They will integrate 4G LTE and 3G cellular connectivity for all major modes and frequency bands across the globe and include support for dual and triple sim support.
The Snapdragon 410 chipsets also feature Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM and NFC functionality, and support all major navigation constellations: GPS, GLONASS, and China’s new BeiDou, which helps deliver enhanced accuracy and speed of Location data to Snapdragon-enabled handsets. The chipset will also support all major operating systems, including the Android, Windows Phone and Firefox OS.
“We are excited to bring 4G LTE to highly affordable smartphones at a sub $150 price point”, said Jeff Lorbeck, senior vice president and chief operating officer, Qualcomm Technologies, China. (This will be below 10K on a conversion at an exchange rate of $1 = Rs. 61.19) “The Snapdragon 410 chipset will also be the first of many 64-bit capable processors as Qualcomm Technologies helps lead the transition of the mobile ecosystem to 64-bit processing” he adds.
Further, the Snapdragon 410 chipsets feature integrated 4G LTE and also support 3G connectivity, apart from support modes for dual-SIM or even triple SIM.
The processor is expected to begin sampling in the first half of 2014, and will power commercial devices in the second half of 2014.
