6 new and coming Android smartphones powered by the 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor
That aside, what makes the Snapdragon 615 processor special? Well, it brings forth the industry's first octa-core 64-bit CPU architecture with integrated Cat. 4 4G LTE. Made on a 28nm process, the CPU is formed by a combination of four 1.7GHz ARM Cortex A53 cores and four 1GHz Cortex A53 cores, paired with the Adreno 405 GPU, a Hexagon V50 modem and app DSP, and Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 tech among other goodies. While the processor is no performance beast, it packs enough punch to deliver precisely half of the 32-bit Snapdragon 805's performance while staying energy-efficient. This is enough power for everything, short of the most demanding 3D games and emulators.
So what are some Snapdragon 615-powered phones? We've rounded up six of them, mostly new and coming. Aside from the fine processor we're talking about, they stand out with design, features, and reasonable prices.
