There s not a soul in the world that loves smartphones but doesn t know
anything about Qualcomm. The company is already famous for its
processors, and this year alone we ve had the pleasure of seeing in
action those fast 1GHz Snapdragon chips.
Qualcomm is ready to offer us even more and that s why it has officially
revealed a new line of mainstream smartphone chipsets. We re talking
about the MSM7×30 family which is going to bring gigahertz
processing to future average smartphones.
The MSM7×30 family will pleasantly surprise you with multimedia
features like HD video recording and playback and �exceptional graphics
with dedicated 2D and 3D cores � while the chips will also be optimized
for offering you a great web experience.
The new chipset line will include the MSM7230 for HSPA+ smartphones and
the MSM7630 which comes with multi-mode support for HSPA+/EV-DO Rev. B
and SV-DO handsets. The new 7×30 family will offer 800MHz to 1GHz
CPUs based on the ARM v7 instruction set. The CPU used will be the same
Scorpion models found in current Snapdragon chipsets.
And here s what the MXM7×30 chipsets will be able to offer you:
720p high-definition video encode/decode at 30 frames per second
Integrated 2D and 3D graphics GPUs with support for OpenGL ES 2.0, and
OpenVG 1.1 industry standard APIs
Dedicated low-power audio subsystem supporting 5.1 surround
12-megapixel camera support
Integrated GPS for location-based services
Support for leading mobile operating systems, including Android,
Windows Mobile, Brew Mobile Platform and Symbian
Support for package-on-package memory for reduced board space,
optimized power consumption and more responsive performance.
The new chipset family is supported by the PM8058 power management
integrated circuit and the QTR8600 RF subsystem with integrated
Bluetooth and FM radio. It will also offer Wi-Fi support as it will
interface directly with the Qualcomm WCN1312 WLAN solution for 802.11 b/g/n.
Qualcomm hasn t announced what smartphones will use the new chipsets so
far but we ll be definitely looking forward to see manufacturers
announce new devices based on Qualcomm s new MSM7×30 chipset family.
