The company that makes chips for top Android phones announced its new model - here's what it means for Android phones in 2018
Timing-wise, Qualcomm expects the chip's release as soon as 2018, so we could potentially see the next generation of top Android devices from Samsung, Google, LG, HTC, and others running on the new Snapdragon 845 next year.
As expected, the chip should bring general improvements to performance and battery life. It'll also allow Android phone makers to improve photo and video capture quality, as well as improving the functionality of AR, VR, and mixed-reality applications. Smart AI assistants, like Google's Assistant, will also get an intelligence boost.Check out what we can expect from Snapdragon 845-powered Android phones:
