We’re still waiting for Qualcomm to unleash its powerful new Snapdragon 820, but in the meantime the company has a few other processors to show off. The California firm quietly announced new Snapdragon 212 and Snapdragon 412 chips on Monday.

The Snapdragon 412 is the successor to the mid-range 64-bit Snapdragon 410. It offers faster memory, an improved Adreno 306 GPU and X5 LTE. It also supports up to 13.5-megapixel cameras, Full HD video recording and viewing, and Quick Charge 1.0 or 2.0.

Meanwhile, the Snapdragon 212 is a successor to the 210, which mostly powers entry-level phones. It offers a similar experience to the Snapdragon 412, but without a 64-bit setup, and a lesser Adreno 304 GPU. It supports up to 8-megapixel camera sensors. No word yet on when we’ll see the first devices with these new chips.
