40 million quad-core smartphones were sold last year

Last year, high-end smartphone sales rose from 150 million phones to 250 million, although Berg believes that future growth in smartphone sales will come from increases in the low to mid-range category. The researcher says that by 2017, nearly all of the 1.5 billion smartphones that will be sold that year, will be equipped with at least a dual-core processor and the majority will be powered by a quad-core processor.
It seems like yesterday when the first Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz processor was showing up in models like the Nexus One. We blinked our eyes and quickly, dual-core models like the Motorola ATRIX were being launched. And then came the quad-core powered devices. It all started with the LG Optimus 4X HD, powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 3. And now we have 40 million quad-core devices getting shipped in 2012.

And most lagged due to subpar software/hardware optimization. I think this year it'll improve.

Hopefully the iPhone 7 will have finally caught up and have quad-core by 2017. *crosses fingers*
