Qualcomm today announced its latest chipset, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset with integrated 4G LTE World Mode. It is geared for smartphones headed to emerging markets such as China where LTE deployments are beginning to roll out.
Manufactured using 28nm process technology, the Snapdragon 410 comes with 64-bit ARM-based application processors, an Adreno 306 GPU (for 1080p video playback and cameras up to 13MP), support for dual and triple SIMs and integrated 4G LTE and 3G cellular connectivity. The usual support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM and NFC functionality and all major navigation constellations including GPS, GLONASS and China’s new BeiDou, will be provided by Qualcomm’s RF360 chip.
“We are excited to bring 4G LTE to highly affordable smartphones at a sub $150 (about 1,000 RMB) price point with the introduction of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor,” said Jeff Lorbeck, senior vice president and chief operating officer, Qualcomm Technologies, China. “The Snapdragon 410 chipset will also be the first of many 64-bit capable processors as Qualcomm Technologies helps lead the transition of the mobile ecosystem to 64-bit processing.”
Qualcomm expects to begin sampling the Snapdragon 410 in the first half of 2014. Mobile devices using it should hit the market in the second half of the year.
