Premium Android smartphones in 2018 that will be engineered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip is expected to deliver supreme quality photos. The said chipset promises a brighter and more saturated video with colors that appear much more “real.” Additionally, there are other reasons why the upcoming chipset from Qualcomm will surely give its patrons amazing shots.


The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset promises to shoot video quality a step further. This will be possible with the help of Ultra HD Premium video capture, which is also known as HDR for TVs.

What a user will be getting with Ultra HD Premium is an enormous hit of color. There will be a 64x rise in the shades users will be capable of viewing. It can be recalled that phones powered by the Snapdragon 835 chip deliver 16.7 million shades of color. In the Snapdragon 845 will let the users capture video with over 1 billion shades.

Apart from that, the Snapdragon 845 will also bring color depth or deep color. This is an absolute leap forward which will happen by increasing the number of bits of data users get for each primary color. Qualcomm used to utilize 8 bits, but the Ultra HD Premium standard utilizes 10. In addition, users will also get 97 percent more color range, which means their device’s camera, can now capture new colors it couldn’t before.

The smartphones which are armed with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chip already has support Ultra HD Premium playback. This basically means that they could watch HDR content that other people created on Netflix, Amazon and YouTube HDR. Meanwhile, with the Snapdragon 845, they will be capable of making these videos and watch it in an improved video on their HDR TV.

Brighter video

Luminance denotes the amount of brightness and darkness a user’s video recording can record. It was also included in the standard for Ultra HD Premium, more luminance means that more colorful video will come out which are much brighter than before. This is all part of changing the video capture experience.

With this, many will think that increasing brightness will drain the battery faster. But then, Qualcomm claims that the 30 percent more battery proficiency in the Snapdragon 845 chip will alleviate any battery tax here.

Videos and stills, combined

Qualcomm calls it ImMotion, a form of computational processing that takes a part of the photo as video while the rest is still motionless. It’s not quite live photo because, in that method, the whole picture only moves for three seconds. In this case, only a single part of the photo obtains life.

Active depth-sensing

The cameras on smartphones that will be armed with Snapdragon 845 will be able to act a lot more like Apple’s new iPhone X with Face ID unlocking. That technology is due to a process that is called active depth-sensing.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip will be using up to 50,000 points of infrared light to make a point map. But then, using it to unlock the device isn’t the only advantage of a depth-sensing camera. With this technology, users can now track their hands in VR, which basically means they wouldn’t have to utilize costly, bulky controllers.

Smartphones that might be engineered by Snapdragon 845

Xioami already revealed that it will be using the Snapdragon 845 chipset to its Xiaomi Mi 7 flagship handset. Samsung Galaxy S9 might also be powered by this processor. Motorola, LG and OnePlus’ flagship devices might also have this powerful upcoming chips from Qualcomm.

These are the possible enhancements that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 might bring. What do you think of these improvements? Please share your viewpoints in our comments section below.
