the smartphone hey we have amazing lineup of announcements and partners with us here at this event so let's get this party started it's my honor to welcome onto the stage Qualcomm president and CEO Cristiano Oman [Applause] [Music] [Applause] hello everyone thank you thank you so much welcome everyone to Tech summit we're very excited to Stone outline to be here back in Maui I cannot believe this is event number seven and uh your presence in support is what really would make this event so special I was there I heard about it but I couldn't see where are the Insiders foreign thank you all for coming thank you thank you for your passion and enthusiasm and support to snapdragon look we're very happy to be here and as it expects we're going to have big announcements to make when we think about the future of snapdragons this is the industry Premier event for mobile Innovation and that's not our term I think a lot of the press and analysts been telling us this is the Premier event for mobile Innovation and there is no question that innovation in this industry really happens on snapdragon so with that uh our smartphone today it's really incredible it's Mankind's largest development platform to date is our most Inseparable device he had fundamentally changed the society in our lives and we're doing more and more amazing things from the ability to stream 4K in AK videos from anywhere we go uh gaming mainstream gaming it's now coming to mobile devices we capture and share pictures and videos and how we're going to share you know our life how we stay connected with everyone it's really an incredible device and more and more our our smartphone it's at everything that we do uh whether it's how we get educated how we become productive and work how to entertain ourselves and to make this happen it requires incredible technology so incredible experiences cannot be possible with breakthrough in Technologies and this is what we do as a company and it's about having leadership in the latest and greatest Communications technology uh to build in our Giga gigabyte per second connect to society it's the ability to add AI to everything we do to have more and more computing power but never in compromising size turmoil and battery life and that's what defined us as a company the ability to create incredible technology across all of those different areas and make that a reality in a smartphone a lot of people ask me can you define Qualcomm you know what are the what are the key assets that Qualcomm have as a company and I'll Define those assets in tree it's about everything Wireless and everything Cloud connected a hundred percent of the time it is about high performance Computing for low power device and it's about own device intelligence we have a belief at Qualcomm that the scale of AI is going to happen at the edge and we're about you're going to see that today how AI has been more and more pervasive in our experiences but AI at the edge is different you needed the process in real time you have access to contacts and you make AI being part of the experience in real time and you have to do this in a very efficient way those are the three things that define Qualcomm the final one technology roadmap and I think with very unique uh situated because in order to make this a reality we can't just have a leadership on one technology or the other we have to keep pushing the boundaries of communications whether seller or Wi-Fi position location or satellite we need to keep pushing the boundaries of CPU processing Graphics processing Digital Signal processing image process processing AI processing and many more and as a result what we realize is that technology that besides borrowing our smartphone is starting to go everywhere where mobile experience goes and the company's changing with that we're really changing from the company that used to be the wireless communication company from the mobile industry into the connected processor company for the intelligent Edge and we see mobile technology and Snapdragon going to computers to the merger of physical and digital spaces to an ecosystem of where both devices as a rounder smartphone we experience sound in other technologies that we can wear all the way into where we go into our cars and we're sitting behind the wheel and that's the mission and that's the mission of Snapdragon to be able to deliver that experience everywhere mobile technology goes and that's how we we think about the Snapdragon the Snapdragon brand every everywhere you see mobile technology you will see is snapdragon from your answers your computer your virtual reality augmented reality device your wearables your game and device and in the car that's an essential part what the company is and how we continue to push the technology forward and only Qualcomm can bring snapdragon so as we go to the next step of the presentation I wanted to bring a different partner something that you're probably not used to see but it's one part it's a great partner that really speaks to the many creators out there and it can demonstrate how Qualcomm is changing as a company and our partnership is also expanding as we go to a lot of different devices so it's my great pleasure to bring on stage govind balakrishnan from Adobe to tell you more about uh what are we doing together govind please come to the stage [Applause] thank you so much for being here thank you Christiano it's my pleasure to be here thank you you know many of you don't know but we have a very long uh a partnership with Adobe I remember some of the first meeting I had with Adobe those was on the feature phone days those in the early days of 3G and a lot of our customers will use Adobe Flash to design their uis and uh and I think all of you remember a lot of flash technology in Mobile phones we came a long way absolutely and as we continue to see the pace of mobile technology in you know evolving our partnership had evolved and now I'm super excited about what we're going to talk about today which is how even that is evolving Beyond phones so the first thing I'm going to ask you go then if you can share with us what are we doing in Computing especially at Snapdragon started to evolve into next Generation PCS yeah more than happy to uh Cristiano and thank you once again for having me here uh it's funny that you started uh by mentioning flash because actually I started my career at Adobe working on flash and I do remember those you know interactions we had with Qualcomm during that Journey uh but uh this is obviously a different world we're talking about things that are forward-looking and very different uh to start with I would say that adobe's mission is to change the uh world through digital experiences uh we uh if you as you as you look around us you'll clearly see that design and content are fueling the global economy and for all practical purposes Adobe believes that creativity is for everyone on any device at any time if you think back previously um creativity and visual communication was primarily for the creative professionals but things have changed dramatically today everyone is a creator be it for social media creation as a student as a small and medium business owner as a solopreneur as a marketer everyone is trying to create or feels the need to create digital standout content to stand out in this digital world so for many years Adobe actually has been in the business of creating tools that Empower these creators to create that do the to do their best work regardless of their experience and skill level and uh Partnerships uh collaborations product collaborations with industry-leading companies such as Qualcomm truly truly excite us you asked about compute and on the compute side we already have Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom running on Windows on Snapdragon devices as we look ahead we're actually quite excited about the potential of the experiences that are enabled on snapdragon and are committed to delivering the best of Creative Cloud on this platform running natively on this platform starting with Adobe Fresco and Adobe Acrobat in 2023 this is uh this is truly incredible you know the ability to bring the power of the Adobe tools for creators running natively on Windows and on Snapchat again it's going to really enable us to create a whole new experience in PCS we're very excited about the partnership in the commitment of adobe to run the platforms natively on Snapdragon absolutely but I'm going to go beyond computing so the other thing that there's a lot of uh Technology Innovation it's how we think about the merger of physical and digital spaces you know there's a lot of discussions about the metaverse and I'm just going to tell you we're not negative on it we're actually positive we see that there's digital twins of everything and we see that the merger of the digital in physical spaces is a reality just look at how we think about the hybrid work environment today and we're really committed to the to xor devices virtual reality augmented reality and that's another area that our partnership is expending to so maybe if you could share with us what are we doing together when we think about XR devices powered by snap track yeah absolutely on on XR I think our companies share a belief that in order to accelerate the creation of content in the space it is important to enable creators to author uh augmented reality experiences especially through AR glasses and mixed reality headsets so to this end Adobe and Qualcomm Technologies are working together to bring adobe's 3d and immersive tooling to Snapdragon spaces XR developer platform we strongly believe that snack Dragon spaces is the industry-leading develop platform for developers to author incredible amazing immersive experiences XR experiences that can span and scale across a wide variety of XR devices to this end we are going to start by bringing adobe's 3D and immersive authoring experiences to the smartphones mobile PCS and XR devices and we plan to bring the universal scene description open source technology to Snapdragon power devices and in the future adobe's 3D animus of experiences will be viewable on augmented reality and mixed reality headsets so tons of opportunity here we're just getting started I think we're really excited to see what we can do together that's great look it's truly incredible I think as I said we're the beginning of something big uh that's that's going to be a reality and what I like about this partnership is now developers can do incredible things make use of this technology across multiple devices it's like we're going uh everywhere Beyond mobile and it's great to take you know what the Adobe ecosystem with us which leads me to the last question from your perspective why are you working with Qualcomm and what a Snapdragon means to Adobe sure Christina that's a great question um I think our product collaboration starts with our product collaboration and I believe that our product collaboration is based on a shared and deep passion for innovation to in every sense of the word be it around pushing the boundaries of software and hardware and seeing what we can do together by bringing these two worlds together to deliver amazing new digital experiences Snapdragon platforms are powerful Solutions with industry-leading features and performance and we strongly believe at Adobe strongly believe that Snapdragon is a great enabler for us to deliver premium experiences for our creative community so we are actually looking forward to partnering very closely with you and and your team to continue to empower everyone to change the world through digital experiences and expand on the potential of creativity and document productivity we think that the opportunity is amazing and we can't wait to continue to build on the partnership that we have to deliver on all of this in the upcoming months and years that's awesome thank you so much coven thank you very much for joining us in the tech Summit thank you for the Adobe team for a great partnership and I think we have an incredible opportunity ahead with technology and how we expand together the Snapdragon ecosystem thank you so much looking forward thank you very much thank you foreign [Applause] the reason you came here is to learn about the next Snapdragon uh eight series and this as I said before this is where Innovation happens in Mobile we have been really focused as a company in really pushing the boundaries of innovation for premium smartphone experience and that's the mission of Snapdragon 8 and the other devices the follow as a reminder uh Snapdragon 8 became synonymous with a premium mobile experience and it's been uh designed virtually every Android OEM Flagship devices and Snapdragon 8 gen 1 and a plus gen 1 has been an incredible success story power more than 200 Flagship devices when we think about each one of those products we have to ears in advance multiple years in advance imagine what are the experience that our users want and how do we make that a reality and and that's what we want to tell you today at this event what are we doing next when we think of snapdragon so it is my great honor to bring the stage Chris Patrick he's the SVP and GM of the handset business for Qualcomm and he's going to tell you everything you need to know about the next Snapdragon and what we're announcing today Chris please welcome to stage foreign

premium tier platform yet [Music] foreign [Music] foreign [Music] [Music] foreign the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform it looks great from every angle big moment everybody let me tell you a little bit about the platform we designed the 8 Gen 2 with one key technology in mind artificial intelligence Qualcomm is the AI inferencing leader at the age today we already power billions of edge devices across the globe we've built on that expertise to make our new flagship platform an engine of innovation a true AI Marvel we've integrated AI across the entire platform to usher in a new era of AI accelerated experiences let me share with you just a few of the highlights and changes we've made throughout the system first let's start with the Qualcomm hexagon processor our Central High Performance inference Powerhouse which has received major upgrades this year we've made significant Hardware advances across multiple aspects of the design like doubling the size of our tensor accelerator and adding a host of new hardware accelerated features we'll share more details later on today together these enhancements deliver massive performance and power improvements for example users will see an increase in natural language processing capability of more than 4X along with up to 60 percent better power consumption now let's talk about the Next Generation Qualcomm sensing hub this is a portion of the design best known for its role in low power contextual awareness use cases the sensing Hub uses AI to process input from audio video Visual and sensor information to detect the environment around you and then adapt based on all the new emerging use cases we've added a second AI processor for a substantial increase in performance this will further enhance the always sensing capabilities in the area of audio and sensors but will create whole new use cases utilizing our latest always sensing camera this will revolutionize how cameras recognize context and what happens to the information We Gather it's protected and secure never leaves the Qualcomm sensing hub now let's dive into high performance camera and the AI integration there we've added a physical Bridge called the hexagon direct link between the hexagon and the Qualcomm Spectra ISP to create a direct Channel between them the result of this pairing is what we call the cognitive ISP the very first of its kind in the mobile industry you know we've used AI for Imaging before but now with the hexagon direct link it's much more integrated we can tap into the power of hexagon at multiple points in the processing to create whole new experiences the cognitive ISP now enables your smartphone camera to see and understand the world around you in many layers and adapt in real time we also continue to advance high resolution video playback by adding support for 8K HDR 60fps video our survey of AI across the whole platform continues with connectivity our truly Global x70 5G modem RF system features the world's first and only 5G AI processor in a mobile platform it harnesses the power of AI to enable breakthrough 5G performance the AI process is actually housed inside the modem itself to optimize in real time a variety of critical parameters these include Channel State feedback millimeter wave beam forming antenna tuning and other adaptive functions unlocking unparalleled connectivity speed and improvements the coverage latency reliability and battery life plus the Snapdragon 8 ushers in the Wi-Fi 7 error with the fast connect 7800 the world's first and only Wi-Fi 7 solution with high band simultaneous multi-link HBS multi-link unlocks Global Peak Wi-Fi 7 performance more than doubling Wi-Fi 6 speeds now up to 5.8 gigabits per second with sustained latency of less than two milliseconds the fast connect 7800 also brings Advanced dual Bluetooth technology doubling the range of your Bluetooth connections we've now covered a great deal of AI across the entire platform let's pivot to graphics our Qualcomm adreno GPU is at the heart of Snapdragon Elite Gaming this year it will boast a 25 increase in graphics rendering performance as well as a 45 increase in power efficiency plus this generation we've added Vulcan 1.3 support this will improve Balkan performance by up to 30 percent we also have some incredible immersive gaming features which we'll share with you later on today our adreno display subsystem has also received significant improvements this year to improve that if on-device viewing experience I'm thrilled to announce that the adreno display is the first and only platform to support all key HDR formats including HDR Vivid 10 HDR 10 10 plus and Dolby vision next up is our Qualcomm cryo CPU we've made major strides in CPU performance and Power by delivering generational improvements in the micro architecture of individual cores and then by combining those cores in a new Innovative way as you can see we've historically had a prime core three performance cores and four efficiency cores in the CPU but with this generation we've converted one of those efficiency cores into additional performance core this will deliver a significant Leap Forward in multi-threaded performance the first of its kind in the mobile industry these four performance cores actually made up of two distinct micro architectures this will best address all types of applications including providing high performance for legacy 32-bit applications in addition to these architecture and microarchitecture improvements we've raised Peak frequencies for example on the prime call we will enable a Max CPU frequency of 3.2 gigahertz overall our new cryo CPU will deliver improved performance and power efficiency across the board in aggregate users will see 35 faster performance and 40 percent better power efficiency on the 8 gen 2.
I've covered a lot of the next-gen architecture improvements within the 8th gen 2. these are the building blocks the tools of innovation operating within your future device Snapdragon is at the heart of your premium experiences but our distinguished partners are the ones that bring these experiences to life in their Flagship smartphones let's hear from some of them snapdragon dragon's ordinary experiences thousands of Flagship devices and the photography video gaming and audio features you love here's why our partners choose Snapdragon 8 gen 2. Next Level gaming under photography experiences Wi-Fi 7 support which further elevates our wireless ready for enhanced experiences greater 5G connectivity and increased coverage Communications using millimeter waves ultimate performance with impressive power efficiency powerful AI technology is together with our partners we connect people across the globe through shared experiences that bring us closer together [Applause] thank you to our incredible Partners you know we are Qualcomm cannot wait to see the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 come to life in Innovative devices from each of these companies now to introduce you to some of the Next Generation Snapdragon experiences powered by our latest platform I'd like to welcome the product lead for Snapdragon Technologies Ziad askar thank you everybody thank you Chris I'm very excited to tell you all about the new technology Innovations in the Snapdragon 8 gen 2. premium experiences are at the core of what we do and enable we constantly think about the needs and expectations of the consumer then work to develop breakthrough hardware and software Innovations to bring these amazing experiences to life Cristiano spoke earlier about our one technology roadmap and our leadership in Technologies like AI camera Graphics security sound and connectivity each features best-in-class technology that we develop in-house from the ground up so we can bring you experiences that are more intelligent and feature-rich and allow us to drive the connected intelligent Edge to its full potential they are the foundation of the Snapdragon 8 experienced pillars and this solid foundation allows us to create industrial leading products for handsets and our growth businesses as well covering Automotive XR windows and Snapdragon and iot to deliver the most compelling experiences across all these product lines our Technologies are optimized and tuned to deliver incredible performance at the lowest power possible now as Chris mentioned we have seen huge improvements in graphics Ai and CPU performance compared to previous generations but the question is how do we compare to others Snapdragon 8 is built with sustained performance per watt at its core this means we are under games at the highest speeds and we hold that performance over a long period of time because gaming is a sustained use case now we'll see some of our competitors claim the highest marks during the first minute or so but the drop off significantly after that that performance is not usable it's not usable for gaming but this is what the latest Snapdragon agent whose performance can do and we are very excited that it truly leads the industry in graphics performance and with Snapdragon Elite Gaming we work with the mobile gaming industry to provide leading premium Graphics experiences in the palm of your hand and we'll talk about these in detail shortly now we also carefully measure performance across the entire system looking at every Vector such as Graphics CPU and memory now if you look at the benchmarks like in tutu Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 sets a new bar for overall system performance again especially for sustained performance and as you can see here too Snapback and 8 Gen 2 has clear leadership our performance leadership cuts across all experiences including Snapdragon sight and Snapdragon sound now these experiences are very close to the hearts of consumers but if you look according to dxo Mark Snapdragon enabled devices consistently top the charts across these areas as well and Snapdragon need to Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will push that bar further by outperforming consumer expectations AI is another key area that traverses all things technology running multiple neural models at the fastest speed and lowest power will produce the best results like how quickly a question gets answered or images are classified as you can see with these benchmarks we are leading in AI performance and more importantly performance for any given amount of power and it is all due to a unique AI hardware tools and our leading AI stack as you saw across all experienced pillars of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 we have clear leadership next we will dive into our technology pillars starting with AI first across all our product lines we're continuing to make our devices Smarter with our leading air Innovations completely transforming experiences on the device now today AI is applied broadly across the entire Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 platform to enhance on-device experiences such as capturing amazing photos and videos getting the most from your 5G connections like Chris mentioned or helping you game Leica Pro and doing all these things at the same time now one of the new areas that AI has enabled on our devices is natural language processing to understand and break down human language as quickly as possible we have made significant improvements and added Hardware acceleration to run Transformer networks faster and more efficiently this gives us a unique advantage to our new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for natural language processing use cases in other words Snapdragon 8 can Now understand what you say on a totally different level and our groundbreaking Innovations like micro tile inferencing allow us to do all this AI processing at even lower power to tell you more about how we bring new natural language processing use cases to Snapdragon we have a video message from the GM of xiaomi's mobile chip division David chin [Music] thank you yeah that is foreign foreign so inside foreign foreign thank you David great to see what xiaomi is doing with the Snapdragon 8. we can't wait for consumers to experience these amazing capabilities first hand now another approach we have been leading is to allow customers to shrink AI models to save power without losing precision and we're making that possible with our tools such as the Qualcomm AI Studio I'm very proud to announce that Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is the first solution to commercially deploy integer for precision integer 4 can bring an additional 60 increase in performance per watt versus integer rate as well as 90 faster AI inferencing and to really put things in perspective from floating Point 32-bit to integer 4 we can reduce the power by a whopping 64 x and that is why we have been driving the push towards AI integer inferencing what makes this possible without losing accuracy is the AI Studio coupled with this huge Hardware leap is the Qualcomm AI stack which is the most complete offering to make these use cases work best at the connected intelligent Edge now translating your words into multiple languages pretty impressive but what about in a more social environment like gaming gaming is now a lot more immersive because of artificial intelligence with AI Gamers can battle enemies that have been trained by AI the planes behind me in this game called air Derby Battleground can act intelligently as if they were controlled by human players and they would continue to become smarter with time these sequences are trained by multiple neural models and thousands of neurons and inferenced in our hexagon processor the behavior of these planes adapts and even takes control to provide a more challenging environment so that you can become an even better gamer now Chris touched on our always sensing capabilities and the advancements of AI processing capability in the sensing hub with these enhancements you'll be able to see new experiences come to life especially without always sensing camera for AI that merely sips power the information the camera collects is always secure and never leaves the sensing hub now for some key use cases you will be able to point to QR codes and activate them while the device is in idle mode or when sharing content with a friend the always sensing camera will detect a second unwelcome face and disable notifications all these Innovations such as integer for enablement microtile inferencing hexagon direct link AI studio and AI stack are what make AI work best on snapdragon this is the power of AI at the edge and some examples of what we can accomplish with the Snapdragon 8 gen 2's AI now let's turn the stage over to Sarah McMurray to talk about what's new with Snapdragon sound [Applause] thanks it's okay thanks Snapdragon is all about delivering incredible sound experiences to help us keep our finger on the pulse of the latest consumer audio Trends we refreshed our state of sound report for 2022 surveying 6 000 smartphone users in the es Europe Asia and India to examine the factors that are driving audio device purchases and interest in various different use cases a central theme with this year's findings is that people continue to rely heavily on their headphones and audio devices post pandemic expanding five to six hours each day listening to music collaborating on video calls and playing their favorite mobile games this is really driving interest in premium audio features with nearly 60 percent of consumers seeking either high resolution or losses audio quality in their next device these findings reinforce the need for Technologies like Snapdragon signed and I'm really excited I'm proud to say that over the past 12 months there's been huge momentum for Snapdragon sound there are nice 60 OEM signed up to use the technology and over 70 devices are commercially available today with many more expected to launch by the end of the year and into 2023 all right let's take a look at some of them before that [Music] time [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] take

experiences and Snapdragon camera leads in every metric of camera performance this year Snapdragon 8 gen 1 enabled some amazing capabilities in smartphone cameras including 200 megapixels one inch image sensors with gigantic pixels and for the first time 8K HDR video capture loaded with over a billion shades of color and the list goes on and on and on and now Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will deliver a breakthrough in the next generation of camera quality as Chris mentioned the cognitive ISP is a breakthrough in AI powered photography and videography neural networks unlock a massive Improvement in camera quality Snapdragon has always had a powerful AI engine to apply neural Nets to make photos more stunning but the neural Nets had to be applied after the photos had been tapped a video had been captured that took time and it took battery life and it delayed your ability to capture the next shot but thanks to the cognitive ISP in Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 we can apply the AI photo editing technique called semantic segmentation in real time it will turn great photos into spectacular photos it's neural Nets that we trained to identify many different objects such as people faces Skies grass and more then apply custom edits for each element in the scene it can soften skin sharpen grass and create gorgeous blue skies think of it as Photoshop layers but handled completely within the ISP it's running while you're capturing photos and videos or even before you can see objects in the viewfinder being enhanced as you're ready to take the shot a real-time segmentation filter is groundbreaking this means the camera is truly contextually aware of what it's seeing the following is a demo of the real-time semantic segmentation filter the network was trained for more than just faces it was trained to see details including lips eyes teeth skin hair and more it can also identify accessories including watches helmets bags and glasses as you can see it detected glasses and is removing the reflection and glare in the lenses once recognized the cognitive ISP makes real-time powerful and dramatic edits it will capture colors how you remember them and add drama and emotion to your photos Skies will be Bluer grass will be greener skin will be smoother your photo and videos will look amazing the cognitive ISP and the AI engine which deliver real-time layered pixel processing and the semantic segmentation filter will unlock Next Generation professional quality cameras for all of your photos videos and even real-time enhancing of images in the viewfinder the new Snapdragon cognitive ISP will do an amazing job at enhancing the data from the image sensor but we can make even more dramatic improvements if we get Snapdragon technology even closer to the pixels on the image sensor to help us achieve this we'll be working even closer with one of the largest sensor creators Samsung our first project together is the new Samsung ISO cell hp3 2022 was the dawn of the 200 megapixel camera our work together will make 200 megapixel cameras even more prevalent and even better this incredible 200 megapixel image sensor has even optimized for Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform and designed to enable high resolution photo capture with real-time remosaic on the Snapdragon platform 200 megapixel photos are mind-blowing they're packed with detail these large images are beautiful on their own but also allow you to zoom into sections to see details as well as the smallest the spine of books it's incredible Snapdragon will be able to operate the hp3 in all capture modes this includes 200 megapixel or in 50 megapixel or 12.5
megapixel binning modes for extremely low light staggered HDR mode that delivers video with extreme dynamic range and 8K video for massive video with sharp pixels the Samsung ISO cell hp3 optimized for Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will deliver professional quality photos and videos collaborating at the image sensor level will Turbo Charge Snapdragon camera quality so last year we announced a project with Sony we we opened a joint lab on our camp our Qualcomm campus to develop image sensor fine tune for snapdragon well it's a year later and we ended up with not one image sensor but two today we're announcing that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will debut support for New Image sensors specifically tuned for the Snapdragon mobile platform both image sensors will greatly enhance video capture they will provide extreme computational HDR that's because both image sensors debut Sony's new qdol4 technology they combine four exposures for each frame of video delivering an extreme HDR effect for video capture videos from the sensors Dazzle thanks to qdol4 videos and photos will show detail in the darkest of Shadows and brightest of sunlight all in one image but with no noise the Sony IMX 800 and the one-inch Sony IMX 989 are the first quad digital overlap HDR image sensors fine-tuned for snapdragon with new Innovations such as the cognitive ISP semantic segmentation and collaborating with Samsung and Sony Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will help you take your photography skills further Beyond Pro to tell us more about leveling up on gaming experiences in Snapdragon 8 gen 2.
