DSLR-quality photography from a smartphone? That’s something we’d like to see.

Qualcomm on Wednesday offered up some details about its Snapdragon 820 chip, and if its claims are true, you can expect a huge bump in future smartphone camera capabilities, among other things.
The company said its upcoming chip is “designed to support superior DSLR-quality photography” along with “enhanced computer vision.”
This will be possible, according to Qualcomm, thanks to its new Spectra image signal processing unit — described as the company’s “most advanced” dual-ISP unit to date. The component supports up to 3 simultaneous cameras (one in the front of the phone, and two rear-facing) and “up to 25 megapixels at 30 frames per-second with zero shutter lag.”
