The new chip offers a clearer sound by using Qualcomm Aqstic’s Echo Cancellation and Noise Suppression (ECNS) technology to focus on sounds in the user’s environment. Furthermore, it is compatible with high-resolution camera modules up to 32MP for video recording up to 4K HDR.

Utilizing Qualcomm’s AI engine, the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G platform will support accelerated AI experiences on the PC. It will also deliver great AI performance with superior power efficiency than other solutions without a dedicated AI engine.

Some examples of AI applications are simulated eye contact video conferencing. Using which the person’s eyes are tracked to appear to be looking at the camera. AI can also be used for faster device threat identification without sending data to the cloud.

Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G powered devices also support dual 4K displays via a single Type-C cable to a dock. Allowing for maximum flexibility and productivity. The Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G computing platform is likely to be in commercial devices by the end of 2020. Two Qualcomm partners, Acer and HP, have confirmed the launch of devices with this chip.
