Qualcomm has announced details of its next-generation SnapDragon processors, known in consumer parlance as the S4 line. The MSM 8960 S4 chip, for example, will include dual-core processors that are integrated with a Long Term Evolution 4G baseband chip. Combining the processor with the baseband will reduce the footprint needed for these components within smartphones and tablets. The result, says Qualcomm, will be much thinner devices that have better battery life and fast 4G wireless performance. The S4 line will also be able to support 3D capture as well as HD 3D video playback; augmented reality and gesture-based applications; and device-maker programmable digital signal processing to offer better quality audio. According to Qualcomm, the S4 chips are already sampling to select hardware makers and are expected to hit store shelves in some smartphones and tablets as soon as early 2012. Qualcomm said that the highest end of the S4 range of chips -- the quad-core 8064 -- is still under development and is expected to reach the market during the second half of 2012.
