Qualcomm gives a detailed look at the mid-range Snapdragon 200 and 400 series of processors
Qualcomm told us all about its high-end chips due to launch in mid-2013, but now it’s ready to share the full scoop on its mid-range oriented Snapdragon 200 and 400 chipsets.
Starting with the Snapdragon 400, it includes two Krait cores clocked at 1.7GHz joined by quad 1.4GHz Cortex-A7 cores; Adreno 305 GPU takes care of gaming and Qualcomm says is highly responsive for web browsing and rendering web pages.
The Snapdragon 400 has a built-in modem with support for TDSCDMA, DC-HSPA+ (42Mbps), 1x Advanced, W+G CDMA, and multi-SIM capabilities of Dual SIM, Dual Standby (DSDS) and Dual SIM, Dual Active (DSDA). Up to 13.5 megapixel camera sensors are supported, to go with the 1080p video capture and playback and wireless connections via Miracast.
Moving over to the lower-end Snapdragon 200, we see a quad-core Cortex-A5 CPU, clocked at up to 1.4GHz and Adreno 203 GPU driving the graphics department. The chipset supports HD video playback only, LPDDR2 RAM, GPS and multi-SIM, plus cameras with up to 8 megapixel resolution.
Here’s hoping we see the new chipsets debut in some new phones once MWC kicks off in couple of days.
