techno.rentetan.com – The first Snapdragon die-hards phone of Qualcomm is designed. Any takeers? Any takeers?

Qualcomm makes the chips found on almost every Android phone, but the company leaves its usual role today. Qualcomm announces its first telephone with some assistance from Asus.

The first phone of Qualcomm is actually less of an IPhone or a Galaxy rival and more a showcase for Qualcomm technology for the social media audience of Qualcomm – particularly those that follow the different Snapdragon channels throughout the world. Officially, the phone is named for Snapdragon Insiders (what actually rolloves out),

This is a very small group, and while Qualcomm claims that there are about 1.6 million Snapdragon Insiders around the world, the numbers alone on Apple’s Twitter accounts do not seem as impressive, even if there is never actually a real tweet. (Technically payable ads are all “tweets” from Apple so they do not appear on its twitter ticket as tweets or replies.) In the meantime, there are more than 12 million followers of the Samsung Mobile Twitter account.

Smartphone is also unusual for Snapdragon Insiders because Qualcomm does not actually make consumer phones (besides a few reference devices), so Asus had to help the company put this together. What we really see is a phone full of Qualcomm technology, but with some sophisticated Snapdragon badges scattered around its body, put together, sold and supported by Asus.

What you must really know is that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Telephone will cost $1,500 more than any unfoldable phone from Samsung or Apple. That said, Qualcomm threw in a couple of accessories, so let’s take a closer look at the money you get.

The Snapdragon handset itself comes with a processor Snapdragon 888 (not the latest Snapdragon 888+) with a 2448 x 1080 6,78-inch AMOLED display with a replenishment rate of 144 Hz, 16 GB of RAM and storage rate of 512 GB and a 4,000 mAh battery. A 24 MP camera will be available and three in the back of the car: a 64 MP primary camera, a 12 MP ultra wide cam and a 3x optical zoom, which may be used simultaneously in both photos and videos. The camera will be equipped with an 8 MP auto camera.

Also, Qualcomm aims to demonstrate its Snapdragon Sound as well as rapid wireless connectivity, which means that the phone also supports WiFi 6 and WiFi 6E with some of the widest available mobile data support. And the Snapdragon handset is naturally compatible with all major 5G variants.

Far from it, Snapdragon has no wireless charging for this expensively expensive handset, although you get the Sonic 2D 3D fingerprint sensors of Qualcomm, but it is on the back of the phone, just above the light-UP Snapdragon logo in Qualcomm, rather than an in screen sensor.

Now you’re not alone if it does not sound like a $1,500 phone. In order to satisfy the deal, Qualcomm has a number of extra features in the package, including a USB C braided cable, a tailor-made rubber buffer, a power brick Qualcomm Quick Charge 5 and most importantly a special edition Master and Dynamic MW08SI Snapdragon branded, wireless earbuddy version, which usually shop for $300 on their own.

I’ve heard Master and Dynamic’s MW08SI are excellent, so at least that’s a bonus.

Now, these extras are supposed to take some of the price tag of the $1,500 telephone, but there’s a major question: what about this? Mike Roberts, marketing leader of Qualcomm, said Qualcomm does not try to compete directly with other OEMs because Snapdragon Insiders actually use the phone. Looking at the launch of Snapdragon Podcast by Qualcoms other recent fan building efforts, this general sentiment is true, because Qualcomm continues to strive to build an audience of mobile chip lovers, probably to reflect (sometimes) the rabid fanbases we see for companies such as AMD, Intel and Nvidia.

However, it’s a bit strange, because the average user can’t pick a mobile processor from the shelf and install it on the phone, unlike desktop CPUs or GPUs. Customers can mainly choose which type of silicon their handsets use at the whims of device manufacturers like Samsung, Google or Apple.

Asus is responsible for the actual retail sales, user support, and future updates (snapdragon telephones are running a relatively stock Android 11), it feels Qualcomm is still far from creating something he can really call his or her own. This makes the phone snapdragon superfluous. Rumor has it that next year Qualcomm can release his own Nintendo Switch version, so the giant chip can use a Snapdragon telephone to test the waters before it actually enters the consumer market.

Regardless, if you want to keep an eye on Qualcomm’s social channels today if your Smartphone for Snapdragon Insider strikes your fancy for some reason.
