    This year will see the beginning evolution of dual-core phones to quad-core phones, and there have been a slew of them announced already from several manufacturers, including LG, HTC and Samsung. There are even some new folks to the party. We will see quad-core devices from Huawei, ZTE and Fujitsu at some point. If you are excited by the prospect of all the new Android superphones that are coming soon, then here is a handy itemized list of the quad-core phones that have been announced so far:
    • LG Optimus 4X HD (June release) - Comes with a NVIDIA Tegra 3 - a large 4.7" True HD IPS screen display with a regular RGB matrix and 1280x720 pixel resolution - a 2150mAh battery
    • Huawei Ascend D quad (July release) - Their new series is called the "Diamond" series - Huawei includes its own ARM-based quad-core chipset, called the K3V2 running at 1.2-1.5GHz - 4.5" HD LCD display with 720x1280 pixels of resolution - 8.9mm slimness - an 8MP BSI camera, and a huge 2500mAh battery
    • HTC One X (April release) - quad-core Tegra 3 (dual-core in the AT&T and Sprint LTE versions - and maybe in a Verizon version because of supposed incompatibility issues with the LTE radios in the U.S.) - a 4.7" HD IPS LCD display - elegant polycarbonate unibody - a vastly improved camera module using HTC's new proprietary ImageChip - incredibly fast and allows you to shoot pictures while capturing 1080p video
    • ZTE Era (July release) - Android 4.0 ICS our of the box - NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip clocked at 1.3GHz - 1GB of RAM - 4.3-inch qHD display - 8MP camera with 1080p video capture
    • Fujitsu Arrows Ultra (Summer/Fall) - 4.6" HD display - LTE connectivity - 13.1MP camera with ultra high 25600 ISO sensitivity for better low-light pics - water and dust resistant - DLNA and HDMI-out capabilities for wireless and wired media streaming - Android 4.0 ICS and Tegra 3 (Hmmm... LTE and Tegra 3... wonder if they figured out something that HTC couldn't.)
    • Samsung Galaxy S III (June/July) - Custom Exynos 4412 quad-core chipset - oxidized aluminum chassis and ceramic metal coating - HD Super AMOLED Plus 4.7-4.8-Inch display utilizing a regular RGB matrix - truly buttonless front - advanced battery life optimizations - custom system-on-a-chip with the LTE radio embedded in the Exynos chipset
    That's an impressive list of devices. I am sure that many of us are mostly focused on the SGS3; however, some of these other devices look quite good as well. From the Huawei with its own in-house custom quad-core to the potentially amazing cameras on the HTC One X and the Fujitsu Arrows Ultra, we will have some interesting devices to choose from throughout this summer and beyond. Sound off which of these devices intrigue you the most.

    Exciting stuff, but let's prepare for the upcoming crapstorm of complaints on battery life and lack of apps that utilize all four cores lol. I will stick with my dual core outdated hunk-o-moto that I am more than satisfied with at the present time:p I have an upgrade collecting dust, but think I'll stand pat unless one of these phones blows us out of the water.

    Actually tegra 3 chips consume less because they have a 5th core for low intensity functions

    ^^ What he said. And I was under the impression that the OS is what controlled the use of the multi core chips, and not the app itself.

    I have yet to be impressed with any device with the Tegra 2. I really don't expect much of the Tegra 3 and from what I've seen of it already I'm not impressed.

    Its to bad that a company doesn't take the Apple approach, yes APPLE approach. Build 1 main phone, work most the bugs out of it, give it amazing hardware, nice slick design, and make it smooth. Yes i know the iPhone has bugs, but it's nothing compared to Motorola, or HTC devices when they launch. Releasing phones every time something new becomes available isn't helping them. For example the Droid X2, ooooo a Tegra 2 processor. Motorola says slap it in a phone and ship it out. they did, and it's ****. Another is Asus with the first prime.

    One of my friends asked me to jailbreak their iPhone 3G, i was honestly shocked at how smooth it was and when i pressed on anything. Everything opened right now, not in 2 seconds, now. I've owned an iPod touch and sold it a year ago, but it was shocking to see how smooth that device was compared to my Moto's running custom roms.

    Not an apple fan at all. All in on Android.
