Qualcomm today announced new Snapdragon application processors for mid-range and volume mobile devices. The Snapdragon 653, Snapdragon 626, and Snapdragon 427 are all paired with Qualcomm's X9 LTE modem with Cat 7 download (300Mbps) and Cat 13 upload (150Mbps) speeds; 2x20 MHz Carrier Aggregation; 64-QAM on the uplink; and VoLTE with Enhanced Voice Services. The Snapdragon 653 improves upon the Snapdragon 652 with faster CPU/GPU performance and double the RAM (now 8 GB). The Snapdragon 626 improves upon the Snapdragon 625 with quicker CPU performance, a better antenna, and wider software compatibility. The Snapdragon 427 is an update to the Snapdragon 425 with better CPU/GPU speeds and Qualcomm's TruSignal antenna tuning. Qualcomm says the Snapdragon 653 and 626 will reach mobile devices before the end of the year, but the 427 won't arrive until early 2017.

The Big 2

I hope Mediatek follows suit and tweaks their most prolific processors as well.
