Qualcomm Announces the Snapdragon 615, First Octa-core Chipset with LTE and 64 Bit Capabilities

Qualcomm made headlines yesterday with the Snapdragon 805 making an appearance in the new Galaxy S5. Today, Qualcomm announced another chipset aimed at mid range devices across the world. The Snapdragon 610 and 615 are both octa-core chipset devices that feature a spectrum of LTE bands so OEMs can use them in devices in different markets.

The best part about this set of chips is the different LTE bands that it offers. This allows one chip to work across 5 different LTE bands that you can find in different countries, all while working with HSPA+ and CDMA. To give this set of processors a little extra power, Qualcomm is bringing in theĀ Adreno 405 GPU. The Adreno 400 GPUs are the same one from the higher end Snapdragon 800 line that we see in the Xperia Z2 and Galaxy S5, so the graphics will be no slouch.

Qualcomm bringing a lot of technology to the table for these processors. Mid range devices around the world should benefit once these are picked up by OEMs.

    Aha, I knew ya had something up your sleeve Qualcomm. Can’t wait to see it in action. And benchmarks (even though those don’t really offer anything new)

  • More brownie points for Qualcomm

  • bobbyp

    The GS5 has an 801 not 805.

    • He said the 800 line, not the 805 in particular.

      EDIT: Nevermind, glossed over the pink text lol.

        “with the Snapdragon 805 making an appearance in the S5”

      • aye_winchell

        says 800 line at end of second paragraph but state 805 in the S5 in the first sentence of the first paragragh, i have no idea if that is accuarate or not but i thought that i read yesterday that it had the 801 not the 805.

          He must had been excited to write in the #5 that he put it on the chips model as well as on the GS5…. -_-

      It also mentions the Adreno 400 and I thought the GS5 was using the 330 or something like that? Which is it?
