Qualcomm rolls out two new quad Snapdragons

by on06 December 2012

Snappy and optimized for China

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 are the new black and the company is now expanding the series with two new quad-core parts optimized for China.

The MSM8226 and MSM8626 feature 3G connectivity and Adreno 305 graphics, capable of supporting 13-megapixel cameras and 1080p video capture.

Both chips are stamped out in 28nm and they support multi-SIM capabilities, which we are told are rather big in the Chinese market. They also include a multi-mode radio transceiver necessary to navigate the People Republic of China’s TD-SCDMA, CDMA1xAdv and HSPA+ networks, as well as GLONASS and Beidou.

The new chips will sample in the second quarter of 2013, and as you’ve probably guessed, they are not really meant for the global market.
