Qualcomm reveals lower end Snapdragon 200 and 400 processors
posted by Alan F. / Feb 20, 2013, 5:30 PM
The Snapdragon 200 brings you quad ARM Cortex-A5 CPUs running as high as 1.4GHz per core with the Adreno 203 GPU crunching the graphics. It enables "high-accuracy" GPS and HD video playback as well as supporting dual SIMs and camera support of up to 8MP. Pricing was not disclosed, but just like the flour used in those cakes you eat, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 are baked into the final product.
We've already seen that the LG Optimus G Pro and the HTC One are coming to market with the 600 on board and it looks like the Samsung Galaxy S IV could be powered by the 600 as well.

Does that mean low end phones getting quad core processors also...? That'd be pretty crazy... the average consumer wouldn't know what the differences are between low/mid/high end phones.

Qualcomm is the only company that can mass produce this cpu's even Samsung cannot do it and were running out of stock with their Exynos. Qualcomm cpu's has been used by LG, Sony, HTC, Nokia, Blackberry, Motorola and even Samsung. They are the no.1 player for this kind of product

For the US.....After Texas Instruments didnt make any new chips, the Exynos wasnt and might not be that available in devices in the US.....Apple's chip is only used in iDevices.......Snapdragon and Nvidia had the US of A all to themselves. Qualcomm handled LTE better than Nvidia....it woulda been a crying shame if Qualcomm didnt take advantage of it. And now at this point in time....performance between all these different chips is so similar, it doesnt really matter now. I have a Maxx HD with a dual core chip....and the only thing I want it to do is handle switching between listening to music and taking a phone call at the same time better. And handle listening to music and browsing the web at the same time better. It hiccups at times doing those things. Most every thing else it handles good. All I want is better multi tasking. I dont care about the best benchmarks.

There are two smartphone manufacturers that are known to have low-end quad core devices I know ZTE has at least two of them, one is a 1.3Ghz Quad-Core and a 1.2Ghz Quad-Core and these devices are said to cost anywhere between $260-$340 a device.
