We all remember the Qualcomm executive calling Apple’s A7 64-bit chip a gimmick, after which he was reassigned. Gimmick or not, the company that just recently announced its Snapdragon 805 SoC is now announcing the Snapdragon 410, “the first of many 64-bit capable processors as Qualcomm Technologies helps lead the transition of the mobile ecosystem to 64-bit processing”, as described by Jeff Lorbeck, senior vice president and chief operating officer, Qualcomm Technologies, China.
The Snapdragon 410 also has integrated 4G LTE World Mode, as well as the Adreno 306 GPU for 1080p video playback and up to a 13 Megapixel camera support. While lower-end, and probably aimed at budget devices from emerging markets, the Snapdragon 410 will begin “sampling in the first half of 2014 and expected to be in commercial devices in the second half of 2014″.
