Qualcomm rolls out 8-core Snapdragon 615 CPU

Qualcomm on Monday kicked off Mobile World Congress with a pair of new mobile processors. Today sees the chipmaker adding the Snapdragon 615 and 610 to its lineup.

The Snapdragon 615 is the company’s first commercial octa-core CPU solution with integrated LTE and 64-bit capabilities. Yeah, we’re talking next-level stuff. Featuring support for a wide variety of LTE bands, HSPA+ 42, and CDMA, it also packs in an Adreno 405 GPU.

The Snapdragon 610 is a quad-core version of the chipset with many of the same features.

Both the Snapdragon 615 and 610 processors will begin sampling in the third quarter of the year with the first commercial devices arriving by the end of 2014.
