If you’ve been secretly planning to change your smartphone, you may want to wait until February as the new line of quad-core Android superphones are about to take centerstage. Although most were nowhere to be found at CES 2012, rumor has it that they will be making their launch at the Mobile World Conference to be held in Barcelona.
AndroidAuthority has previously talked about upcoming quad-core smartphones but now, we give you a full list (so far) of the devices that are powered by this mega-experience.
Although silent, HTC has been rumored to have the first ever Android quad-core phone to reach US shores. With the leaked information about the features of the HTC Edge, you get the following features:
As the successor of the highly successful Samsung Galaxy S2, the Galaxy S3 is probably one of the most anticipated quad-core smartphones. Rumors about its features include:
Many are also hoping that this would include Android’s latest OS, the Ice Cream Sandwich.
Although we got word last year that Meizu MX will be launching their quad-core model, we’re still waiting for it. Here are the features of the quad-core smartphone:
If you’re wondering what you can expect from a quad-core smartphone, you should read our previous post.
Now you’re all set for February, when the quad-core phones start rolling in! Which one will you be getting?

Then what happened to the rumored 2.5 ghz quad core htc zeta ?!!
- 1.5 GHz quad-core MSM 8906 processor
- Tegra 3
Nice hahaha, htc has 2 chipsets? you can swith between or they work simultaneously?
We’re talking here about a STUNNING amount of processor power – probably not far from where supercomputers were around 20 years ago (a pure guess on my part). I notice that there have been nearly a million downloads of the LINPACK processor benchmarking app in the Android market – and that this app has been updated to cater for multi-core processors. A good case can be made that this benchmark no longer best represents the way computers are used, but it is a benchmark that goes back a long time – and I for one would be interested to know the year in which the fastest supercomputer matched a quad-core telephone!
To answer my own question, it looks as though we’re still over 25 years behind the fastest supercomputers. In 1985, the Cray 2 could do 1e9 flops (http://compnetworking.about.com/library/weekly/aa051902b.htm), and in a web page I found, the current fastest Android phone, the Galaxy Nexus, registered 1e8 flops (http://www.greenecomputing.com/apps/linpack/linpack-by-device/).
Disappointing – but still impressive for a mobile phone!
DO WANT THE GALAXY S3 !!!!!
