Snapdragon 200 is the entry level and budget oriented CPU which is a quad-core ARM Cortex A5 clocked at 1.4GHz per core and an Adreno 203 GPU, supporting HD video playback, dual SIM card capability and cameras of up to 8 Megapixels.

The Snapdragon 400 offers more performance and can be used in both smartphones and tablets. The CPU will be in 2 flavors: dual core and quad core iterations and will be based on the Adreno 305 GPU and offering a multitude of connectivity options and better battery life. Some of the other features of the CPU are full HD 1080p video capture and playback and support for Miracast functionality, along with support for up to 13.5 megapixel cameras.

These processors will fill the gap left by the launch of company’s Snapdragon 600 and 800, which were released earlier in January. These new mobile processors  were revealed just after nVidia introduced the Tegra 4i and they represent the latest battle in the war  for supremacy between the two companies.
