Qualcomm today announced an expansion of its SnapDragon S4 class of mobile processors and the enhancement of its SnapDragon S1 products for entry-level smartphones. The new S4 processors are based on Qualcomm's Krait CPU architecture, which Qualcomm says was designed to offer the highest level of performance and power management possible. The handful of new S4 processors include the MSM8660A, MSM8260A, MSM8630, MSM8230, MSM8627, MSM8227, APQ8060A and APQ8030. All the MSM chips offer phone and tablet makers a wide selection of wireless radio technologies, including EV-DO, HSPA+, TD-SCDMA, LTE FDD, LTE TDD, and Wi-Fi. Qualcomm expects the first wave os S4-based hardware to reach the market in early 2012. Qualcomm today also announced an upgrade to four of its existing Snapdragon S1 mobile processors. The MSM7225A, MSM7625A, MSM7227A and MSM7627A have been upgraded to deliver better performance for entry-level smartphones. Qualcomm didn't provide details on what sort of upgrades were given to the chips.
