Qualcomm could unveil the Snapdragon 820 at press event on August 11th

Posted by wicked August - 5 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off


After riding high on the success of its Snapdragon 800, 801 and 805 processors, Qualcomm hit some speed bumps in 2015 with its much maligned 810 chip. Rumours began that the Snapdragon 810 had issues with overheating and thermal throttling, that weren’t helped when Samsung decided to use its own Exynos processor in the Galaxy S6. Issues with overheating still linger to some extent, despite Qualcomm developing a version 2.1 of the 810 processor that has most recently been seen powering the OnePlus 2. Having already sent out batches of samples of its next flagship processor, the Snapdragon 820, to handset manufacturers such as HTC and Sony, it seems that Qualcomm could make a public announcement next week.

According to a report out of China, Qualcomm plans to announce the Snapdragon 820 at a press conference it is holding on August 11th in Los Angeles, with press invites having already been sent out.

Besides being rumoured to use a Quad-core configuration, the Snapdragon 820 is believed to be using ‘Kryo‘ custom cores running @3.0GHz. From the cores’ moniker, one gets the impression that cooling played a major part in its development. The Snapdragon 820 is also believed to include an Adreno 530 GPU @ 530MHz with support for LPDDDR4 RAM, 4K video decoding @60fps, 4K video encoding @30fps and LTE CAT 10. The Snapdragon 820 is thought to be being manufactured using Samsung’s 14nm manufacturing process, aiding Qualcomm in ensuring the chip runs both cooler and more efficiently than its predecessor. Finally, it’s believed that Xiaomi’s Mi5 flagship will be the first handset to feature the Snapdragon 820 processor.

Mobile Gaming: Dual- Vs. Quad-Core Processors

Posted by wicked March - 13 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

When it comes to mobile processors, you have options – many options, in fact. If you’re unfamiliar with your choices, or simply don’t know what you need, it can be a bit overwhelming.

Further complicating the decision-making process is the fact that you can opt for both dual core and quad core processors. The assumption is that the quad core processor will always be the better bet, but that isn’t necessarily the case. And this is because a dual core processor can be had with a faster “clocking” speed than a quad-core counterpart; additionally, many programs and applications aren’t designed to make use of multiple cores, so that extra processing power isn’t being put to use.

Leaked pictures of an aborted Motorola Xoom 3 project appear online

Posted by wicked June - 3 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off


While Motorola’s tablets have had some success, they didn’t exactly live up to the hype that they were given before release. They didn’t introduce anything truly groundbreaking, and they were pretty much run-of-the-mill devices with semi-sleek designs.

Maybe that’s the reason the Xoom 3 was never released.

You heard me right, the Xoom 3.

Never heard of it? That’s because the project was thrown away in its infancy — but there seems to be some pictures of the unreleased tablet. We have them for you after the break, as well as a few of the rumored specs.

-Kevlar rear casing (just like the most recent Droid devices)
-Verizon 4G LTE (and most likely a WiFi version as well)
-Camera with LED flash
-Quad-core processor (unknown specs
-10-inch display, 7.6 mm thin

8-core smartphones not expected to be big sellers in 2014

Posted by wicked March - 15 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off


Even though smartphones equipped with 8-core processors like the Samsung Galaxy S 5 will be available in 2014, analysts and industry sources don’t think they will be big sellers this year. Two factors seem to be weighing on the prognosticators.

First, manufacturers are still focused on quad-core models and supplying these for entry-level and mid-level devices. This will be especially true for white-box handset vendors in China. In many cases, although handset manufacturers have indicated they will support 8-core processors, the design process is not completed to have these deployed. While that work is still in progress, chip manufacturers like MediaTek are maintaining a significant price gap between 8-core and quad-core chips, which eases the pressure to accelerate adoption.

Second, there is a concern that mature markets have become saturated at the high-end and growth is moving down the spectrum. Sources point to concerns that the Galaxy S 5 will not sell as briskly as Samsung is hoping.

The combination of manufacturing limitations and expected softening demand for 8-core smartphones points to 2015 being the year when growth really starts to accelerate.

Intel announces 2 new mobile processors at MWC 2014

Posted by wicked February - 25 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

Intel at MWC - Barcelona, Spain

While much of the focus at MWC 2014 is on smartphone and tablet manufacturers and where they are heading with their devices, other companies are present to help show how they want to power those new devices. Intel was on hand today to announce two new Atom processors, the Merrifield and the Moorefield.

The 64-bit Atom Z3480, formerly known by the codename Merrifield, is a dual-core chip running at 2.13GHz. Using Intel’s 22nm Silvermont architecture, the processor includes an Intel XMM 7160 LTE chip and a PowerVR Series 6 graphics core. Intel says Z3480 equipped devices should start shipping during the second quarter.

Later in the year the Moorefield code-name chip will be available bringing Intels 64-bit Atom processors to a quad-core architecture at an announced speed of 2.3GHz. Like the Merrifield, the Moorefield processor will support LTE and come with an enhanced gpu.

Intel also took the opportunity to show off their XMM 7260 LTE chips which they claim can support simultaneous 300Mbps down and 50Mbps up speeds. All of the chips Intel is releasing promise gains not only in speed, but in better power management as well.

Along with the new chips, Intel announced a partnership with McAfee to help provide protection against malware on Android devices. The Intel Device Protection Technology (Intel DPT) will give enterprise customers the capability of segregating corporate and personal data on Intel-based Android devices.

To help with the push into the consumer market for smartphones and tablets, Intel has established partnerships with Lenovo, ASUS, Dell and Foxconn. Intel may not be the first name buyers think of when looking for a smartphone, but they are definitely making a big push into the market.

MediaTek’s new Everyday Genius motto announced along with new quad-core 64-bit chipset

Posted by wicked February - 23 - 2014 - Sunday Comments Off


MediaTek has announced a new motto, Everyday Genius, to serve as their new branding motif. To help highlight this new marketing direction, MediaTek took the opportunity during MWC 2014 to announce a new quad-core chipset aimed at devices in the “super-mid market” as they describe it. The MT6732 will be a 64-bit processor that will compete with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 64-bit chipset.

The MT6732 will come equipped with four ARM Cortex-A53 cores, a 16-core Mali-T760 graphics chip, a multi-mode 4G LTE modem chip, and an imaging chip. Benchmark testing shows the new A53 cores are a substantial improvement over A7 cores they succeed while cutting down on power consumption. The Mali T760 gpu is 400% more energy efficient than the old T604 chip.

The new chip supports 1080p video playback and recording, support for picture-in-picture, video-in-video, and something called “Video Face Beautifier.” Like other MediaTek chips, the MT6732 comes equipped with the company’s ClearMotion and MiraVision algorithms.

The chips are not projected to be available before the end of the year. The capabilities of the new chip does help us identify where the mid-tier market is headed. MediaTek’s full press release is below, after the company’s video announcing the new Everyday Genius motto. Be sure to check back for more MWC 2014 coverage from TalkAndroid.

Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus takes the giant to a new quad-core level

Posted by wicked February - 12 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

It seems to be a period of putting new wine in old wine skins for Samsung, especially for its low- to mid- range line. The latest to get an overhaul is one of the manufacturer’s largest smartphones, the Galaxy Mega 5.8.

Granted, it’s not exactly the largest, being eclipsed by its 6.3-inch sibling that we reviewed here. It’s also just 0.1-inch away from from the Galaxy Note 3 anyway. Still, with specs like a 5.8-inch 540×960 screen, a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, a strange 1.5 GB RAM, and a large 2600 mAh battery, the smaller Galaxy Mega straddles the fine line between phablet and small but low-end tablet.

The Galaxy Mega Plus attempts to bring the giant phablet to the current age, but only barely. In this rehash, Samsung replaces the processor with a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor. Rather unfortunately, it seems that the rest of the specs are all the same. You still have the 5.8-inch screen with the rather low 540×960 resolution and TFT technology, the same 8 megapixel rear camera and 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera, and the same battery capacity. No word on RAM but, considering the rest of the specs, we wouldn’t be surprised if it remained the same. No word on Android version either but it wouldn’t be too much of a loss if it kept the same Android 4.2 as the original.

One other major change in the Galaxy Mega Plus is the addition of dual SIM support, which is perfect for the Chinese market where the smartphone is currently available. No word on whether Samsung has any plans on making it available outside, but there are probably very few who will hold their breath for it.

Huawei Ascend P6S silently arrives sporting only a quad-core CPU

Posted by wicked January - 20 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

This is one case where expectation and reality do not meet eye to eye. Huawei has, without fuss or fanfare, made the Ascend P6S available on its online store, and it is not the interesting smartphone that some have been hoping for.


The truth of the matter is that the Huawei Ascend P6S is pretty much the Ascend P6 with just some very few changes. Perhaps the most significant change is that of the processor. While the Huawei P6 has a 1.5 GHz quad-core chip, the Ascend P6S has 1.6 GHz quad-core processor. That is in stark contrast to the octa-core CPU that rumors have put inside the smartphone. The actual manufacturer and model is still unknown but it could very well be the HiSilicon Kirin910 leaked a while back, considering the device matches the quad-core Mali 450 GPU as well.

In all other aspects, the Ascend P6S is similar to its predecessor. There is the same 4.7-inch 720p display, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, 8 megapixel rear camera, and 5 megapixel front-facing camera. It is even similar down to the same Android 4.2 version that runs out of the box. In other words, depending on how the new CPU and GPU performs, the Ascend P6S is practically a very small upgrade. It does have dual SIM support, so that might be something worth considering for those interested in buying this device. You can read up on our Ascend P6 review here and the results might still be the same.

The Ascend P6S is, however, seemingly only available, in black and white color options, from Vmall, Huawei’s online store. The smartphone is priced at 2,688 CNY, around $444, but is 300 CNY or $50 off until January 21.
