According to Qualcomm, Snapdragon Seamless is based on peripherals that enable devices on the platform to discover each other and establish a secure connection. When connected, compatible devices can exchange data and share resources, regardless of their interface, design, or operating system.
To date, the technology is integrated into Qualcomm’s Snapdragon mobile platforms, including the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 (link), Snapdragon X Elite (link), and sound and sound platforms. Qualcomm has also indicated that Snapdragon Seamless will be extended to XR, Auto, and IoT platforms in the future.
Snapdragon Seamless claims to offer several benefits to consumers and device manufacturers. It supports cross-platform sharing for consumers, which has worried Android and Windows users. For device manufacturers, this technology allows them to create products that easily integrate with other devices.
There is no denying that the concept behind Snapdragon Seamless looks very promising. Its success, however, depends on how successful Qualcomm will be in attracting major hardware manufacturers to support the platform. Although the company has successfully registered support for several popular brands, it needs to secure the participation of additional companies to make Snapdragon Seamless seamless.
Snapdragon Seamless is expected to be available on devices that use it by the end of 2023, with the first devices to be equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and Snapdragon X Elite chips.
