While this course of evolution of chipsets inside Android handsets isn’t all that surprising, we’re still shocked that phones will be getting quad-core SoCs so soon. One manufacturer said to be at least announcing quad-core phones is HTC. DigiTimes says that they will be snapping up some Tegra 3 chips and will push their own MSM 8906 to be in smartphones that will be shown as early as February this year. That places us at Mobile World Congress, a historically busy event for HTC. We’ll be front row and center for that showing if it does indeed go down there.
