Qualcomm Technologies has just released Snapdragon 215 – the latest solution in the 2-series platform. The company said the platform aims to provide a better mobile experience, along with reliable and sustainable performance for affordable smartphone customers. I heard that VSmart will be the first company in the world to use this chip on their phones, towards more users, especially in the low-end segment but still has many previous capital characteristics. only on higher machines.
With the 215 chip, Qualcomm talks about its remarkable points about battery performance and life, entertainment support features and support connections.
The first is about performance and battery life. Equipped with four ARM Cortex-A53 cores, Qualcomm 215 is designed to enhance CPU performance by up to 50% over the previous generation. The first contribution of the 64-bit CPU in this 2-series represents a long step in performance, aimed at supporting 64-bit applications, extending the life of the machine in application trends. growing faster and faster today. To provide sustainable performance, Qualcomm 215 integrates Qualcomm Hexagon DSP, designed to support music playback for more than 5 days.
In addition, Qualcomm Adreno 308 GPU and display technologies support video playback for more than 10 hours. Qualcomm 215 platform also supports Qualcomm Quick Charge technology, allowing users to charge 75% faster than traditional methods, which reduces wasted electricity and heat, as well as shortening charging time, while performing productivity was almost unchanged.
About entertainment support. Qualcomm 215 is the first chip in the 2-series equipped with dual ISPs, allowing dual camera support. Combined with an existing third-party ecosystem, dual cameras can support optical zoom and depth sensor, providing more detailed and vivid image quality, capable of capturing images up to 13MP.
In particular, Qualcomm 215 is the first platform to support HD + resolution among 2xx chips, allowing the expansion of the frame rate, giving users more space to display information, see more and experience. Better entertainment. Not only that, thanks to the Adreno 308 GPU, Qualcomm 215 increased gaming performance by up to 28% compared to the previous generation, providing smooth graphics when playing games.
Regarding connectivity, Qualcomm 215 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon X5 modem that supports LTE Cat 4 with Carrier Aggregation, designed to improve data speed faster and increase download speeds up to 150Mbps. This is the first 2-series platform that supports EVS (Ultra HD Voice Calls) voice calls and Dual Sim with dual Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE), allowing multiple SIM usage for simultaneous data and voice calls 4G LTE is high quality, separates work and personal accounts, as well as optimizes mobile connection costs to leverage multiple plans.

Kedar Kondap, Vice President of Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., said. “Equipped with 64-bit CPUs and dual ISPs, Qualcomm 215 Mobile Platform is an important milestone for the development of the entire mobile industry. We are raising the overall level of quality for mass market devices and delivering unprecedented experiences in the 2-series. ”Commercial equipment operating on Qualcomm 215 platform is expected. present in the second half of 2019.
It is known that Vinsmart also cooperated closely with Qualcomm to deploy using Snapdragon 215 chip on their products in the future.
Ms. Le Thi Thu Thuy, Vice President, Vingroup said. “We are excited to continue working with Qualcomm Technologies. Qualcomm Technologies' leading integrated technologies in Qualcomm 215 mobile platform will help us develop and expand our smartphone product portfolio while improving the quality of mass market devices. . We will continue to work together to bring an exciting and high-end mobile experience to users around the world. ”
