Qualcomm Corporation, famous for supplying central processing units to mobile devices of different kinds, has risen its reputation extremely high since the moment of the company’s foundation. The reputation of the firm appears to be flawless, as long as Qualcomm was chosen among many candidates to provide the CPU for the upcoming Windows phone – a gadget long waited for. The decision has been officially announced by the Qualcomm representatives on the 20th of June.
The exact model chosen to be integrated into the Windows 8 operated device is the famous Snapdragon 4S, apparently the fastest dual-core chip found on the shelves of the company. Reaching the core working frequency of 1.7 GHz each one, Snapdragon 4S really demonstrates wonderful efficiency. Another interesting thing about the processing units is the fact that they combine the CPU and the graphic processing units with the LTE radio functions – a rare thing among the processors for mobile devices. For the moment the processing units of this kind serve the lucky owners of HTC One S and the Samsung Galaxy S3. The award-winning smartphones prove the excellent quality of the Qualcomm processor, giving hope that the new Windows Phone appears to be a great successor for these flagship phones.
The silicon-based slim chip will appear in the first lineup of Windows Phones, yet the executives of the company have definitely said they give no warranty that Qualcomm remains the supplier of Snapdragon S4 chips for the next generations of the device.
