Product Brief

Improved performance

A new 64-bit CPU architecture delivers a massive boost in CPU performance when compared to our previous generation.

Dual ISPs for Dual Cameras

The Qualcomm 215 is equipped with dual ISP for dual camera optical zoom and depth capture (with software and support from our 3rd party ecosystem) and can capture full HD 1080p video.

Improved power consumption

Powerful performance requires stronger power efficiency. For the first time in the Qualcomm 2 series, Qualcomm 215 features a Qualcomm® Hexagon™ DSP which delivers low power audio and sensor processing.
