As reported earlier, Qualcomm’s latest mobile development platform (MDP), the Snapdragon S4 Pro Dev is now available. Powering this device is their new APQ8064 chipset based on a quad core Snapdragon S4. Given the strong numbers posted by dual core S4 chips against quad core chipsets from other manufacturers, it should be no surprise that the quad core S4 just blows them away.
Qualcomm Technologies announced the Snapdragon 802 chip targeted at Smart TVs last month during CES 2014. Just over a month later, citing weak demand, the company has announced it is killing off the chip.
While many people are waiting anxiously for the release of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor intended to power top-end devices, the company itself is still working on hardware targeting other market segments. Today they announced a new addition to the Snapdragon 400 line of processors, the 8926, a quad-core chip with integrated multi-mode 3G/4g LTE capabilities.
LG is certainly gearing up for something big on the way. After hearing wind of a flagship device featuring quad-core power on the way, LG is now doing its very best to generate hype and tease the tech world by releasing a teaser site.
