Qualcomm has a new mid-range processor coming (and it’s a 64-bit LTE chip)


Last month Qualcomm announced an upgraded version of their very popular Snapdragon 800, the Snapdragon 805, and now they’re adding something to the middle of their roadmap in the form of the Snapdragon 410.

The newly announced processor, which is expected to become available closer to the end of 2014, is remarkable in that it will integrate LTE support and it will be a 64-bit processor – impressive for a chip that is targeted at lower-cost mobile devices. The average price range for tech the Snapdragon 410 will be found in is expected to be $150 – around the R1,500 mark. Next year should, with the launch of Qualcomm’s new baby, see LTE springing up in lower-cost devices across the board.

The Snapdragon 410 will be made up of four Cortex A57 cores, reports Ars Technica, supporting the 64-bit ARMv8 instruction set and it’ll include a new Adreno 306 GPU. Unlike the upgraded Snapdragon 805, it won’t support 4K video playback but it will be capable of rendering 1080p video.
