The Snapdragon 802 will empower your smart TV to playback 4K content (if you have one) and run applications that is actually usable. Alongside is the multi-tasking capability that can handle 4 simultaneous HD playback. The dedicated video-processing engine, Hollywood Quality Video (HQV), can upscale your 1080p video to near 4K quality so you can enjoy your current titles.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 802 specifications:
– 1.8GHz Quad-core Krait CPU
– Adreno 330 GPU
– Two-stream, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac
– AllJoyn integration
– Snapdragon Studio Access content protection

The processor can be built into the new TVs or even with separate set-top boxes in late 2014.
