Qualcomm has just unveiled a new mobile chip that uses the company's new naming structure. Dubbed 205 Mobile Platform, this new chipset targets low-end handsets with a dual-core processor setup, bringing 4G LTE connectivity to this sector of the market.

Qualcomm 205 Mobile Platform's processor runs at 1.1 GHz and has an unspecified Adreno graphics adapter by its side. Sadly, this GPU can only output 480p video at 60 fps. Running a Linux-based OS, this mobile chipset promises to offer excellent autonomy and a decent set of features - Bluetooth 4.1, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, ANT+, FM radio, two 3 MP cameras, dual-SIM, HD video streaming. The new chipset is pin-compatible with the existing Qualcomm Snapdragon 210/212 so manufacturers can easily incorporate it into existing designs.

According to the official press release, the Qualcomm 205 Mobile Platform is already available for manufacturers and the first devices to use it should surface as soon as this year's second quarter.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
