Back in September 2011 we brought you the news that Qualcomm was looking to release a 2.5GHz Quad Core Snapdragon processor in 2012. Now ahead of the Mobile World Congress, Qualcomm has now unveiled and demonstrated their new Snapdragon S4 processor imaging features. We already knew that the S4 is the first mobile processor built using a 28nm process and the first to integrate 4G LTE.
But what hasn’t been known are the finer details of the new Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor and what it will mean to mobile users when it rolls out in to the main stream. Watch the videos below for a more in-depth run-through of what you can expect from the Snapdragon S4 imaging and cameras equipped with it.
With Qualcomms’ Snapdragon S4 processor, any mobile device will be able to shoot up to 20 Megapixel stills, as well as 1080p (30fps) video capture and up to 3 cameras, the third can be used for 3D capture, if required. Qualcomm explains:
“The S4 ISP also comes equipped with Qualcomm’s proprietary 3A camera technology (Autofocus, Auto Exposure and Auto White Balance), enabling practical camera applications such as blink detection, smile degree, and gaze estimation. Other advanced features that tap into the ISP include active “Range-Finding”, zero shutter lag, and image stabilization.”
