HP Pre 3 Silently Gets A 1.2 GHz Dual-core CPU In The UK

Now here's a shocker for you - the upcoming Hewlett Packard (HP) Pre 3 will be packing a dual-core Central Processing Units (CPU) at launch, rather than the single-core unit it was initially assumed to feature. Hewlett Packard (HP) has remained surprisingly quiet about the change, but the Pre 3 specs sheet on its website now say "elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-Central Processing Units (CPU) APQ8060 1.2GHz".

If you have been paying attention you would know that this is the same chipset that powers the Hewlett Packard (HP) TouchPad tablet. And if the two 1.2 Giga Hertz (GHz) cores are fine enough to power a tablet, they should do wonders for a smartphone and its lower resolution. Of course, we will never be able to see how the 1.4 Giga Hertz (GHz) single-core alternative does, but we are still confident that Hewlett Packard (HP) is giving us a fine deal here.

What seems a bit suspicious is that none of the other specs of the Hewlett Packard (HP) Pre 3 have changed. Usually replacing the processor of a mobile phone involves changing the whole chipset and that might lead to a few other changes. So there's an outside chance that the Central Processing Units (CPU) change was nothing, but a typo by whoever maintains the Hewlett Packard (HP) UK website.

The Pre 3 should be coming out any day now, so at least we won't have to wait for too long to find out.
