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
