In addition to the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform, Qualcomm's Broadcast Audio is also available on a range of the company's Bluetooth audio chips, including the CSR8670, CSR8675 and CSRA68100, as well as the QCC5100 chipset designed for true wireless earbuds. This comprehensively integrated single-chip solution is created to offer manufacturers a highly efficient way of controlling and managing the truly wireless connection to the earbuds and is available in an ultra-small form factor wafer-level 4mm x 4mm CSP package along with a comprehensive suite of software (Audio Development Kit) to support the development of new generation, highly compact, feature-rich wireless earbuds and hearables.

As interesting as all of this technology sounds, you have to wait a while to get your hands on an 845-powered VR headset. Qualcomm's VR/AR platform will be targeted at partner projects such as the Facebook Oculus Go headset and the HTC Vive Focus (which is selling in China).

Qualcomm has revealed its Snapdragon 845 Xtended Reality (XR) platform for both mobile virtual reality and augmented reality mobile headsets.

Qualcomm will be demoing the capabilities of the Snapdragon 845 and the AI Engine at Mobile World Congress.

A reference design is a prototype that includes the chips and everything else needed to build a complete VR or AR system.

Another new feature joining the Snapdragon 845 is Qualcomm Broadcast Audio, which will allow a single Bluetooth device to send music to multiple devices at once, with near flawless synchronisation. It's not clear when exactly we will see products based on Qualcomm's upgraded VR reference platform.

The system will deliver up to 4 million pixels per eye, and the 845 chip offers 30 percent faster graphics performance and 30 percent better power efficiency than the previous generation of chips.

The Snapdragon 845 will also enable what Qualcomm calls Adreno Foveation, which is basically foveated rendering using its Adreno GPU.

Designs based on the QCC5100 Series using the enhanced Qualcomm TrueWireless Stereo are expected to be available in the second half of 2018.

Two face outwards to offer room-scale VR, while another brace of lenses are used inside the headset to track the wearer's eye movements to lower the resolution of areas in their peripheral vision while sharpening the bit they are looking at.

Key components of the software include the Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine, which provides developers with tools to manage workloads on the processor.
