A number of manufacturers showed off quad core smartphones at this years Mobile World Congress, Sony didn’t show off any new quad core devices and now it appears that we may have to wait until 2013 to see quad core smartphones from Sony.
Cnet Asia recently spoke to Stephen Sneeden, who is the product marketing manager for Sony Mobile, and he indicated that Sony wont release any quad core smartphones until next year.
“We’re going to join quad-core when we feel that the performance matches the battery efficiency,” he said. “Because right now we don’t feel that is there. What we are going to be doing in the second-half of the year is moving to the Cortex A15 architecture, which we feel outperforms the current quad-core architecture.”
“You’ll see in 2013, as we’re evaluating the quad-core performance where it makes sense, where you’re not suffering in quality and the performance truly is there, and there really is something that demanding applications need. That’s when we make the right move to quad-core.”
Sony recently announced a range of new dual core smartphones so it looks like we may have to wait until next year to see some quad core ones from the company.
