With Qualcomm testing out their new dual-CPU Snapdragon processors, one such kind is now shipped out to one of their hardware partners (HTC is their biggest partner). The new device from qualcomm packs in a 45nm manufacturing process and therefore its sure to have ultra-low power consumption.

With each separate core running at a speed of 1.2 GHZ these would handle almost all the processing like hot knife on butter.

Other features includes support for a powerful GPU, 24-bit WXGA 1280 x 800 resolution support, HSPA+ networks and 1080p video encode/decode support.

The new MSM8260 and MSM8660 are substantial since they are going to be the first ever dual CPU Snapdragon from Qualcomm.

This device possibly targets the new comer from HTC ie the HTC Vision.

HTC Vision Specs
