Article: iPhone 5 To Have Quad-Core
I've read several articles that reinforces this. I hope it to be true, if so, it should be smoking fast.
If I compare the HTC One X (quad) to the Galaxy Nexus (Dual) the speed differences that I really experience is really negligible. Admittedly the HTC opens apps quicker, the rendering is visually the same... ok, and it doesn't get as warm.
Regardless of this, having Quad is a necessity to stay competitive.
So does this mean the new iPhone will lack LTE? It's my understanding that quad cores and LTE don't play well with each other.
In the US they don't. Why Samsung and HTC went dual core here.
However I've heard rumor of someone having it running on the same chip. Think it was in Asia.
It'll be a nice device with quads, should be pretty peppy.
