Qualcomm Grows the Snapdragon 200 Processor
Qualcomm has expanded its Snapdragon 200 processor family in order to bring more features to entry-level devices. There are six new processors that come in both dual-core and quad-core configurations. They are all manufactured using 28nm processes and include support for HSPA+ and TD-SCDMA for Asian markets. The chips can support dual cameras with main cameras as high as 8 megapixels and user-facing cameras as high as 5 megapixels, they support Dual- and Triple-SIM cards, and are packaged with the Adreno 302 GPU. The new chips also support Quick Charge 1.0 for faster battery charging. Qualcomm expects its handset partners to release new devices based on these chips later this year.
