HTC has reportedly plumped for the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor running at 1.2GHz for its upcoming smartphone called the Mondrian.
With two physical cores and a total clock speed of 1.2GHz, Qualcomm's latest effort is really turning heads. HTC is hoping to get the Mondrian onto the market with this processor on-board before any of its competitors can get in on the act.
The Mondrian is set to be an impressive smartphone from every angle, with its large touchscreen display supporting a native resolution of 800x1280, allowing for full HD video playback.
It will also have a separate chip to deal with the 3D graphics, which means that every other smartphone will be technically inferior once it arrives.
HTC is planning to use the Windows Phone 7 platform to power the Mondrian, which means fans of Google's Android operating system may be rather less enchanted.
To put the power of the handset's processor into perspective, it is worth noting that the 1.2GHz dual core powerhouse will make this smartphone somewhat significantly more powerful than the brand new iPad recently launched by Apple.
