Snapdragon 427 Processor

Creating a new entry point for mid-tier processors, the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 427 processor with an X9 LTE modem is the first 400-series processor with Qualcomm® TruSignal™ antenna boost. It also features 802.11ac Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO, a 64-bit CPU with Cortex A53 and a 16MP dual ISP. The Snapdragon 427 processor is making cutting-edge experiences more accessible with advanced computing, smooth graphics and remarkable camera quality.

More powerful processing.

A 64-bit CPU with Cortex A53 is engineered to provide power efficient computing, while a dedicated Qualcomm® Hexagon™ DSP is designed to deliver enhanced images, extended audio, always-on sensors, and support for computer vision—all with improved efficiency.

Capture every pixel.

The 16MP dual ISP is designed to deliver vibrant, ultra-sharp photos and advanced features like phase-detection autofocus, and provides dual camera support.

Faster speeds for greater needs.

An X9 LTE modem is designed to support download speeds of up to 300 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 150 Mbps, with 2x20 MHz carrier aggregation in both uplink and downlink—creating plenty of room for high resolution photos and videos.
