Qualcomm has introduced a new chipset – Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 for entry-level phones. The new chipset is the upgraded version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 with a faster GPU and support for dual cameras and it’s the first of its kind to be equipped with a 64-bit CPU.

The Qualcomm 215  chipset will be integrated into smartphones that will be presented in the second half of 2019, which will now be able to count on a series of features that previously could only be found on higher-end chips. This will allow manufacturers to make cheap devices that will not have to give up Dual SIM connectivity with Dual VoLTE, a double ISP and much more.
