Qualcomm introduces Snapdragon 210 for entry-level devices
On Tuesday, Qualcomm introduced the Snapdragon 210 processor. Designed for entry-level smartphones and tablets, the Snapdragon 210 offers multimode 3G/4G LTE and LTE Dual SIM configurations at low costs. According to Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 210 offers LTE connectivity fully integrated with 4G LTE-Advanced Cat 4 Carrier Aggregation, LTE Broadcast and LTE Dual SIM/Dual Standby.

The new Snapdragon 210 also allows for 1080p playback with hardware HEVC. It also brings the combination of performance and power efficiency to the entry-level niche, thanks to the combination of quad CPU with the Adreno 304 GPU. With Quick Charge 2.0, the Snapdragon 210 will allow batteries to charge up 75% faster than devices that don't have fast charging technology inside. The chip supports an 8MP camera, Zero Shutter Lag, HDR, auto focus, auto white balance and auto exposure.

Qualcomm also announced its new LTE-equipped tablet reference design with models available powered by the Snapdragon 210 and Snapdragon 410. The reference design version of the Snapdragon 210, available for both smartphones and tablets, includes 4G LTE-Advanced Cat 4 Carrier Aggregation. The reference design version of the Snapdragon 410 offers 64-bit technology, the Adreno 306 GPU, and an integrated 4G LTE World Mode modem, with CAT4 speeds of up to 150 Mbps.

Two new 28nm transceivers were also unveiled by Qualcomm. The WTR4905 and WTR2955 are designed for the Snapdragon 210 and Snapdragon 410, respectively. Both help low and mid-range multimode devices support LTE, and LTE Advanced.

Qualcomm should have kept with the same number scheme. For all the 10's and made it 64 bit. Just like the other model series from Qualcomm. The fastest this processor gets up to is only 1.1Ghz. However the GPU is faster and it has LTE.

HEVC (H.265) is a video codec, its the successor to AVC (H.264), used for many types, e.g. MP4, MKV, M4V, MOV,...
Its supposed twice as efficient
i.e. a 1GB HEVC MP4 video should look as good as a 2GB AVC MP4 video

I wonder if this chip will be efficient enough for smartwatches
LG/Samsung are currently using a 400 but with 1 core enabled, this chip might be better
