This should bring a round of very sweet smartphones.  Qualcomm will begin shipping its dual-core Snapdragon chips this fall, and devices running on them may also arrive before year’s end. This could include smartphones and tablets, the company said on Monday. Low-cost notebooks could also be powered by the QSD8672 chip, which will be available with a clock speed of up to 1.5GHz.

The majority of devices running on the new chips will arrive in 2011. The MSM8660 chip with a 1.2GHz clock speed and has began shipping in the spring. The 1.5GHz MSM8672 is based on an ARM design and will sport 45nm architecture.

The 8672 will also have better power management than the older, single core Snapdragons, as each CPU can be scaled independently of the other. It will have the ability to play back 1080p videos, and sport integrated HDMI along with DDR2 and DDR3 memory interfaces.
