During HTC’s World Mobile World Congress 2011 press conference this morning, HTC and and Qualcomm announced a new alliance to bring multi-core processors to HTCs line of smartphones. While many of the flagship smartphones launched by HTC’s competitors featured dual-core chips, HTC’s new smartphones, and even its new Flyer tablet, continue with single-core chips. Dr Paul Jacobs the chairman and CEO of Qualcomm explained that HTC and Qualcomm have been working closely to deliver a powerful next-gen platform for HTC’s forthcoming devices.

Qualcomm announced on Monday that its Snapdragon family of mobile processors would evolve into new single-, dual- and quad-core chipsets. The new range will be headlined by its new ‘Krait’ architecture based on a 28nm scale and will reach speeds of up to 2.5GHz per core.

When compared with the first generation of Snapdragon chips and depending on configuration, the new chipset is expected to deliver up to 12 times the performance, yet deliver a 75 percent improvement in energy efficiency.

It can be expected the partnership between HTC and Qualcomm will deliver devices featuring the new dual-core and possibly the quad-core processors based on Qualcomm’s revised architecture.
