The Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 family is equipped with quad-core CPUs, offering premium multimedia and connectivity features to high-volume 3G handsets. Additionally, it features the powerful Adreno 305 GPU, 1080p capture and playback and up to a 13 megapixel camera.
"The expansion of our Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 family extends our leadership in performance and low power for the high-volume smartphones," explained Cristiano Amon, executive vice president and co-president of mobile and computing products, Qualcomm Technologies, in a statement. "This expanded roadmap provides our customers with a differentiated feature set upon which to build compelling smartphones for budget-conscious consumers."
The MSM8226 and MSM8626 processors are optimized to deliver visually stunning graphics and exceptionally long battery life to high-volume smartphones. These two chipset are also built on Qualcomm Technologies' previous quad-core offering, using the 28nm technology node. The two newest members to this roundup will also support multi-SIM capabilities with Dual SIM, Dual Standby and Dual SIM, Dual Active.
These processors are expected to be ready for customer sampling by the second quarter of 2013 for UMTS, CDMA and TD-SCDMA.
Further, the company will also be releasing Qualcomm Reference Design (QRD) versions, which offer device manufacturers with handset development resources as well as access to an ecosystem of hardware and software vendors, whose components and applications have been tested and validated for QRD-based devices.
In addition, QRD customers will also acquire everything they need to deliver differentiated smartphones to the mass market. TheQRD8226 and QRD8626, the QRD versions of these particular Qualcomm Snapdragon processors will also be available for sampling by the second quarter of 2013.

- SIM Management for Mobile Termination
To offer better rates on local mobile networks, Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSPs) have to optimize Call Termination costs and maximize SIM cards usage.
- SIM Management for M2M Platform Validation
The M2M solutions deployment is very complex and difficult to test and validate in the lab. Gateways and probes on-site deployment are subject to numerous constraints such as GSM 3G coverage, unexpected multi-operator roaming, international roaming, tariff and service restrictions.
- SIM Management for Mobile Testing
In order for a Mobile Network Operator to be successful, reduce churn and increase customer loyalty, the need to shift from testing network to perform a complete “end to end” QoS Testing has become obvious.
