Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series quad-core benchmarks

Qualcomm may have introduced the Snapdragon 800 processor a little while back, and while we suspect some may be wondering why we have yet to see any real announcements since that point in time, it seems there was an actual plan in action. Just to give a bit of background, the plan was to announce the goods and then have the parts out ahead of time to give developers time to build. That bit aside, we do have a bit of good news today as we have recently spent some time playing.

LG Optimus L9 II leaks: large-screened and low-powered

With their successes with the Google Nexus 4 and the Optimus G and G Pro, LG should at this point be more than ready to continue their drive into the future with more large-screened smartphone machines. Here in the spring of 2013, another device has been spotted that's not yet been made official - not here with the most recent wave of USA carrier releases, and not back at Mobile World Congress 2013 where they made their first push apparent.

QUALCOMM Snapdragon 800 tipped for production in late May

QUALCOMM has certainly been successful with its existing Snapdragon 600 platform.

Pantech Vega Iron busts out to break down GALAXY S 4 and HTC One

With Pantech on the rise in not only South Korea but here in the USA as well, it's only a little surprising to find them teasing their next-generation smartphone "Vega Iron" with a processor more powerful than the GALAXY S 4.

To outdo such a move, the Pantech Vega Iron will be pumping up with the Snapdragon 800, a processor we've only seen in the lab before today.
