    Highlights -


    210 -

    - Quad Core ARM Cortex A7 upto 1.1 Ghz
    - 4G - With Dual SIM support
    - 1080P recording
    - Camera upto 8MP
    - Fast Focus, HDR, Zero Shutter lag
    - Display resolution - upto 720P
    - Fast Charging 2.0 - Very interesting
    - NFC
    - Adreno 304 GPU that supports OpenGL ES3.0, OpenCL and DirectX
    - Wi-Fi 802.11N
    - Ram speed - 533 Mhz

    208 -

    - Dual Core ARM Cortex A7 upto 1.1 Ghz
    - 3G
    - 720P recording and playback
    - qHD display (540x960)
    - Camera - upto 5MP
    - Ram speed - 400 Mhz.

    What this allows QC to do is -

    - 4G enabled devices to a lower price point than never before.
    - Dual SIM support which is popular in our regions
    - Fast Charging which allows manufacturers to compromise on battery life


    All the other specs are at par with the competition. One can clearly envision an entry level series of phones that are 4-4.3 inch screens with qHD display and pack more than enough processing power for a light user.

    For a budget user who would like to have 4G speeds at a price point, the 210 does make a very good case for itself.

    Now it all depends how fast 4G networks open up in this part of the world!
