Hello Mi Fans,
Semiconductor manufacturer Qualcomm Technologies has announced its latest smartphone platform called the Qualcomm 205 Mobile Platform. The 205 Platform will be focussing on Qualcomm’s entry level SoCs for emerging markets such as India, Latin America, South East Asia and so on. The idea behind the 205 Mobile Platform is to get 4G and VoLTE support to devices in the sub-$50 price tag (approx Rs 3000). Phones based on this platform will be seen in Q2 2017.

By launching the Qualcomm 205 Mobile Platform, the San Diego-based company is hoping to address the needs of wireless carriers in emerging markets that are currently in the process of transitioning their users from 2G and 3G networks to 4G solutions. The Qualcomm 205 Mobile Platform brings 4G LTE to more people in more places. A combination of features bring performance without compromising battery life. The lithography of these chipsets have not been detailed, but going for the low-power and low-cost business model, they should be able to provide ample battery life in feature phones; 45 days of standby time and 20 hours of talk time.


According to research from IDC, feature phones remain in high demand in many countries, with 56 percent of users opting for one over a smartphone in India during 2016, and 49 percent in Vietnam. However, India’s 4G capable phone shipments are expected to accelerate from 55 percent this year to 90 percent in 2020, as consumers continue to be driven towards social media, consuming news online, making video calls, and streaming video. With the 205 SoC, Qualcomm is looking to enable local manufacturers to build these 4G devices at cost effective price points.
