Qualcomm announces new quad-core Snapdragon 400 with built-in LTE and WP8 support
Microsoft said that Windows Phone 8 was bringing "multi-core" support to the platform, but as yet, we haven't seen anything more than dual-core processors in Windows Phone hardware, while Android handsets are hitting the octa level (which of course is basically dual quad-cores). But, this is the first time Qualcomm has explicitly confirmed WP8 support for one of its chips.

Of course, the new Snapdragon 400 won't just be coming to Windows Phone devices, but Android as well, and the real star of the show is the built-in LTE that Qualcomm has put on the chip. The chip will support all sorts of wireless specs including 42Mbps HSPA+, LTE, and China's TD-SCDMA, as well as 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM, and NFC. 

The Snapdragon 400 will be a quad-core Cortex-A7 chip clocked at 1.2GHz per core. It is scheduled to hit the market late this year alongside a new 7 and 10" reference tablet design from Qualcomm. The 400 is of course the mid-low-end of the new Snapdragon line, designed for "high-volume smartphones and emerging markets".
