Flood of quad-core phones expected in Q4

Written by Peter Scott



Apple, Samsung and Qualcomm to slug it out


Competition in the superphone space is expected to heat up towards the end of the year and quite a few new phones are expected to sport quad-core processors.

According to Digitimes, Apple will lead the way with the new iPhone. Although we still don’t know what sort of chip to expect in the new iPhone, Digitimes claims it will sport a quad-core based on Samsung’s Exynos 4 of Galaxy S III fame, but we would take this with a grain of salt.

Qualcomm is also expected to introduce its first quad-core parts in the latter half of the year and if its MSM8960 is anything to go by, it will end up with one very fast chip indeed. Nvidia will not significantly refresh its Tegra lineup this year, while Texas Instruments and ST Ericsson are working on A15 dual-cores rather than A9 quads.

So far only a handful of quad-core phones have hit the market, namely the HTC One X, LG 4X HD and Samsung’s Galaxy SIII. ZTE and Huawei are planning to launch their first quad-cores later this year and of course there’s Apple, although we are still not entirely convinced that it will stick a quad-core chip in its new iPhone.
