"Mobile devices will be able decode and wirelessly transmit 4K video
at a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels with an integrated H.265
hardware decoder, Qualcomm said. The H.265 codec is one of two major
4K video formats available today alongside Google’s VP9. The 4K video
can be transmitted from smartphones and tablets to other devices like
TVs that support the Miracast wireless streaming standard.

"The graphics engine will able to render 2560 x 1600 video, and
support tools such as DirectX 11.2 that are used in the latest mobile
games. It will also support programming tools such as OpenGL ES3.0 and
OpenCL, so demanding tasks can be off-loaded from CPUs to graphics
processors. The graphics engine, called Adreno 405, also has features
to improve video effects in games."
