Default Dual Core cricket hydro?

I was at the cricket store today to buy a new smartphone. My old one broke and I had looked online at the various models, however when I got to the store, the Hydro was there even though it didn't show on the web site for me.

At any rate It was a professional looking display for the phone and one of the bullet items was

* 1ghz dual core snapdragon CPU.

So, seeing that, and a relatively new 4.0 os, I bought it. Now everything I've read online says that the hydro is a single core CPU, and I can't find mention of dual core anywhere else...

Anyone know what the deal is?

(Anyhow the store I bought from was the corporate cricket store in zip code 15203)

It's probably listed that way as a selling point. Someone sees "dual-core!" and assumes that it's good or better even though this is undoubtedly a lower end device.

On the Boost Mobile site, it says 1 GHz QUALCOMM Snapdragon Processor. The Cricket Site says the exact same thing: 1 Ghz Snapdragon® processor.

Both spec pages on the website leave out the 'dual core' part. For all we know, it could actually be a dual-core processor, but it's still only 1Ghz either way.

Did I miss something MAJOR???

How could you POSSIBLY have cm 10.1????? There isn't even a recovery for they hydro... either I'm completely in the dark or you are very confused.

There's a custom recovery for cricket version but it doesn't work as you would think it would see the boot loader is locked you have to find a way to unlock it I just used ROM manager and it succeeded for me

This is news to me. I bought a Cricket Hydro two weeks ago. Dual core? As slow as it is its hard to believe. However, I have noticed that even when it gets slow or freezes up the Muve Music app doesn't seem to be effected. Is it possible there is a second core which is dedicated solely to the music player? We have already found that the Muve Music SD cards have a hidden partition that can't be reformatted. Dual core wouldn't surprise me but for the price, $99.00.

(Edit) BTW, custom recovery for Cricket version? Please share this with me.

Yeah, I did a quick search on this. Its single core. Here's everything you want to know about Kyocera Hydro Specs including the Cricket version.
http://www.morecellphone.com/phones/kyocera-hydro/688
(Edit) Here's another link. Not all specs (internal storage for instance) correct in above one

http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=3771
(Edit) seems I was mistaken in my last post. Muve Music app is affected when phone gets slow. Never noticed before.
