Windows Phone 8 devices to use Snapdragon S4 Plus

For those who feared that Windows Phone 8 devices will still lag behind the competition in raw power, well, good news: Qualcomm has told The Verge that the upcoming generation of Windows Phones is going to use the company’s line of Snapdragon S4 SoCs, or more specifically the Plus version with upgraded graphics. One of the most powerful and efficient ARM chips today, the dual-core S4 as found in AT&T’s version of the recently launched HTC One X Android device is able to match and even beat the quad-core Tegra 3 of the One X’s international variation in most benchmarks. Since Windows Phone 8 is being touted as having great multi-core capabilities, there’s even the possibility of even faster, if more power-hungry, quad-core S4 chips.
