All three represented the chip got a new modem X9 LTE, as well as support for dual cameras and fast charging technology Quick Charge 3.0. X9 LTE modem supports Cat. 7 with the data download speed of 300 Mbit / s, Cat. 13 at a rate of return of up to 150 Mbit / s, LTE Advanced Carrier Aggregation with 2×20 MHz to download and return, 64-QAM for the return, the higher the quality of communication and VoLTE with Enhanced Voice Services technology.

This is achieved by increasing the maximum clock frequency up to 1.95 GHz (versus 1.8 GHz Snapdragon 652), support for up to 8GB of memory, a more powerful graphics processor and other improvements in the architecture.
the Snapdragon 626 (MSM8953 Pro) also 10% more powerful than its predecessor in the face of the Snapdragon 625. The maximum frequency of its cores is 2.2 GHz. This processor supports TruSignal technology that allows to improve signal reception quality in congested areas.
the Snapdragon 427 (MSM8920) less than the others differs from the previous version. In it improved the performance of the CPU and GPU, but exact figures are not named. Maximum operating frequency remains the same as in the Snapdragon 425, – 1.4 GHz. Among the notable improvements worth noting a new modem X9 LTE and support TruSignal technology.
