The U.S based chipmaker, Qualcomm, has unveiled the latest chip, touted as the Snapdragon 845 which was launched late last year. The new chip now is set to debut under the hood of a smartphone at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 tech show. We have already seen several benchmarks that closely indicate this particular processor to apparently be better than Apple’s A11. And much to the knowledge of previous reports, it packs a lot of new things to be excited about when it comes to camera support, graphics, as well as, AI processing.
If one thought that this is everything to know about the latest Snapdragon chip, then one is definitely mistaken. If the latest is what we may go by, Qualcomm has revealed a new feature which the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 mobile platform would get packed.
According to what Qualcomm said, Snapdragon 845 will sport a Broadcast Audio function that is capable of letting fans stream music to multiple Bluetooth sets simultaneously. In that way, a group can listen to same music contents through the Bluetooth headphones. Furthermore, one would also be capable of playing a podcast throughout the house via the multiple speakers. In addition, with automatic retransmission as well as packet-loss concealment, the feature promises to offer a nearly perfect synchronization, reports GizmoChina. And if these are all to be believed, this is undoubtedly an innovation never offered by any other mobile chips before or around presently.
If one is a fan of multi-room playback, then the potentials of traditional Bluetooth makes it a viable alternative to the platform exclusive smart speakers. One doesn’t have to own multiple speakers like Echos or Home pods in order to listen to Classic FM while moving around the house. One can also enjoy the tune listened to on headset with friends sans having to give up the headphone. Also, the Broadcast Audio will let users share as well as participate in sound in a way which brings people closer and together, and music is certainly all about being together!
