Qualcomm and their Snapdragon processors are in more Android devices than we can count and they aren't wasting anytime now that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is out in the wild. We've seen development devices from them in the past like the 1.5 GHz MDP phone (Mobile Development Platform) and now they are teasing their new Snapdragon MSM8960 that will be known as the Snapdragon S4 on an Ice Cream Sandwich powered tablet.

This developer platform device is rocking four cameras, a fingerprint scanner and all sorts of crazy ideas all packed into one was first shown off running Gingerbread but now Qualcomm has shared a few photos of this awesome device running the absolute latest -- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. With more than a few cameras on the front and a huge 13 megapixel camera on the rear Qualcomm looks to be testing anything and everything.

Almost every HTC device runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and with fast improvements to the platform from Qualcomm you can expect HTC to be working just as hard to bring updates across all of their capable devices. The details are pretty thin here but this Qualcomm S4 chipset should be here inside of 2012 and we'll probably see it on display at CES come this January. Hopefully they'll release a video shortly but in the meantime enjoy a few photos thanks to Qualcomm.
