Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processors will now support Android Internet of Things operating system. Get to know the latest features and release date.
Qualcomm Technologies had just revealed its plan for adding Android Internet of Things or IoT support for the operating system. With the use of the company's Snapdragon 210 processor the plan will be put into reality, Telecom Lead reported.
The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor aims to support everything about the Internet of Things or IoT. When this happens, the Snapdragon 210 processor can support remote video monitoring, asset tracking, electronic signage, vending machines as well as payment and manufacturing.
According to Digital Trends, aside from the Android Things, Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor will be the first to support everything about LTE. The growing needs for LTE on different Android devices and other devices inspired the integration of LTE to the Qualcomm product.
If this happens, the Snapdragon 210 processor will be the first processor, and Qualcomm as the first company to offer an LTE-capable chip. Jeffrey Torrance, Qualcomm's Vice President stated that the 4G LTE feature of the Snapdragon 210 processor is also combined with other wireless technologies needed to the Google Cloud platform.
With the use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor, developers can now create cost-effective devices as well as applications. It is because its 4G LTE connectivity is broader for either consumer and industries.
Aside from the 4G LTE connectivity, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor will also support other features. It will support high-quality multimedia experiences including Full-HD playback, power efficiency, and Qualcomm Adreno 304 graphics.
Now, the support of Snapdragon 210 on Android Things was just a start. It is because Qualcomm also opts for its consumer-friendly solutions following the LTE chip feature. Unfortunately, though the Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 LTE chip will be introduced at the Mobile World Congress next week, it will not be launched this year.
