ASUS will be unveiling and announcing a new Nexus 7 tablet at this years Google I/O event in May. Last year they debuted the exciting $199 Nexus 7 with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and this year we're hearing a next-gen Nexus 7 is coming with an upgraded 1080p HD display, and along with it will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 line of processors has proven to be incredibly popular, so it isn't much of a surprise that the company has added two new CPUs to the Snapdragon S4 family. Announced today, the MSM8226 and the MSM8626 are bound for China, and offer a number of features that we have a feeling manufacturers will pay attention to. Those manufacturers will have a little bit of a wait ahead of them, though, as these new processors aren't scheduled to launch until Q2 2013.
LG are reaching towards the high end with their latest smartphone. That being their new flagship LG Optimus G powerhouse.

Telling us to prepare to “live without boundaries.” Press invites have just started making the rounds for an upcoming LG and Qualcomm event in the US later on September 19th where we'll surely be seeing the new and impressive LG Optimus G smartphone.
LG Optimus G smartphone. We now can confirm that Qualcomm's extremely fast and efficient new quad-core will be powering the device.
Earlier today we gave you a bit of information on Qualcomm's new Snapdragon S4 Pro developer tablet, but now we're back with more info thanks to a number of benchmark tests SlashGear has performed. As expected, the Snapdragon S4 Pro delivered some really impressive results in the tests, thanks to its quad-core APQ8064 chipset, 2GB of RAM, and Adreno 320 GPU. Since this tablet is intended for developers, you may not be surprised to hear that it performed well in benchmark tests, but we have a feeling that you'll be left at least a little impressed nonetheless.
Qualcomm has officially released its newest tablet aimed squarely at developers, the Snapdragon S4 Pro Mobile Development Platform. The new tablet makes use of Qualcomm's new quad-core chipset, the APQ8064, which will help deliver the power developers require. That power isn't going to be cheap, however, as the Snapdragon S4 Pro will set you back $1299.
Galaxy S III, the always-tricky US release plans are still a mystery. A Samsung executive said that American versions of the phone would go with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor instead of Samsung's own Exynos 4 Quad, presumably for better compatibility with LTE networks, but we're still in the dark as to which networks it will land on. A user agent string spotted by PocketNow shows something called the "Samsung SCH-I535" running on Big Red, with - you guessed it - a dual-core Snapdragon S4.
HTC One X for AT&T is a different beast from the original (international) release in two rather important ways. First it's got a completely different processor, made by Qualcomm instead of NVIDIA, and second here it's carried by AT&T on a 2-year contract in the USA. Will this non-international release stir up the same positive reactions we had to the first release of this super hero phone, or are the two changes we're seeing here in software and hardware going to push this device in the wrong direction entirely?
