Qualcomm announces 6 new Snapdragon 200 chipsets
« on: Jun 20, 2013, 01:31 PM »
Qualcomm has secured the high-end with its Snapdragon 600 chipsets (and soon the 800) and has turned its attention to entry-level phones with six new Snapdragon 200 chips. They will be available in Qualcomm Reference Design (QRD) platforms in late 2013.

The new Snapdragon 200 chipsets come in dual and quad-core flavors (8x10 and 8x12) and will be built on a 28nm process (same as the 600 and 800,  current 200s are made at 45nm).

The new 200 chipsets support cameras up to 8MP and come with a new Adreno 302 GPU, which Qualcomm promises will deliver "class-leading graphics performance" (current models use Adreno 203). There's Quick Charge support too.

The chipsets support 3G HSPA+ (up to 21Mbps), TD-SCDMA for emerging markets in China and elsewhere, and can work in dual-SIM, dual-standby (or dual-active) phones and even tri-SIM, tri-standby handsets.

We can expect to find Snapdragon 200 chipsets inside entry-level Android, Windows Phone and Firefox handsets, but it's too soon to be talking about launch dates.
