Designed to support advanced photography and enhanced gaming and also supports an 18:9 aspect ratio with full HD+ display resolution. Snapdragon 636 boasts Long battery life and fast LTE speeds for top-tier Smartphones and Tablets.

Qualcomm Spectra ISP
The 14-Bit Qualcomm spectra 160 ISP is engineered to capture the support of up to 24 megapixels without any shutter lag and offers smooth zooming experience with fast autofocusing and true-to-life colours for improved image quality.
