Quad-core smartphones are all the rage these days, but not so much last year - or so you may have thought. Market research firm Berg Insight, have said that 40 million smartphones featuring quad-core processors shipped last year.
The firm believes that companies have found the sweet spot in terms of specs, where they think the majority of the 1.5 billion smartphones expected to be sold in 2017 will feature quad-core processors, leaving eight-core processors in the sidelines. I don't know about that, but I think we'll see much more efficient processors - that's for sure.
