NVIDIA says quad-core processors are coming to smartphones in the near future

Maybe you aren’t impressed by the speeds of the current generation of smartphones It’s also possible that video yesterday of LG’s dual-core Tegra 2 smartphone or rumors of AT&T’s first dual-core smartphone didn’t resonate with you, you’ll be happy to know that devices with quad-core processors are coming up in the “near future.”

At least according to Tegra 2 maker, NVIDIA.

Yesterday, NVIDIA released a whitepaper that talks about the benefits of multi-core CPUs inside of mobile devices. Deep within that PDF file is a one sentence line that reads:

Dual-core processors will be the standard in 2011, and quad-core is coming in the near future.

As Android and Me points out, NVIDIA has already said that a new Tegra would be out every single year and that the Tegra 3 is almost finished and the Tegra 4 is already being developed. Of course, NVIDIA doesn’t elaborate on what “near future” means exactly however because devices are going to be rolling out with dual-core processors as soon as Q1 rolls around, we very well could see a quad-core smartphone towards the end of 2011.

So, we have to ask.

How many of you just put a quad-core, LTE enabled smartphone on your 2011 wish list?
