Hands On with the HTC One X and Sense 4
Most Qualcomm chips do put the modem and processor on one chip, which helps battery life and size. But Qualcomm hasn't made such a chip with LTE before now. That's why LTE phones have been known for large size and having poor battery life; they had to cram two big, power-hungry chips in there.
But this year, phones like the One X with a single Snapdragon S4 should be smaller and more power-efficient.
I know Apple was probably waiting on Qualcomm right?
i heard about the new ongoing research project where they're trying to add solar panels besides the touchscreen to convert the light emitted by the screen into stored energy again helping extend batt life by a few years. i think we're still years away from getting that so knowing that processors extend batt life is a very good thing too.
Let's not give Apple any ideas! Shhhh
