Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 Now Optimized for Project Tango

Posted by at 1:20 pm on June 29, 2016


Qualcomm today said its top-of-the-line processor, the Snapdragon 820, is ready to power Project Tango hardware.

Qualcomm initially supported Project Tango with the Snapdragon 652, which required a number of software optimizations. This is why the recently-announced Lenovo Phab 2 Pro Project Tango handset runs on the Snapdragon 652 rather than a different chip.

Qualcomm retuned the 820 to match the 652’s software optimizations. Specifically, Qualcomm says the Snapdragon 820 now offers “high accuracy, uniform time stamping of multiple sensor data streams, efficient processing without the need for external co-processors, and leading camera and sensor processing technology” — all needed for Tango.

Qualcomm plans to support Tango with more of its Snapdragon 600 and 800 tier processors over time.
