Qualcomm have said, during a conference conversation with investors, that the company is having problems satisfying the huge demand for Snapdragon processors, which are used in a large part of the current mobile devices on the market. They’re expecting to have a shortage of the current generation of chips – the S4,which is manufactured by 28nm technology, until the end of the year and the company is currently looking into the possibility of offering their Fusion 2 series chips as an alternative to the S4. Because of Qualcomm’s problems with providing enough of highest-grade chips, some of the companies, which are currently relying on them will be forced to use other company’s solutions instead – for instance Nvidia’s Tegra chips or TI’s latest generation of OMAP processors.

Employees of another tech website have found an interesting comparison between a few devices’ benchmark results, which included those of an unknown Motorola smartphone. The results show, that the device is using a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, clocked at 1.5gHz, and its display has a 720p HD resolution. Such a discovery is rather surprising, considering the fact, that so far the American company has relied on TI for processors, even though they have also announced a couple of Intel Atom devices, which are expected to come later this year. So far there is no further information about the device, but rumors have it it’s going to be either the RAZR HD or the Atrix 3. The name, shown by the results, though, is Qinara, which is actually quite similar to the name of the Chinese version of the RAZR – Dinara, which points to the theory, that the “Q” stands for Qualcomm.

We are still waiting for the Galaxy S III from Samsung, but LG also intend to launch a new Android flagship to confront their biggest competitor.
We talk about the LG D1L, which will have a 4.7″ display with HD resolution of 1280×720 pixels and LTE support + 3G. The rumors said that the device will be powered by Snapdragon S4 SoC or the latest dual-core Krait CPU @ 1.5Ghz and Adreno 225 GPU. This dual-core processor will be equivalent in the power aspect of a quad-core processor, but it has a smaller physical dimensions. LG D1L is expected to be the first LG smartphone which comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.If you liked this post, Buy Me a Beer - click here
Rob Chandhok, the senior vice president of Qualcomm, has said in a recent interview, that we should be expecting ultrabooks, running Windows 8 and using Snapdragon quad-core chips, to be released later this year. The devices are going to compete with the MacBook Air and will be both lighter and thinner than it. With this statement, Rob has also confirmed that ARM processors are going to be found in other devices running Windows 8 as well as tablets.
The quad-core Snapdragon S4 chips, made using 28nm technology are expected to be powerful enough even for games and more demanding programs, but then again, their main advantage is power-efficiency. Sadly none of the programs, which are written for the older versions of Windows are going to work with this processor, but Microsoft have promised to rewrite their most popular tools and programs, such as their Office. Other manufacturers are also expected to reveal ARM-based Windows 8 laptops and if sales pick up, developers are bound to start writing more and more programs for them. B.

The competition between SoC makers is going to be very fierce this year and Qualcomm surely are well prepared for it with their new S4 line. Based on a Krait processor, the SoC is proving to be very powerful, according to the benchmarks. The results show, that a dual-core S4 processor, clocked at 1.4 gHz has managed to double the second highest score on Linpack and the results are pretty much the same in SunSpider and BrowserMark. As impressive as this may be, we can’t wait for the quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor to come out to really show us how powerful a mobile processor can be.
Meanwhile, a representative of Qualcomm has said in a recent interview, that we’re going to see a number of devices, using the dual-core MSM8960 chip at the Mobile World Congress, but sadly none using the quad-core processor – it will only be shown, featured in concept devices.

With the Mobile World Congress approaching, Qualcomm have decided to share a few new details about the Snapdragon S4 processors, which are going to be featured in quite a few mobile devices at the event. Perhaps the most important thing about the S4 is that they’re made by 28 nm technology, which makes them a lot more power-efficient. As it turns out they have a lot of other interesting features, such as support for a single 20MP camera or a dual-camera for shooting 3D pictures and videos. Another interesting camera feature is the stabilization, which doesn’t slow the camera down like on most devices. Last, but not least, the Snapdragon S4 supports all kinds of gestures, with which you can control the device by moving your body in front of the camera. B.

It’s no secret, that BlackBerry isn’t doing very well at the moment and that’s why the company is soon going to release an all-new version of BlackBerry OS and a new range of devices along with it. The first one is going to be called the London and, according to the pictures, which have leaked online, it’s going to be quite the looker with its thin body and large screen. Rumors have it, that the London is also going to be very powerful – it’s expected to have an OMAP5 or Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, clocked at 1.5gHz, which should be more than enough.
An interesting thing about the design is the lack of buttons on the front, which means, that the UI of BlackBerry OS10 is going to be quite different. B. A.If you liked this post, Buy Me a Beer - click here
