What You Can Expect from Qualcomm's SD845 Chip

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chip, the successor to the 835 SoC, is shaping up to be a very promising SoC. people could have a better music listening experience with this newest chip. The new chipset is supposed to be at least 25% faster, and 30% more efficient than the outgoing model.


The Snapdragon 845 chipset can do piles of things better than before. There are two features catching my eyes. The first one is that it would reduce battery consumption of wireless headphones and speakers, while the second one is that it could stream music via Bluetooth 5.0, to two devices simultaneously. This new chip is designed to please audiophiles and users that love to stream and listen to music using wireless earbuds or headphones for long periods.


Currently, most Bluetooth headphones rely on transmission of stereo audio from your phone to one of the two headphones. That’s then responsible for streaming to the other half of the headphone pair. What Qualcomm is doing is transmitting to both headphones individually: that, the chip-maker says, could result in up to 50% lower power consumption.


Qualcomm’s new invention eliminates the need for an in-between piece of hardware to rebroadcast the signal between two speakers or buds. In effect, the simultaneous relay of Bluetooth signals reduces power drain for the target wireless speakers or earbuds.


Specifically, it can enable a single device, such as your phone, to connect and send audio to multiple Bluetooth devices simultaneously. That supports not only HD quality music streaming, but live audio, too. For instance, a tour guide could use their phone, transmitting information to multiple people in the group listening on Bluetooth headphones. With new wireless earbuds, though, it could deliver big improvements in how long you can listen before you recharge.


Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chip meets the need of plenty of tech geeks and audiophile. To satisfy our customer’s need, Mixcder would keep researching and developing new Bluetooth headphones using the Snapdragon 845 chip as soon as possible.
