Designed for high-end smartphones, the new dual-CPU Snapdragon chipsets can run at up to 1.2GHz. They feature support for WXGA (1280 x 800) displays, GPU with 3D/2D acceleration engines, 1080p video, built-in low power GPS, and dedicated low power audio engine.
The Qualcomm MSM8260 will power HSPA+ smartphones, while the MSM8660 is made for multi-mode HSPA+/CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Rev. B handsets.
Qualcomm didn’t say when exactly handsets based on its new dual-core chipsets will be available, but the company’s partners are probably already working on something. Who knows, maybe Nokia’s first Snapdragon smartphone will use the MSM8260 or the MSM8660.
