Qualcomm unveils a pair of Snapdragon S4 chipsets
Qualcomm announced that it is adding a pair of new chipsets to its existing Snapdragon S4 family. Named MSM8625 and MSM8225, both chips incorporate a dual-core processor that tops at 1GHz, Adreno 203 graphics, and a 3G modem.

Thanks to their compatibility with older chipsets, such as the MSM7x27A and MSM7x25A, a phone manufacturer can start using the new chips in its Snapdragon S1-based handset designs without the need to alter them. That enables companies to quickly and efficiently produce budget-minded handsets that offer decent performance. The devices that will have the new chips inside them will most likely be marketed in countries that are currently transitioning to 3G wireless connectivity.

Companies will be able to start using the MSM8225 and MSM8625 in the first half of 2012. It is said that mostly Android devices will sport the new chips, yet other platforms are not out of the question. Feel free to check out the press release below for further details.
