The chipset offers display support up to 1080p (60fps). It comes with Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Quick Charge 3.0 and Cat. 7 LTE X8 modem support with download and upload speeds up to 300Mbps and 100Mbps, respectively.

While the display support is capped at 1,280x800pixels (60fps) and camera resolution up to 16-megapixels, it has max video recording support up to 1080p.

Using older Cat. 4 X6 modem, it can achieve maximum download and upload speeds of up to 150Mbps and 75Mbps respectively. The Snapdragon 425 chipset also gets support for Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Quick Charge 2.0.

Snapdragon Wear 2100: Dubbed as Snapdragon Wear, it is a brand new platform for wearables, which Qualcomm claims to bring significant improvements over the current Snapdragon 400. The chipset will be 30 percent smaller and offer up to 25 percent battery boost compared to the Snapdragon 400 SoC.

It packs a quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU with clock speed up to 1.2GHz, Adreno 304 GPU and support for display resolutions up to 640x480pixels (60Hz). The chipset will be available in Bluetooth/Wi-Fi only and the other one with 4G LTE cellular connectivity. It will also support GPS, NFC and Quick Charge 2.0.
