This version of the S4 chip, code-named Krait, is an ARMv7-A compatible CPU architecture and is made for TCMC's 28nm process, and inside the MSM9860 you'll find two of these cores running at up to 1.5 GHz along with Adreno 225 graphics, Qualcomm's new baseband, and improved ISP - it's all ramped up, basically. This device we're testing the Snapdragon S4 out on is not a consumer product, instead it's a device which accurately shows the power of the S4 chip exclusively.
