Qualcomm debuts two more Snapdragon SoCs

Last week Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 616 processor, which is basically a Snapdragon 615 chip with higher core speed and an integrated X5 LTE Cat 4 modem. And when we thought there wouldn’t be any other SoCs, Qualcomm announced two additional chips. The newcomers are called Snapdragon 212 and Snapdragon 412 and they have come here to retire the Snapdragon 210 and 410 processors.

The Snapdragon 212 comes with four Cortex-A7 cores and Adreno 304 graphics but this time the cores run at 1.3 GHz, instead at 1.1 GHz, as in the Snapdragon 210 SoC. The GPU is also clocked higher but there’s no information what clock speeds it sports now. There’s also an integrated X5 LTE Cat 4 (150 Mbit/sec) modem, which happens to be the only new thing in the Snapdragon 212.

The story of the Snapdragon 412 is similar – the processor now runs at 1.4 GHz instead of at 1.2 GHz and there’s a faster GPU but no information on how much faster it is. The chip also has the same X5 LTE Cat 4 (150 Mbit/sec) modem as in the Snapdragon 212 but there’s one important difference here – the Snapdragon 412 can now work with DDR2/DDR3 memory at 600 MHz, while the Snapdragon 410 can only function with DDR2/DDR3 at up to 533 MHz.

Devices with the new chips will be on the market soon.
