Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 SoC chipset is a revolutionary design, building on previous generations with enhanced CPU, GPU, and cellular modem capabilities that are expected to propel it for use in the next generation of ARM-based mobile devices. One of the more impressive features is its integration of the Snapdragon X6 LTE modem, giving it Gigabit LTE speeds while connected to networks offering 4GX support such as Telstra's Australian cellular network. Qualcomm expects the power of its Snapdragon 835 SoC chipset to act as a disruptive force in the ARM-based cellar mobile device sphere with handsets and tablets to be announced starting in the second half of 2017. It integrates superior compute, graphics, and image processing capabilities compared with previous generation of the Snapdragon mobile chipset, enabling devices using the chipset to support Augmented / Virtual Reality applications as well as machine learning-type processing. Design-wise, the 835 chipset is 35% smaller than previous generations, thanks to its 10nm design, also making it 25% more power efficient even with its enhanced compute, GPU, and mobile speed capabilities.
