Qualcomm Technologies has just introduced its latest and first low-cost chipset that comes with 64-bit processing and 4G LTE connectivity – the Snapdragon 410.
In addition to 64-bit processing, the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 comes with an integrated 4G LTE World Mode, Adreno 306 GPU, 1080p video playback, and support for cameras of up to 13 megapixels.

The Snapdragon 410 processor is anticipated to begin sampling in the first half of 2014 and expected to be in commercial devices in the second half of 2014.
