San Francisco, Dec 1 (IANS) Kicking off a premium era for 5G smartphones and other devices, chip maker Qualcomm on Tuesday unveils the much-anticipated Snapdragon 888 5G mobile platform.

Snapdragon 888 has the potential to triple down on the future of computational photography and transform smartphones into professional quality cameras.

With the faster gigapixel speed Qualcomm Spectra ISP, users can capture photos and videos at 2.7 gigapixels per second or roughly 120 photos at 12MP resolution — up to 35 per cent faster than the previous generation.

“Creating premium experiences takes a relentless focus on innovation. It takes long term commitment, even in the face of immense uncertainty,” said Cristiano Amon, president, Qualcomm Incorporated.

“It takes an organisation that’s focused on tomorrow, to continue to deliver the technologies that redefine premium experiences,” he said during the first day of the Qualcomm Tech Summit Digital.

The chipset houses the third generation Qualcomm Snapdragon X60 5G Modem-RF System, enabling global compatibility by offering mmWave and sub-6 across all major bands worldwide.

It also offers support for 5G carrier aggregation, global multi-SIM, stand alone, non-stand alone, and Dynamic Spectrum Sharing.

According to Lekha Motiwala, director of product management for Qualcomm Technologies, the new sixth generation Qualcomm AI Engine, with the completely re-engineered Qualcomm Hexagon processor, takes a pivotal leap forward in AI compared to the previous generation to improve performance, power efficiency in the Snapdragon 888 chipset.

“The platform is further enhanced by the 2nd generation Qualcomm Sensing Hub, which incorporates lower-power always-on AI processing for intuitive, intelligent features,” Motiwala added.
