Qualcomm: Dual-Core Snapdragon Phones Coming In 2011.


If you just entered the smartphone scene, you might think the only worthwhile mobile processor options moving forward into 2011 are tweaked Hummingbird processors from Samsung and Nvidia’s dual-core Tegra 2 processor. However, Texas Instruments has some exciting stuff planned for later in the year. But for now, we’re focusing on Qualcomm and their upcoming dual-core processors, specifically dual-core Snapdragon processors + LTE support. Back in late 2009 and most of 2010, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor was “the” processor to beat. But as of late, the competition is getting fierce.

Speaking of competition, Cristiano Amon, Qualcomm’s Senior Vice President of Cellular Products had some fighting words poised and ready to fire back. According to Amon, Qualcomm’s processors have a couple of big advantages over the likes of Nvidia, Samsung, and others. For starters, dual-core Snapdragons feature an “asymmetrical clock” design which Amon says will result in faster speeds and less battery drain. Furthermore, he states that Qualcomms combining of processor and wireless modem further turn the advantage to Qualcomms side.

With plenty of talent on hand at CES and now this from Qualcomm, 2011 is certainly an interesting year already. Will Qualcomm’s boasting ring prove true?
