Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 MSM8937 was announced globally in 2016 as a low-end system on chip designed mainly for devices which were operating on Android OS. Like I said, the chip was introduced in 2016 and went on to power lower mid-range smartphones these past few years.
It was reported to be built on the newer and advanced 64-bit architecture. Apart from that, the chip consists of eight strong ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocking up to 1.4 GHz, providing premium processing performance for budget friendly devices. Compared to the 410 and 415, the 430 was a certified beast in the lower segment as at the time of launch and did excellently well.
