LTE and 64-bit Support Brought Forth In Upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 410

It was only a matter of time before Qualcomm would try to enter the market with its own chipset capable of supporting 64-bit, though the processor does not appear to be of the high-end range. The Snapdragon 410, however, is a 28nm SoC that seems to be focused more on lower-end devices and emerging markets instead. The new Snapdragon is expected to arrive at manufacturers in the first half of 2014, with it reaching consumer devices somewhere in Q2 2014.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, though not as high-end as we would have hoped, does come with plenty of extra feature support. One of the main features is the LTE, which Qualcomm says is a feature it wants to bring to all of its products. In particular, this next-gen connectivity comes with multimode and multiband support, ensuring that many devices carrying the chip will work on LTE networks around the globe. Another feature of the Snapdragon 410 will be an Adreno 306 GPU, which will offer support for dual and triple-SIM devices. Other features consist of having 1080p video playback capability, a 13-megapixels camera range, Along with GPS/GLONASS, enhanced Wi-Fi connectivity, NFC and Bluetooth.

Qualcomm wants to dominate the smartphone and tablet market in terms of processor manufacturer, therefore the new Qualcomm Snapdragon will have a compatibility table spanning from Android to Windows Phone and even Firefox OS, all the way to “high-volume” devices in emerging markets which sell for under $150.

Although this is just a low-end processor that Qualcomm announced, it would not make sense if they did not release any high-end version in the near future. Especially when CES and MWC are not too far away.
