Snapdragon Dual-Core Processor Phones for Christmas

Sources have confirmed that Qualcomm will begin to ship their 1.5GHz  dual-core mobile processor during Q4. Others are boasting that with this news they will be able to hammer out phones to show off around the Christmas season. Being realistic it can be concluded that actual handset won't be vastly manufactured for the public until early 2011, but it is very exciting to see before hand what devices they are able to make. 

The dual-core chips will allow more innovation and possibilities to the mobile phones that are not at the present time accessible. One example of this is that the chips also support individual voltage scaling, meaning that one of the cores can be effectively turned off when not in use, saving the juice in your battery. Qualcomm claim a 30% battery life increase over single-core chips because of this technology. better multimedia performance. Equipped with a graphics processing unit with 3-D and 2-D acceleration engines for better rendering, the chips will also boast 1080p video encoding and decoding capabilities, and integrated low-power GPS. Support for 24-bit WXGA 1280 x 800 resolution displays is also provided, says Qualcomm.
