It supports 3D gaming, fast web browsing, multi-SIM, up to a 13.5 megapixel camera and 1080p video capture and playback. It supports TD-SCDMA, DC-HSPA+, 1 x Advanced and CDMA.

Marketing VP for Qualcomm Mobile & Computing, Tim McDonough, said devices running the new chips should be available later this year.
