Qualcomm 205

The Qualcomm 205 (sometimes also called Snapdragon 205) is an entry level SoC for Android based smartphones. It contains two ARM Cortex-A7 CPU cores (dual-core) with a clock rate of up to 1.1 GHz, an Adreno 304 graphics card, an LPDDR2/LPDDR3 memory controller (max. 384 MHz), a eMMC 4.5 port, and a LTE Cat 4 radio module.

The performance of the Cortex-A7 cores is positioned in the low end of 2017. The two low clocked A7 cores should lead to noticable lags in browsing and using demanding apps. 

The integrated Adreno 304 graphics card is clocked at 400 MHz and also positioned in the entry level. Therefore, demanding games may not run smoothly in high settings.

The SoC integrates Bluetooth 4.1 + BLE, 802.11n (2.4 GHz) WiFi, and a Cat 4 4G-LTE-Modem (LTE FDD, LTE TDD, WCDMA (DC-HSDPA, HSUPA), CDMA1x, EV-DO Rev. B, TD-SCDMA and GSM/EDGE) with a max. speed of 150 Mbps.

The SoC is manufactured in a 28 nm LP process (at TSMC most likely). Due to the low energy consumption of the SoC it is also suited for small smartphones.
