Snapdragon recently introduced their afforable LTE enabled offering, Snapdragon 210 as their answer to the budget LTE offerings of MediaTek. The SOC is set to have a quad core CPU with a Andreno 304 GPU which will support 1080p displays and 8MP sensors with Zero Shutter Lag and other common camera features.
Qualcomm is also boasting the Quick Charge 2.0 technology where-in you can charge your battery up to 75% faster than before. With this initiatives made by competitors MediaTek and Snapdragon, we are expecting a huge set of new devices coming this mid-late 2014 to be LTE powered already.
Again the masses win as Qualcomm is targeting sub-$100 devices with the SoC. Right now the waiting game starts, but I'll definitely be patient as this would be a great update of the old Snapdragon 200. Hopefully, we'll see those devices on most of the Local and International brands in the Philippines right now.
