Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 comes with built-in support for always-on voice recognition


Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor that’s slated to be put in just about every high end phone for the rest of the year has an easily overlooked feature that predates some of the touchless controls that have been gaining traction in the past few days thanks to the Moto X. In fact, since it was announced, the Snapdragon 800 had support to always-on voice activation on the CPU level. Not the undercut Motorola’s achievement on doing this with their impressive custom processor work, but it’s very likely we’ll start to see that voice activation hitting more phones this year as they start to hit shelves with a Snapdragon 800 inside.
