It’s quite interesting to see that Qualcomm is paying more attention to the entry-level segment of smartphones with the unveiling of the Snapdragon 215 SoC. Introduced recently, the chipset is primed for fast performance with its 64-bit processor and swift Adreno 308 GPU. The chipset belongs to the Qualcomm 2-series streamlined for low-end phones.

As a stripped-down version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425, this chip runs on the 28nm FinFET node. Although that could be old, there’s something to cheer about – the Quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU. This processor takes a 64-bit architecture meaning its processes are faster than those of Cortex-A7 and provides compatibility with higher Android versions.

Also, it gives manufacturers the freedom to try out new design trends as the phone supports 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It gives room for notch cutout to appear smaller. For its its display resolution, it is pegged at 720 x 1560 pixels, a much improved HD+ resolution.

Videos of 720p and 1080p resolutions are also in the mix. For battery charging, the chip provides Quick Charge 1.0 to improve the speed of the device when recharging. The battery life is also quite impressive.

NFC highlights the connectivity relayed by the Snapdragon 215 chip. It also offers Wi-Fi 5 (a/b/g/n/ac) and Bluetooth 4.2 support. Undoubtedly, LTE connectivity is on board. It has a downlink and uplink of 150/50Mbps. There’s also dual VoLTE on this X5 LTE modem.
