Qualcomm, an American semiconductor company known for its line of mobile processors and SoC (system on chip), announced yesterday two new chipsets designed for entry-level and mid-range smart devices.

The Snapdragon 200 and 400 are the younger siblings of the current 600 and 800 chipsets from Qualcomm on which current high-end phones are running.

The Snapdragon 400 will find its way to mid-range smartphones and tablets and will offer performance, connectivity options and improved battery life. It will be available in either dual-core or quad-core variants and will include features as support for modern cellular radios, 1080p HD video playback and capture, support for dual SIM cards, support for up to 13.5 megapixel cameras and an Adreno 305 GPU.

On the other hand the Snapdragon 200 will provide a balance of value and performance as well as improved battery life for entry-level devices. The chip will include a quad-core ARM Cortex A5 clocked up to 1.4GHz per core, an Adreno 203, support for HD video playback, dual SIM cards and support for up to 8 megapixels in the camera.

Both chips will be made available later this year.
