Qualcomm shows off mobile processor roadmap Qualcomm has shown off their latest mobile processor roadmap, and it appears your phones are going to get a lot more powerful, and soon.
Snapdragon processors, seen in a majority of today's Android phones will soon see core speeds of 2.5GHz, 67 percent faster than the current leader in the market, the dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon seen in the upcoming Sensation XE.

The "S4" chip, slated for launch in devices in February, will not only have quad-core at 2.5Ghz, but Adreno Graphics, 3D, 1080p HD, and 3G/LTE multimode as standard.

CEO Paul Jacobs says it is not all about speed however (via Lint):

Its not about how many cores or how many gigabytes, its how well you can optimise the system.


Check the rest of the lineup in the picture below:

I like the sound of the next-gen ones...a quadcore 2.5GHZ chip in a phone sounds really nice. The only confusing part is the GPU...usually GPUs have lots of tiny pipelines...telling the core count doesn't really tell us anything if we don't know what kind of core it is.
