Qualcomm’s upcoming quad-core version of their highly popular Snapdragon S4 processor is getting closer to mass release. For early adopters, Qualcomm has made the processor available via a dev tablet which they’re calling the “Snapdragon S4 Pro mobile development platform.” While it caries a hefty price of $1,299, just keep in mind that it is geared towards developers and not for the general consumer. The tablet will sport a 10.1 WXGA (1280×768) display, 2GB LPDDR2 RAM, 32GB of storage space and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Considering the current dual-core S4 processor can hold its own against current quad-cores, one can only imagine how powerful the quad-core S4 will be. The new S4 will also be accompanied with the Adreno 320 graphics engine which is said to be three to four times more powerful than the current Adreno 225 that’s in the dual-core S4. You can purchase this straight from BSQUARE, Qualcomm’s usual distributor for their dev kits.
