Qualcomm announced today that it is expanding its entry-level offering by adding six new processors to the Snapdragon 200 class. These are dualcore and quadcore processors that have been manufactured on the 28 nanometer process. They will have support for HSPA+ up to 21MBps and TD-SCDMA. Graphics punch will be provided by Adreno 302 GPU. The best thing about these new chips is that they will support the Windows Phone platform. What this means is that manufacturers like Nokia and Huawei will now be able to create relatively low cost Windows Phone devices for the market that don’t compromise on core performance.

These new processors will be able to support a rear facing camera of up to 8 megapixels and a 5 megapixel front facing camera. There will also be support for latest Firefox and Android OS as well as for Qualcomm Quick Charge 1.0 and IZat Location functionality. The company believes that it will be able to make these processors available to manufacturers in late 2013. Now its only a matter of time before we start hearing rumors of devices that are going to be based on these new chips.
