Qualcomm has announced their first 64-bit mobile processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, which is an updated version of the Snapdragon 400 mobile processor.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 401 comes with an Adreno 306 GPU, it supports full HD video playback in 1080p, and up to a 13 megapixel camera, plus it comes with WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC, plus 3G and 4G LTE.
“We are excited to bring 4G LTE to highly affordable smartphones at a sub $150 ( ̴ 1,000 RMB) price point with the introduction of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor,” said Jeff Lorbeck, senior vice president and chief operating officer, Qualcomm Technologies, China. “The Snapdragon 410 chipset will also be the first of many 64-bit capable processors as Qualcomm Technologies helps lead the transition of the mobile ecosystem to 64-bit processing.”
The Snapdragon 410 is expected to launch next year, and Qualcomm have said that this new 64-bit mobile processor will be available in smartphones in the second half of 2014.
The Motorola Moto G currently comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, so we could possibly see the handsets successor feature this new Snapdragon 410 processor, which would mean a 64-bit smartphone for under $200.
We suspect the new Snapdragon 400 mobile processor will also be popular with other handset makers for budget devices, and are expecting to see a number of new devices with this processor next year.
