Mobile chip manufacturer Qualcomm has added two new chipsets to its line of Snapdragon S4 SoCs. Both chipsets feature a quad-core processor and include an Adreno graphics processing unit, allowing host devices to record and play back 1080p videos and feature up to 13MP cameras. Qualcomm also claims that the new chipsets will feature improved battery life, which is often a key shortfall in many of today's mobile processors.
Recently, more and more vendors have been opting for processors in Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 series on the basis of their outstanding performance and battery life when compared to many other mobile SoCs. Over 100 devices featuring Qualcomm processors have been released to date, including the Windows Phone 8, certain versions of the Samsung Galaxy S3, and many of Nokia's Lumia 8xx and 9xx series of mobile phones. This gives Qualcomm plenty of potential for growth in the near future, so we can hope to see many more chipsets revealed over the next couple of months.
