Broadcom Brings a Dual-Core Chip for Low End Android Phones

Android is starting to bring some big hardware innovations next year. Not only will we get Dual-Core chips for high-end smartphones, like the Tegra 2, Orion, and a dual core Snapdragon, but we'll also get cheap dual cores ARM11 for low-end phones from Broadcom.

This should greatly improve the performance of low-end Android phones, but also the battery life, as the dual core chips will run more efficiently, and will be cheaper than other chips in its class. The chip will run at 500 Mhz, support HDSPA at 7.2 Mbs downstream and 5 MP cameras.

"The smartphone continues to influence the cellular industry, with defining features like multi-touch screens and the ability to run applications now enriching lower cost handsets. We've maximized the functionality of our new Android-processing baseband platform to enable our partners to deliver the most popular features in more affordable designs," said Scott Bibaud, EVP, Broadcom's Mobile Platforms Group, in a prepared statement.
