This chip is mainly focused on the market of low-budget phones. Qualcomm is targeting on devices of $150 and lower, they want to give them 64-bit technology experience in low price
It is expected that this 64-bit chip will show on devices in second half of 2014. After Apple’s A7 64-bit chip Qualcomm made the 64-bit world hot again, this snapdragon 64-bit 28nm chip is targeted at emerging Chinese market.
Apple devices which hold the possession of 64-bit processor lands in premium devices like iPhone 5s, iPad air, which are pricy and doesn’t comes in everyone’s range. So Qualcomm will give same technology to low-budget smartphones.
