Advanced heterogeneous platforms like the Snapdragon 845 are capable of supporting immersive VR experiences when developers are given the right set of tools. The new Snapdragon 845 Virtual Reality Development Kit is designed as a comprehensive, stand-alone mobile VR platform that is supported by Snapdragon Profiler and power optimization tools to simplify development and provide VR application developers access to new VR features for truly immersive mobile experiences on Snapdragon 845 Android devices.

It will be the first time, many new technologies that are crucial for an optimal and immersive VR user experience will be supported in the Snapdragon 845 Virtual Reality Development Kit.

Qualcomm has reportedly rolled out the list of devices which support Quick Charge 4.0/4.0+. However, the company surprisingly has added only one device to the list. The Quick charge supporting device is the Razer phone. This comes as a surprise as the ZTE's Nubia Z17 also features the Quick charge 4.0/4.0+, however, Qualcomm somehow missed mentioning the device in the list of handsets supporting the Quick charge.
