Nokia Windows Phone 8 devices to come with ST-Ericsson chip, 12 models planned for 2012
The ST-Ericsson U8500 is a dual-core chip based on Cortex-A9 with support for clock speeds of up to 1.2GHz for each core and similar in terms of performance to the latest of Snapdragons out there with its 12 hours of continuous full HD playback on a single charge. In addition, the chip comes with integrated baseband radio of the 21Mbps HSPA+ kind.
The Finns have 12 models planned for 2012 and at least some of them are to feature ST-Ericsson’s chips, according to Bozotti. Currently, the Samsung Infuse 4G and the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G are the latest handsets flaunting ST-Ericsson’s silicon.
