    Does anyone have any predictions as to when this will start to come out?

    I'd guess at the end of 2011 (not likely) or Q1/Q2 of 2012. Not sure the world's ready for dual-core phones yet; battery life is a problem with our good ol' single-core 1 GHz Snapdragons as it is.

    my guess.. it will be out by end of 2011. I will like to know.. how they will handle the power consumption.. of CPU and 4G combined!!!!!

    I read somewhere that the future dual core Samsung chips will actually consume less power than the current Hummingbird due to better architecture.

    Everything in the future will consume less power due to technological developments.

    Unless HTC can find a better way to better manage the battery lives of their phones. Id be very weary of being excited for a 1.5ghz Incredible 2.

    No problemo... the new phones will come with one of these:


    Just stay outside and never unplug your smartphone... you'll be fine!

    Gotta love progress, Moore Law's in full effect; although the thought of either a quad core or 3 Ghz phone in 2012 is insane

    G.Armour You know you want to.

    I thought I read somewhere that Motorola was putting out a phone like this soon...

    Moto was rumored to have a 2Ghz single core by the end of the year but they pulled that forecast and now likely will debut a dual core [probably 1.5Ghz a piece early 2011]. Much like PC's I think we might see additional cores be the en vogue thing as continuing to chase clockspeed could prove difficult with a die shrink and more active cooling of the cpu

    Yeah, it's easier to manage heat with multiple cores with a lower clock speed than a single core that's a missile. Heat is the ultimate enemy of clock speed.

    I'm just waiting for the days of multicore phones connected via bluetooth to a screen and headset built into a pair of shades. You can choose to view the device in your shades as if on a giant screen, or make it opaque and view data like a heads up display. :D
