Motorola has enjoyed a nice, fruitful relationship with TI and NVIDIA, but new evidence suggests they may be looking at Qualcomm’s arsenal of chipsets for at least one upcoming phone. A GLBenchmark result for one Motorola MB886, a device believed to be headed to AT&T. The benchmark surprisingly shows that the device will house Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 MSM8960.
While we’re sure AT&T would love to get NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 into their devices, they have to consider options which are currently playing nice with LTE. It’s a good decision over TI’s current OMAP4 platform. While both are dual-core technologies, the S4 enjoys significant performance gains over ordinary dual-ore processors. This should please many of you who believe OMAP4 is feeling a bit dated (and I wouldn’t blame you if you do). [via Droid-Life]
