NVIDIA has already told us that there will be Tegra 3 quad-core smartphones on display at the Mobile World Congress which is scheduled to take place in Barcelona later on this month. Thing is, we didn’t know when we’d see the device or devices launch. With new technology of this sort, announcements can sometimes precede actual releases by quite some time. See: Motorola Droid Bionic. Well, turns out, we likely won’t have to wait long before Tegra 3 smartphones hit the market, this according to NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.
He has apparently told investors that smartphones rocking the company’s Tegra 3 chipset are expected to ship during the quarter. That means that we shouldn’t have to wait too long after the conclusion of MWC on March 1st to see the first quad-core smartphones hit shelves.
Obviously, this is fantastic news for those of you that are in the market for a new, powerful smartphone.
And while we’re not one hundred percent sure what we’re going to be seeing at this year’s MWC in terms of quad-core smartphones, we have a pretty good bead.
HTC and LG figure to be the prominent companies involved with the announcements.
We’ve heard that HTC will be announcing a high-end quad-core powered smartphone called the HTC Edge/Endeavor that may actually be branded as the HTC One X.
Fujitsu is also rumored to be unveiling its mysterious quad-core smartphone as well.
It’s unclear which of these NVIDIA’s CEO is referring to as far as the release window is concerned but luckily, we only have a couple of days left before we find out what we’re going to be seeing arrive on shelves.
