A few days ago in Hawaii at Snapdragon Technology Summit, Qualcomm Spectro 380 was launched.
The Qualcomm Spectra 380 is going to get rid of bottlenecks in the image processing pipeline and will improve the power savings up to 4x as compared to previous ones by doing machine vision processing right on the ISP itself, removing the need to turn on the CPU, GPU, and HSP for complex photography AI tasks, and greatly improving the processor’s AR capabilities.
This means that features such as hardware depth sensing, object classification, and object segmentation all can be done in real life for up to 4k HDR 60Hz on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855.
AI and AR aren’t the only improvements made for the Qualcomm Spectra 380.
Qualcomm has put a lot of effort into improvement brightness and color space, adding support for full HDR10+ video recording, making it easy to make videos with a great variety of range and wider color spaces, to take full advantage of the capabilities of modern phones and TVs.
The Qualcomm Spectra 380 has also the ability to support the higher resolution images than last years, with its dual 14-bit CV-ISP pipeline supporting 22MP 30Hz concurrent capture on dual cameras, and 48MP 30Hz capture with a single image sensor.
