These chipsets are also built on a 12nm process, as opposed to the now used 28nm process. Longer lasting battery, better-looking tall displays, dual cameras and much more is in the offing, giving a major boost to the competition in the budget space. This Chip is compatible with dual cameras and it will have a 64-Bit CPU. The aspect ratio isn't restricted to 16:9 like the SD212 but also includes 19:9 aspect ratio support.
The WinFuture report suggests that Qualcomm is working on a Snapdragon Wear 429 chipset (or might be Snapdragon Wear 2700), which is said to be built on 64-bit architecture - a significant shift from the current chipsets. According to Qualcomm, the Adreno 308 GPU gives up to 28 per cent boost in gaming performance compared to the previous generation.
While the Snapdragon 215 has a number of great improvements. The Snapdragon 215 supports dual cameras and enable better portrait results. Qualcomm continues to support two sensors, of course with a double ISP of 12 bits. The cameras can also capture video in full HD, 1080p resolution. The Qualcomm 2-series doesn't come with Snapdragon.
For superior cellular connectivity at home or on the go, the Qualcomm 215 featuring the integrated Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X5 modem supports LTE Cat 4 with Carrier Aggregation for faster data rates and download speeds up to 150Mbps. While the Snapdragon 430 and 429 are often found in the smartphones that cost anywhere between $130 and $150, the new 215 SoC will be primarily featured in devices that cost between $75 and $120. In addition to Qualcomm Hexagon DSP.
In terms of connectivity, it supports WiFi 802.11b/g/n ac MU-MIMO, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.2 and also NFC which is one of the big surprises in this respect. Increasingly, smartphone makers are making the leap towards more powerful Qualcomm 6 Series for their mobile devices.
The new mobile platform also features dual SIM with dual VoLTE support and ultra HD calling or EVS (Enhanced Voice Service) on entry-level smartphones. For the moment, we don't know when the first phones will arrive that use it. Based on Qualcomm's own tests using a reference device with a 3000mAh battery pack, the Snapdragon 215 supports up to 10 hours of video playback and up to 20 hours of voice calls.
