Qualcomm today announced the addition of two more processors to its line of Snapdragon S4 Play chips. Both the MSM8225Q and MSM8625Q are updates to previous processors and now support four cores instead of two. These quad-core processors include LPDDR2 memory, which boosts bus bandwidth for intensive video encode/decode on 720p HD displays. The MSM8625Q supports Qualcomm's multimode UMTS/CDMA modem, and the MSM8225Q supports Qualcomm's UMTS modem. The processors also include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and FM radios. These processors are meant to help smartphone makers migrate designs based on S1 processors to S4 processors, meaning they are for entry-level, high-volume smartphones. Qualcomm also announced the Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8930, which supports Chinese operators' LTE-TDD and TD-SCDMA networks. All three chipsets will be sampling by the end of the year, and are expected to ship during the first quarter of 2013.
