Qualcomm is working on a new chipset for affordable low-end Android smartphones. The chipset will specifically target low-end Android device running a light version of Android called Android Go.
What is Android Go?
Android Go is usually referred to as a light version of the Android Operating System. Each and every google app in the Android Go is light version so it basically reduces the size. Android Go is made for the smartphones having 1GB or 2GB RAM coupled with 8GB or 16GB Storage.
Android Go has light version pre-installed applications like Google Go, Gmail Go, Maps Go, Assistant Go, Youtube Go, Files Go, Gboard Go, etc…
Qualcomm is working on a chipset for Android Go smartphones called QM125. This chipset will be based on quad-core structure and company will probably use 4 Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.3GHz. It is reported to pack 650MHz GPU. The chipset will be made upon a 28nm process similar to Snapdragon 410 and Snapdragon 425.
Qualcomm is testing this chipset on Huawei device having 1GB or 2GB RAM and 8GB or 16GB internal storage. It will also support the 720p HD+ display. As the chipset is no carrying the Snapdragon word, We can expect the company to launch it as a separate lineup.
