It seems our new line of phones might start being sold with stickers like this on it. Yesterday, Qualcomm unveiled their next generation of processors for mobile devices. These new processors are said to improve performance by 150% and crash the power consumption down a whooping 65% over current processors. The speed of these new chips is up to 2.5 GHz per core, with the choice of single, dual, and quad core being available.
Keep in mind, these new processors are more likely made for tablets like the Xoom and the Tab 10.1. Samples for the dual-core MSM8960 will be available in second quarter this year, while single-core MSM8930 and quad-core APQ8063 versions are coming early 2012. This means you will not see them powering any tablets for quite some time, but the good news is Nvidia might have all this out before Qualcomm does, we'll just have to wait and see.
