Qualcomm S4 Pro quad-core developer tablet benchmarks and hands-on

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 Snapdragon S4 Pro tablet releases at $1299

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.

Verizon’s Galaxy S III spotted in user agent with Snapdragon S4

While we've learned just about all the juicy details about the upcoming Samsung 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.

AT&T HTC One X Review

The 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?

HTC One X Tegra 3 and Snapdragon versions benchmarked

Plenty of US Android fans were somewhat miffed when HTC announced that the AT&T version of the flagship One X would be getting a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, instead of the more flamboyant NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core. As we've seen ourselves when comparing the One X with the smaller One S, the Snapdragon is no slouch. But to finally set the record straight, one YouTube user put both versions of the One X in a head-to-head benchmark battle. The results may surprise you.

Galaxy S III may have dual-core Snapdragon in the US

We've seen this before: a highly-anticipated flagship phone that gets slightly different internals for the US market. LAst time it was the HTC One X, which gets a dual-core Snapdragon S4 on AT&T instead of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 found on the international version. Now a Samsung source has indicated a similar situation for the Galaxy S III. The Korea Times reports that an unnamed Samsung executive claimed that while the European version of the Galaxy S III will get the Exynos 4 Quad, US versions of the phone will go with a Qualcomm processor instead.

Samsung SCH-i200 headed to Verizon with ICS and Snapdragon S4

News on new Samsung phones for Verizon has been a little dry as of late - their last major release for the carrier was the Galaxy Nexus five months ago. But new details about an upcoming phone were uncovered on the Bluetooth SIG website and GL Benchmark describing the SCH-i200 "Jasper", complete with Verizon tags in its software. Most interestingly, it's running Ice Cream Sandwich and Qualcomm's celebrated Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 dual-core processor.

Qualcomm posts $4.9 billion in revenue for Q2 – Up 28%

It's that time of the quarter again where everyone is posting up their earnings reports and going over the numbers. Google just posted theirs and today Qualcomm has announced their earnings report, showing a pretty great Q2 of 2012. These results already have plenty of sales from their new Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor for upcoming phones like the HTC One S, but with it barely hitting the streets surely Q3 will look even better.

Motorola benchmark shows Snapdragon S4 processor

If you've bought a Motorola phone in the last two years, odds are overwhelming that it runs either a Texas Instruments or NVIDIA Tegra processor. But that may be changing soon: Blog of Mobile reports that the American manufacturer has a previously unknown phone coming in the near future, and surprisingly it's running the increasingly popular Snapdragon S4 processor. Aside from the benchmark there's very little to go on, but the radio bands indicate that the phone is headed for AT&T, and the screen resolution is an impressive 720p. It sounds like it could be an LTE variant of the DROID RAZR HD.
