Qualcomm has unveiled three low to mid end processors today , the three processors - the Snapdragon 212 , 412 and the 616 are new additions to the Snapdragon lineup with the 616 taking the top dog spot on the list as it replaces the mid range Snapdragon 615 used in many phones today , The 412 replaces the older Snapdragon 410 and the 212 replaces the older 210 Soc announced last year
The Snapdragon 616 brings a minor refresh to the already superb 64bit Snapdragon 615 Soc , the only speed difference comes from the increased clock speed of one of the 4 core clusters found on this 4+4 processor , the rest of the specs including the Adreno 405 graphics , X5 LTE and the 28mm die is left unchanged
Snapdragon 212 is Qualcomm's ultra budget smartphone chip designed at below $100 smartphones , the new 212 has a small clock speed increase from 1.1 Ghz to 1.3 Ghz which is a little good news for those of you who want a affordable handset . The remaining specs , including support for the X5 modem and 8mp cameras are still added .The chip still works on the 32bit Cortex A7 platform and is the only member to remain out of the 64bit craze .
