Qualcomm dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon due out by the end of 2010
Over the past year, we’ve seen  a lot of high end handsets that are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset. With so many memorable devices like the Toshiba TG01, HTC HD2, and HTC Nexus One, Snapdragon’s presence in each of these smartphones showcases its pure raw power. Qualcomm isn’t sitting back as manufacturers use their chipset to power what’s under the hood of handsets, instead they are already aggressively at work in getting out the next version of the Snapdragon – two actually. The first one will be sampled by manufacturers later in the month – it’s the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8X50A which is a 45nm version of the current chip; but clocked in at 1.3GHz. Outdoing itself already, the juicer second is the dual-core Snapdragon 8X72 with twin 1.5GHz Scorpion cores – which is speculated to be out before the year is over. According to Luis Pindea, SVP of product management, it will be more than adequate for powering smartphones and smartbooks – all the while capable of 1080p high definition.

Now that's impressive. I've always been an Intel fan but boy oh boy do they have their work ( as far as mobile ) cut out for them. ;)

the processor will improve battery life, not lower it.

Nice to hear something is coming to market, but this chipset is old news. Qualcomm announced availability months ago.

Dual core Snapdragon (Cortex A8) or Cortex A9. I will go with Cortex A9 (Tegra 2).
