Bangalore: Qualcomm made a preview release of Snapdragon SDK for Android at the Uplinq 2012 Developers Conference for Android to provide developers and device makers the ability to differentiate their applications on devices by exposing a new set of value-added features.  



The Snapdragon SDK for Android enables mobile developers to access next-generation technology and features of Snapdragon processors via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) not otherwise available.



“With the Snapdragon SDK for Android, developers and manufactures can now more easily utilize these features as they work to set their products apart in a crowded ecosystem,” said Rob Chandhok, President of Qualcomm Internet Services and the company’s senior vice president for software strategy.



Some of the new features and benefits of the Snapdragon APIs in the preview release of the SDK include:



1.    facial processing, such as blink and smile detection, which makes it easier to take better pictures of people in groups;
2.    burst capture, which leverages zero shutter lag to photograph a stream of images at once to select the best shot;
3.    surround sound recording for better audio capture;
4.    hardware echo cancellation for better real-time audio experiences;
5.    sensor gestures (tap-left/tap-right, push/pull, face-up/face-down, tilt) that enable developers and device makers to push the envelope on new,    differentiated user interfaces;
6.    low power always on geofencing capabilities; and
7.    indoor location that enables apps to continue providing accurate location information even when the user is indoors.
