Qualcomm is determined to compete with the likes of MediaTek and Samsung when it comes chipsets for budget-friendly smartphones. The US chipmaker has just announced a brand new mobile processor aimed at low-end phones, the 215.
The new Qualcomm 215 CPU offers 50% increased performance in comparison with the previous 2xx generation. More importantly, it’s the first chipset for low-end smartphones that supports 64-bit architecture, which translates in performance boost and better device longevity.
According to Qualcomm, the first commercial devices based on the new chipset are expected to be available in the second half of 2019, so that’s pretty soon. For the tech-savvy, the full list of specs is now available on Qualcomm’s website.
