4G and 5G summit: Iris, retina or facial recognition as a key
Qualcomm's Sy Choundhury, Senior Director of Product Management, talked to the media audience in Hong Kong at the 4G and 5G summit about the security mechanisms and machine learning capabilities of Snapdragon processors.
4G 5G summit: What is important for the future
Keith Kressin, senior VP of product management at Qualcomm, has just given us a quick overview on the state of Snapdragon 820 and 821, and has discussed what will be important for the future of Snapdragon.
As the company acquired Vizio too
LeEco is a company that used to be known as LeTV and now, since they have phones, TVs, smart bikes and many other products they decided to change the name to LeEco. The company plans to launch a few TV devices and a few phones in less than a week, and it is a great step from the Chinese based manufacturer.
US first Snapdragon 821 device
It looks like that if you order the Pixel by Google Phone, you might get one in the US on October 20th. It looks like that first batch includes both the smaller 5-inch and 5.5-inch version and is tailored for the Verizon network.
Galaxy S8 Edge with 4K screen
Just moments after Samsung officially confirmed that it is stopping production of Note 7 and halting all sales, the first realistic Galaxy S8 rumors have emerged.

MediaTek has started making rather unique chips and its strategy was even followed by some of its competition. Helio X20 / X25 was the world’s first deca-core SoC that did a decent job, but Helio X30 again packs deca-core with an impressive alignment.
Faster and slower
Qualcomm is returning to the two high end chips strategy and you can expect to see two variants of what we call Snapdragon 830 today. They will end up with two different product numbers, one being higher than the other.
While many speculated about the 10nm soon-to-be-launched Snapdragon 830, a Chinese company Vernee, has announced its first model, the Vernee Apollo 2 Pro, featuring Snapdragon 830.
Experience meets feature
In December last year Fudzilla revealed that the iPhone SE would use an Intel modem. Despite the fact that our sources were confident that iPhone 7 had an Intel modem, we sat on the story as we could not believe that Apple would be ready for such a risk after all, Jobs' Mob is not famous for being cutting edge.
