CHIP DESIGNER Nvidia has confirmed that smartphones with Tegra 3 quad-core processors will appear at Mobile World Congress (MWC).
The show kicks off later this month in Barcelona and Nvidia's invitation touting "more quad-core firsts" features a smartphone, according to Android Central. The firm claims its Tegra 3 chips will demonstrate performance and great battery life at the show focused on phones and tablets.
It's a slightly tenuous link but one of the quad-core boasting handsets to be unveiled could be from HTC. The handset in the picture looks remarkably like the HTC Incredible S with its shrink wrapped rear cover.
However, it is the HTC Edge that was leaked last November that will supposedly come with the Tegra 3 quad-core chip. HTC doesn't comment on rumour or speculation so we'll have to wait until MWC to see what materialises.
With Samsung confirming that the successor to the Galaxy S II will not be announced at MWC, it looks like quad-core offerings will make the headlines. µ
