Tango Is Now Compatible With Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820

Lenovo was the first to inculcate augmented reality into its smartphones with Google Tango. What surprised a lot of us was the fact that OEM used Snapdragon 625 rather than Snapdragon 820. Qualcomm however has made specific improvements in order to ensure that the SD652 works in complete synchronization with Tango.

Furthermore Qualcomm has extended the same courtesy to Snapdragon 820 and assures us that the same will be done for all following generations of the chips, hence allowing a wider range of devices to inculcate augmented reality within them. Tango is able to carry out its functions on the reliance of multiple sensors which are later processed by the smartphone’s CPU.

In the case of Lenovo PHAB 2 it was the Snapdragon 625 which shares a lot of similarities with Snapdragon 820. Both need effective sensors which rely on external co processors but the Snapdragon 820 seems like the more appropriate choice because of its speedy performance and lower power requirements.

Accuracy is important to make augmented reality work because it has to respond to real time events and data. Qualcomm is quite proud of the fact that both the Snapdragon 600 and 800 processors come with an integrated global high frequency clock which precisely time stamps all the data, making these a perfect choice for Tango.

Qualcomm aims to make AR popular in addition to making sure that its chips are the first choice for all Tango devices.
