Qualcomm has revealed what's in store for the Snapdragon platform, which powers HD2 and Google's Nexus One smartphone, among other things.
By the end of January, the 45nm 1.3GHz Snapdragon 8X50A will be available to manufacturers, and should be appearing in products by the end of 2010 - but where things get really exciting is the move to dual-core.
By the end of 2010, the Snapdragon 8X72 will be available, with two Scorpion cores clocked at 1.5GHz. Luis Pineda, SVP of product management for Qualcomm CDMA Technologies, says the 8X72 can be used in both smartphones and smartbook type devices and will be capable of providing 1080p resolution video output.
the only question remaining is whether battery technology can keep up with the ever-increasing power demands of smartphones (and smartphone users).
