    Qualcomm Officially Unveils their Lower-End and Mid-Range 200 and 400 Chips

    Qualcomm's marketing team is on a roll this week sharing new info about their processors. At CES last month they showed off their hot new highe-end processors the Snapdragon 600 and the Snapdragon 800. Today they just shared their lower-end and mid-range chips to round out their lineup. The chips are the Snapdragon 200 and 400. Here's a quote with the details,

    The Snapdragon 400 has two possible configuration options. The first one comes with dual Krait cores (first seen on the Snapdragon S4 from last year) clocked up to 1.7 GHz. The second option consists of four ARM Cortex-A7 cores running at 1.4 GHz. This is interesting, because Qualcomm very, very rarely uses unmodified ARM designs in its products. And to give you an idea about what products the 400 will be competing against, know that MediaTek’s first quad-core CPU, the MT6589, uses four Cortex-A7 cores as well.

    The Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 also comes with Adreno 305 graphics, and support for TD-SCDMA, DC-HSPA+, CDMA, as well as dual-standby or dual-active dual-SIM.

    The Snapdragon 200 series is apparently meant for ‘entry-level’ smartphones, yet how cheap those will be remains to be seen. This is a quad-core design, with four Cortex-A5 cores clocked at up to 1.4 GHz, an Adreno 203 GPU, CDMA and UMTS support, dual-standby dual-SIM, and camera support up to 8 MP.
    They didn't share when we will start seeing devices equipped with these chips, but we will do our best to keep you apprised when we find out more. Of course, devices powered by their 600 and 800 series will be far more exciting, so stay tuned because we will definitely share anything we find on those ASAP!

    It's certainly going to be a thrilling year for processor advancements in the mobile world. Will Qualcomm continue their reign as the "go to" manufacturer of mobile chips, or will one of their competitors like Samsung, NVIDIA, LG and Huawei pull ahead?

    Thanks for all the tips, grenefroggie!
