Qualcomm is the brand behind Snapdragon processors, that we see in most phones that are launched in Spain, today in the Moto G 5G Plus, for example. The company continues to expand its product range, now with the introduction of two new system-on-chips (SoCs) that are going to bring high-end photography to cheap mobiles.
The brand leaves us with Qualcomm QCS610 and QCS410, than arrive inside the Vision Intelligence platform of the firm. These chips have been designed to offer a Premium camera technology, including high-end machine intelligence and machine learning features on cheap phones in the mid-range. An initiative similar to Google’s Pixel Visual Core, to improve cameras.
New Snapdragon 690, 5G for cheap mobiles
The new Snapdragon 690 processor is already here, and it promises to bring 5G to mid-range phones, in addition to having great performance.
Qualcomm improves photography in the mid-range
These Qualcomm QCS610 and QSC410 SoC are a high performance IoT System-on-Chip (SoC) that offers premium features, designed to bring photography from the high range to the mid-range on Android. Thanks to them, features such as machine learning, voice UI enablement, wireless connectivity, sensor processing and more are introduced to these phones.
In the case of this QSC610 we also have 4K Ultra HD video recording support, with 4K video playback at 30 fps. It also has support for combinations of double camera up to 16 Mpx or single camera up to 24 Mpx. In the case of the QSC410, the video support remains in 1080p at 30 fps in both capture and playback. And in the case of the camera support, only the single camera changes, in its case it remains at 21 Mpx.
They are designed to give good camera processing and machine learning. This is possible because it integrates a powerful Image Signal Processor (ISP) and Qualcomm’s own artificial intelligence (AI) engine, along with a heterogeneous computing architecture that includes highly optimized custom CPU, GPU, and DSP for performance. accelerated AI. Additionally, they both feature the brand’s Noise and Echo Cancellation technology, as well as advanced in-device audio processing and analysis capabilities that support natural language processing, audio and voice recognition.
A way to get a quality photograph without increasing the price of the devices. Their production begins already, allowing manufacturers to already contact Qualcomm itself to use them on their devices. We do not know yet which brands will use them, although surely more will be known soon.
