Qualcomm Snapdragon VR 820: Reference Platform for Virtual Reality

Qualcomm has presented its new reference platform for virtual reality at the IFA 2016: Snapdragon VR 820. The manufacturer is based on its own SoC Snapdragon 820, which is in current high-end smartphones such as the LG G5 or the HTC 10. The reference platform is designed to enable partners to quickly develop virtual reality glasses. Qualcomm also points out that “OEMs can also develop HMDs (Head Mounted Displays) that are optimized for VR content and applications while providing the performance of an all-in-one VR headset.”

Therefore, Qualcomm is moving forward in the field of Virtual Reality. For Snapdragon VR820, we worked together with Goertek. For example, the Eye-Tracking reference models incorporate two cameras, two additional front cameras, four microphones, an accelerometer, a gyroscope and a magnetometer. The GPU Adreon 530 provides graphics performance. The screens come at a resolution of 1,440 x 1,440 pixels per eye. An AMOLED panel with up to 70 Hz is used. Also to 360 ° and / or 4K-Videos and the codec HEVC is Qualcomms Snapdragon VR820 compatible.

Qualcomm plans to offer its VR reference platform Snapdragon VR820 partners from the fourth quarter of 2016. The first VR headsets, which are based on the platform, should be available soon afterwards. In addition, however, the manufacturer has also announced a cooperation with Fossil. Together, the two companies want to craft smartwatches based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear. First results are available: The Fossqil Q Marshal and Fossil Q Wander will be operated by Qualcomm’s second-generation Snapdragon Wear 2100 processors.

For home cinemas, Qualcomm also has something new in store, namely the Kombichip. This supports, for example, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac and Bluetooth 4.2. Here, too, Qualcomm offers a reference platform for media boxes for ultra-HD playback, and once again sets the Snapdragon 820. Both solutions are generally suitable for set-top boxes, smart TVs and other streaming devices.
