™ and Qualcomm® TruPalette™ support for longer battery life and superior pixel quality; and software compatibility between Adreno 530 and Adreno 510. Introduced with the Snapdragon 820, Qualcomm Spectra ISP is Qualcomm Technologies' most advanced dual-imaging signal processing unit to-date, integrated and designed to provide best-in-class camera image quality and end-user benefits, including: superior image quality, with more natural skin tones via advanced, 14-bit dual ISPs supporting up to 3 simultaneous cameras (e.g. one facing the user, and two rear facing), and up to 25 megapixels at 30 frames per-second with zero shutter lag; improved photos with Qualcomm Spectra ISP's flexible hybrid autofocus framework and multi-sensor fusion algorithms supporting next generation computational photography; improved power efficiency when compared to previous generations, better noise immunity and higher throughput via advanced compression techniques and use of the latest MIPI serial C-PHY interface; and next generation Computer Vision and other use cases via direct-to-DSP raw bayer data streaming and pre-processing capabilities.
