Mobile phone processors

What-are-mobile-phone-processorsIn the present world of mobile technology, with the usage of the same starting from recharging the SIM card to purchasing a brand new car, there is a question which naturally arises about a well-heard terminology in mobile technology. Processors! What are mobile phone processors? Why are they used? Which all mobile processors are good? What Kind of processor should I select? Well, the answer for these questions does not fit in this page, but surely I am trying to get an insight towards mobile processors.


What are mobile phone processors?

Just like the processors used in computer, mobile phone is also in need of the same with the innovation of surprising technologies. A mobile application processor can be defined as a System on a Chip (SoC) designed to support applications and programs that run on the platform of a mobile operating system. Without a fast processor it is almost impossible for a new gen smart phone to gain its functionality.  Previously, it was not much discussed while looking into the specification of a mobile phone, what type of processor is used. But now it has taken its own chair in the spec sheets of mobile phones.

What is the use of mobile phone processor?

Processors are often described as the brain of mobile phones because of the central role they play in the functioning of the device. A processor processes certain instructions in order to carry out certain functions that make our phone operate properly. Instead of single core processors, mobile phones use multi core processors now. Core is the number of processing units in a processor. A dual core processor will be having two processing units in a single processor. In addition to these, a mobile processor will be having a GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) to process multimedia which is widely used in mobile phones and most of the phones are mainly intended for multimedia usage.

What are the different types of processors available?

I am giving below a list of some popular mobile phone processors currently in market:

1)     Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 and 800

This is the widely used mobile phone processor in these times.

2)      Nvidia Tegra 4 and Tegra 4i



3)      Intel Atom Z2580 Clover Trail+



4)      Samsung Exynos 5 Octa (eight core)


5)      Apple A7

6)      Motorola X8

7)      HiSilicon K3V3


8)     MediaTek MT6592

9)      Intel Atom Z2420 Lexington



10)   Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 and 400



11)   Broadcom BCM21664



You can find a lot more processors available in the market other than the above listed ones. Dual core processors are going to be replaced by octa core or 8 core processors. Apple has already launched the much awaited 64-bit processor with Apple A7 processor with unimaginable processing capabilities. Samsung is also planning to introduce 64-bit processors with the launching of Galaxy S5.

What type of processor should I select?

This creates a lot of confusion about what type of processor specification shall I look for. But I think there is no need to worry about a quad-core processor currently your phone has as it will do the proper functioning in current scenario. This is what the top end dual core processors also do, as a matter of fact.
