Qualcomm 215 brings performance and battery gains for entry-level phones
Qualcomm just unveiled its latest addition to the 2-series mobile platform, the Qualcomm 215.
The Qualcomm 215 mobile platform is the first of its series to have a 64-bit CPU; it has 4 ARM Cortex A-53 cores for better performance and longer battery life. The performance and battery gains are possible thanks to the integrated Qualcomm Hexagon DSP and Adreno 308 GPU.
Other features include Qualcomm Quick Charge technology, dual ISPs to support dual cameras, support for HD+ display, an integrated Qualcomm Snapdragon X5 modem with LTE CAT 4 support for download speeds of up to 150Mbps, and support for Ultra HD voice calls and Dual SIM with VoLTE.
Consumer devices powered by Qualcomm 215 are expected to be launched in the second half of the year.
