Qualcomm 215 mobile platform announced: Key features

10 July, 2019, 22:20
According to WinFuture and its sources, Qualcomm is testing two new chip platforms designed for use with Google Wear OSdevices. It is also the first ever chipset in 2-series to come with support for HD+ resolution displays. Similarly, the Snapdragon 215 is the first in the Snapdragon 200-series to support 64-bit Android platform as well as 64-bit apps. Thanks to the Adreno 308 GPU, Qualcomm 215 boosts up to 28% increased gaming performance compared to the previous generation enabling smooth graphics for casual gaming. This gives the chipset much-needed improvements on camera support and capabilities.
"With a 64-bit CPU and dual-ISPs, the platform is a significant milestone for the expansion of the entire mobile industry", said Kedar Kondap, vice president of product management, Qualcomm Technologies. Qualcomm wants to make NFC payments normal on Android with the entry-level Snapdragon 215 mobile platform.
It also supports upto 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM, eMMC 4.5 internal flash storage and GPS/GLONASS support.
The Snapdragon 215 is the name of the SoC and it includes support for features that we have seen trickling down to budget smartphones. It will also allow you to record full HD videos on your Smartphone. The DSP doesn't just stretch audio play time, it also works for sensor processing for things like the Global Positioning System. Another first for the series is that the inclusion of this modem allows for the chip to connect to Wi-Fi 802.11ac, also known as Wi-Fi 5.
In addition to this, the 215 processor (successor to the 205 series) comes with support for Qualcomm's Quick Charge fast charging tech for up to 75% faster charging. The whole point behind possibly naming this new wearables chipset "Snapdragon 429 Wear" is because Qualcomm is basing it on the company's current Snapdragon 429 chipset, one found in HMD Global's Nokia 3.2 and Nokia 3.1. Smartphones with the 215-powered chipset will hit the market in the second-half of the year.
The Snapdragon 429 SoC, for whom the upcoming wearables processor may be named, is a quad-core chip (four cores in the upcoming Wear chip, mind you) featuring an Adreno 504 GPU, single 16MP camera support, dual 8MP camera support, as well as HD+ resolution support. Fortunately, the chip maker seems to be picking up the slack with a new SoC coming soon.
