Qualcomm Adreno 510: Integrated graphics card based on the Adreno 500 architecture, like the Adreno 520 in the Snapdragon 820. Performance should be on average similar to the old Adreno 330 in the Snapdragon 801. Supports DirectX12, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

650 MSM8956: Upper middle class ARM based SoC with 6 CPU cores (64 Bit Cortex A72 and A53 mixture) and a Adreno 510 GPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


9.70":

This display format is used for small tablets and a few very big smartphones (so big that they are rather tablets). This is for customers who want a small portable tablet with a display which is at least much bigger than usual smartphone displays.
