Qualcomm has great plans outlined for its next generation of processors, where the upcoming 28nm chip is touted to deliver up to 5 times the performance of one of the company’s original Snapdragon chips. Not only that, it will also sip around 75% less juice compared to today’s chips – that translates to better performance and a much improved battery life. If you are the type who needs to put a name to a chip, then it is called the Qualcomm MSM8960 that features a dual core processor, built-in 3G and 4G mobile broadband connectivity, GPS navigation support, Bluetooth and FM radio. Not only that, its integrated graphics core will feature four times the performance of what today’s chips are able to deliver. We won’t see them hit the market anytime soon though – not until next year at least.
