apple started it all and now they are not leading anymore hahaha samsung one of the competitor of apple is making their processor.. goodluck!! hahaha
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2012Samsung hardware is the best and apple also knows It's the Android that lags...
Apple: "No one needs a quad core processor, it's a waste of time and our OS is so good it doesn't need it."
Samsung: "We're on course to ship 19 million S3 phones this year.
Apple: "Our next phone will be quad core........"
So we're effectively going to be getting a Galaxy S3 in an iPhone case running IOS6?
(This is a joke by the way for those who lack a sense of humour!)
God, just imagine the cost of an iPhone that's specced like a Galaxy S3... also, are Apple now going to sue Samsung for having quad core phones?
rockon2012, 05 Jul 2012i would like a15 plus more Ram and SSD space, and also 802.11ac support than NFC,LTE or 3D. Did you mean smartphone or ultra books? because smarphone don't need SSD :)
im using both iphone and android. even my iphone4 with only 512mb ram can run smooth. so i think iphone with quadcore will be more more smoother than any other android quadcore. android is very eating memory so much
I am wondering if those who told us about Iphone lag had posesed an Ios device.
don't wait for the iphone 5 the design will change and some tech specs,the iphone 5s will be a real change(tech specs,not the design).The real change will be at iphone 6.
i really doubt that samsung will make chipsets for apple after all that suing...
i wonder how this will work on the AT/T network as well as the other big ones in the US?
i read that the galaxy 3 from samsung released an international quad core version but the US AT/T version is only dual core cause the quad core doesnt work on AT/T's network. instead they gave their phone double the memory.
does anyone know if its true?
also, how will this quad core for apple work on AT/T?
Qualcomm SoC have DirectX on Windows Phone 8. Win for Qualcomm with DirectX games.
"Expect these impressive Snapdragons to also hit the shelves around Q4 of this year." - Since when any of these embedded processor hit the stores on their own? It would have been better to simply write , "Expect these impressive Snapdragons become available for mobile hardware consumption around Q4, this year."
Tim, 06 Jul 2012I agree. iOS is "smooth". But it is definately not fast. The smoothness comes from s... moreIt's either smooth and slow, or fast but jittery..
you can't have both in the iPhone.. So they chose the former..
You want both? Put in extra cores, and you'll be fast and smooth like android/WP..
I would rather see more efficient and relevant software than having faster chips disguising inefficient software full of bloatware.
z, 06 Jul 2012apple cant live without samsung's hardware. theres a lot of hard ware manufacturers out there...
