When we reviewed the Moto E recently, it was actually a smartphone that is claimed to put an end to cheap feature phones, however the Snapdragon 200 chip onboard isn’t going to satisfy the power user in an entry level package. Qualcomm has announced its new Snapdragon 210 SoC, which is a new Quad-Core SoC designed for entry-level devices. The Snapdragon 210 SoC have clock speeds of 1.1GHz running on the Cortex A7 architecture, it will support LTE-A networks with speeds up to 150Mbps downlink, Dual SIM standby, QuickCharge 2.0, Bluetooth 4.1 and an improved Adreno 304 GPU.

The SoC has a reduced and more efficient 28nm process while supporting LPDDR3 533Mhz memory and eMMC 4.5 storage standards, it will also support cameras up to 8 Megapixel with Full HD video recording and playback capabilities. With all these new and exciting features, the Snapdragon 210 SoC will finally enable entry-level devices capabilities that have been missing for some time, and we should be seeing Dual SIM smartphones with LTE network support. This is a great news for smartphone makers as they can continue to focus on manufacturing great entry-level products without compromising its user experience for power.

We should be seeing devices with the chip around early 2015 and expect the prices to be around $100, so let’s see how other chipmakers like Intel and Mediatek have up their sleeves, since they are pretty much the ones that triggered off the cheap smartphone war.
