The mobile industry took a long time to be introduced to dual-core processors. In 2011, smartphones and tablets like the Samsung Galaxy S II, Apple iphone 4 S, LG Optimus 2x and Apple ipad 2 shone with their stunning dual-core performance.
This was when chip manufacturers Qualcomm and Nvidia shared their vision of giving quadcore computing power to mobile devices. But this doesn’t mean dual-core was only a stepping stone for faster processors. As the first set of quad-core phones line up for launch this year, there should be a lot of action lined up in the dual-core segment too. The new processors are aimed at Pc-like performance while improving the mobile experience, especially with better battery life.
A faster web experience, quick multi-tasking, stereo 3D for videos, gaming and camera optics of up to 32MP are a few possibilities that quad-core can introduce to these mobile computing devices.
