Qualcomm has posted the details pertaining to new SoCs for entry and mid-range smartphones/tablets today. Dubbed as Snapdragon 200 and Snapdragon 400, these processors will be seen in several Android devices later this year.
According to Qualcomm, Snapdragon 200 processors include quad ARM Cortex-A5 CPUs up to 1.4GHz per core, along with Adreno 203 GPU. These SoCs support HD video playback, CDMA multimode/UMTS modem options, dual-sim dual standby and upto 8 megapixels camera.
On the other hand, Snapdragon 400 processors will come in two variants, one with Dual Krait CPUs running at up to 1.7GHz per core and other with Quad ARM Cortex A7 CPUs running at up to 1.4GHz per core. Both the variants will have Adreno 305 GPU. The chips support Miracast wireless display technology, upto 13.5MP cameras, premium audio, and 1080p video capture, playback and almost all modem technologies.
“Earlier this year, Qualcomm announced the new tiering structure for Snapdragon processors, including Snapdragon 800, 600, 400 and 200. While the Snapdragon 800 and 600 processors are clearly targeted at premier and high end smartphones, tablets and mobile computing devices, the Snapdragon 400 and Snapdragon 200 processors take Qualcomm’s technology leadership into the mid-tier and entry level smartphone segments,” Tim McDonough, Vice President, Marketing, Qualcomm Mobile & Computing noted in a blog post.
