Snapdragon 888: the miracle for photography and video on smartphones

We have major improvements in camera performance on next-generation Android smartphones using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 platform. The generational leap will be considerable and will bring great benefits to the user.

The speed in tasks and applications will be equally noticeable, but it is in computational photography that we will focus on this exhibition. According to Qualcomm, the new image signal processor – ISP – will make all the difference.

Computer photography with the Snapdragon 888

The new SoC (System-on-a-Chip) adds a third chip, or processing module that gives high-end smartphones the ability to manage three signals (feeds) of video simultaneously, all at maximum Ultra-HD or 4K resolution with HDR.

At the same time, for photography, the new chip now uses artificial intelligence (AI) to assist in the process of focusing images and adjusting brightness / exposure in captures. The revelations were made by Judd Heape, vice president of product management at North American Qualcomm.

The processor’s capabilities for image and video capture were unveiled during the presentation event for the new chip, Qualcomm’s major contribution to keeping the Android market competitive and interested users.

The competition will be, above all, with the Apple iPhone and the A14 Bionic processor, also built with the 5 nanometer lithography, the most advanced standard to date.

Photography is a priority for users

Photography and video are two of the main selling points in high-end smartphones. For manufacturers, the photographic sector is one of the points where major innovations have been made and new functions have been introduced. For the user, they are new content creation tools that are much appreciated and used in real life.

In other words, the photographic argument is the main selling point of new smartphones, convincing users to periodically change their devices. Aware of this, Qualcomm introduced the new Spectra 580 chip.

In practice, smartphones with the Snapdragon 888 processor will be able to handle more processes simultaneously, processing up to 2.7 billion pixels per second. This consists of a great leap and increment for computational photography.

Video capture on the new Snapdragon 888

One of the strengths of the new SoC is the possibility to capture and process video from three sources simultaneously. Something that will take advantage of the standard, ultra-wide-angle and telephoto cameras that became popular on smartphones in 2020.

By guaranteeing this support, manufacturers will now be able to consider and develop new applications for this possibility. What will result from this is, for now, totally unknown, but we have new creative tools for users.

Qualcomm’s SoC race is launched

Qualcomm produces chips, components and semiconductors, not smartphones. So it’s now up to the major manufacturers like Samsung, Xiaomi, LG, Sony, Google and other OEMs to take advantage of the new processor to mobile.

It should be noted that the improvements go beyond image processing, also and especially 5G. With the latest Qualcomm modem guaranteeing extended support for 5G networks, with lower energy consumption.

Finally, we do not yet know exactly how fast the processor will be in next generation smartphones. Then we will have a reliable comparison margin with Apple’s offer and its A14 Bionic.
