Qualcomm reveals the first chipset of its new Mobile platform


This morning, Qualcomm announced its new entry-level 205 platform at a launch event held in New Delhi. The new SoC is designed to provide 4G LTE services and connectivity for budget phones sold in emerging markets such as Southeast Asia, India, and Latin America.

As we're looking at a system chip that is made with the intention of being present in sub-$50 mass-market phones, the specs aren't anything to write home about. The features of the 205 chipset include a Dual Core CPU at 1.1GHz, an Adreno 304 GPU, capabilities of supporting a 480p VGA display at 60 frames per second and 3MP back/front cameras. However, the new 205 is also able to achieve up to 150 Mbps download speeds on 4G, 3G, and 2G networks, and has dual SIM support on board. You can check all the major specs of the new SoC and how it compares to its predecessors in the table below.

This is the first update to the company's 200-series since the announcement of the Snapdragon 212 back in July of 2015, and the chipset is renamed under the new "Mobile" brand, as Qualcomm recently revealed that only its high-end SoC's will bear the Snapdragon label.
