During its conference Qualcomm Tech Summit, the mobile processor maker announced a big news: in the future, graphics updates (GPU) will be sent through the Google Play Store. This is a way to facilitate the upgrade process, which previously had to be approved by carriers for the United States.
The truth is that manufacturers (Huawei, Samsung, Xiaomi, etc.) will have to do tests on it before allowing the upgrade in the store. By cutting operator approval, however, Qualcomm is speeding up and easing the process for all parties involved.
This decision by Qualcomm was also influenced by Project Mainline, included in Android 10. Mainline allows Android components to be updated through the Play Store, just like apps and games.
Project Mainline also has the advantage of allowing quick distribution of bug fixes and security updates. As Google Play Store is the service most commonly used on Android phones, these changes make perfect sense.
Snapdragon 865 and 765 will be the first to debut
Importantly, processors released prior to Tech Summit will not have updates through the Google Play Store. For now, only the Snapdragon 865 and 765 can boast of such novelty.
Presented during the Qualcomm Tech Summit, the Snapdragon 865 and 765 are the next bets of the American manufacturer. Snapdragon is a state-of-the-art 7 nanometer lithograph processor, allowing for faster speeds and energy efficiency than any previous CPU.
Snapdragon 765, on the other hand, is a processor ready to equip medium to high range mobile phones. One of the great points of interest of this new CPU is its 5G support, which will enable average equipment to have mobile data technology.
