When it comes to including a voice assistant to a pair of headphones or a speaker, Alexa (Amazon’s voice assistant) has become the default option for most of the OEMs. This is likely due to the high adoption rate and openness of the platform. Considering this, Qualcomm has made a decision to lend these makers a hand by developing a smart headset reference design. The company sports its very own QCC5100-series Bluetooth audio processor. With the Alexa app equipped on your Android handset, once it is connected with these earbuds, you can switch Alexa with a simple tap on one of the buds.
Thanks to the radio experience of Qualcomm, this reference design actually showcases active noise cancellation along with a long battery life, TrueWireless Stereo, and aptX HD audio. Since this kit has “out of the box” support for Alexa Mobile Accessory Kit protocol, makers can aim more on the design and other functions, thereby saving cost and time in the long run.
Speaking of Qualcomm, earlier Coolpad, the China-based smartphone manufacturer, declared a joint venture with Qualcomm to raid into the segment of smart wearable devices. The portfolio for smart wearable goods of Coolpad will be supported on the “Wear” platforms of Qualcomm Snapdragon, it claimed to the media in an interview.
The portfolio is aimed on tailor-made goods to meet the needs of up-and-coming wearable sub-sectors, comprising smart trackers for pets and valuable assets & smartwatches for kids and the elderly.
“Employing the highly-incorporated ‘Wear’ platforms of Snapdragon, Coolpad is using its benefits in small size, low power, robust location services, and 4G connectivity to convey smart trackers and smartwatches to the elderly, kids, families, and pets,” claimed Senior Director-Product Management at Qualcomm Technologies Inc., Pankaj Kedia, to the media in an interview.
