in addition to the chips, the American manufacturer has confirmed that all the chips will come with support for Quick Charge 3.0 technology. The move is a clear attempt by Qualcomm to popularize fast charging feature, which henceforth should give more and more expensive intermediary devices and input.
More powerful among intermediaries announced yesterday, the 653 is a direct evolution of the 652. In direct comparison, the chip provides 10% higher performance and supports twice the number of RAM than its predecessor: 8 GB .

Like the 653, the Snapdragon 626 is a direct evolution of the 625, offering 10% more performance than its predecessor. Although it is below 653 in terms of performance, with the intermediate option of intermediaries, the chip also comes with the new modem X9 LTE and support Clear Sight technology.
Chip most basic of presented yesterday, the 427 is intended primarily for intermediaries that seem most basic stocky. Nevertheless, the SoC brings the same features of its siblings, with X9 LTE modem and supports Clear Sight.
The inclusions called enough attention, especially by noting that the 425, the previous version of the chip, had only the X6 LTE modem – ie three previous generations.
