Qualcomm has announced that the Snapdragon 835 mobile platform will power the inaugural premium flagship smartphone from Essential Products, the Essential Phone. The Snapdragon 835 is the first commercial SoC manufactured using 10nm FinFET technology, reducing its package size by up to 35 per cent and power usage by up to 25 per cent compared to the previous generation flagship processor, allowing more space to house the large 3040mAh battery and significantly improved battery life.
The SoC also features the latest generation of Qualcomm Adreno 540 GPU, which delivers up to 25 percent faster graphics rendering compared to Adreno 530, and allows users to enjoy a 360-degree visual capture experience.
The Essential Phone incorporates Qualcomm Clear Sight imaging technology, which is designed to mimic the attributes of the human eye and give your photos better dynamic range and sharpness while reducing low light noise. The Essential Phone utilizes two 13MP rear cameras, each with a different image sensor: one color image sensor and a separate black and white sensor, which allows it to produce images with optimal contrast and brightness.
The Snapdragon X16 LTE modem in the Snapdragon 835 gives Essential Mata the engine for fast upload and download speeds over 4G LTE, and superior signal quality with Qualcomm TruSignal dual-antenna technology for extended coverage. The Essential Phone also comes with a miniature 27W USB power delivery adaptor, providing users with incredibly fast recharge times without making compromises to battery safety.
