General info

1.Has integrated graphics
Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 MSM8939
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
2.Supports 64-bit
Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 MSM8939 (ARM Cortex-A53)
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
4.GPU clock speed

500MHz (Qualcomm Adreno 405)

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
5.DirectX version

11.2 (Qualcomm Adreno 405)

DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
6.OpenGL ES version

3.1 (Qualcomm Adreno 405)

OpenGL ES is used for games on mobile devices such as smartphones. Newer versions support better graphics.


1.CPU speed

8 x 1.5GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.


This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
3.Supports ECC memory
Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 MSM8939
Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.


1.Has integrated LTE
Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 MSM8939
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
2.Has dynamic frequency scaling
Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 MSM8939 (ARM Cortex-A53)
Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
3.Has NX bit
Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 MSM8939 (ARM Cortex-A53)
NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
NEON provides acceleration for media processing, such as listening to MP3s.
5.Has AES
Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 MSM8939 (ARM Cortex-A53)
AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
6.Has TrustZone
Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 MSM8939 (ARM Cortex-A53)
A technology integrated into the processor to secure the device for use with features such as mobile payments and streaming video using digital rights management (DRM).


1.pixel rate

4.8 GPixel/s (Qualcomm Adreno 405)

The number of pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
