Think the Snapdragon Processor is Good? Just Wait Until You See the Dual-core Models

Earlier this week I wrote:

What to Expect in 2011 Android Phones? Dual-core Processors, 8 Megapixel Cameras, & 1080p Video Recording

Qualcomm Reveals Next-Gen Snapdragon MSM8960: 28nm, dual-core, 5x Performance Improvement

Yes, dual-core mobile goodness is definitely on their way. The current generation 1GHz single core Snapdragon processors powering Android phones like the Nexus One will have to move aside for the new models. Qualcomm says that the new dual-core processors will use much less power than what we have now. So, we may even see better battery life in new phones in 2011.
