  1. This chipset is perfect upgrade for entry level handset of 7k and above like present day Redmi 4. it should deliver best ever battery life for 720p screen handsets….easily more than 10 hours screen on time.

  2. Release of SD 435 was not required at all. Directly SD 450 should have been released…
