Verizon 4G LTE Dual core phones coming soon?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
What phones are coming to Verizon soon that have 4G and are dual core? These are the two main features I want in a phone and it seems that it's not possible right now. I've heard about the Droid Bionic, what else? I will honestly probably end up buying the first 4G LTE dual core phone released. I've had an upgrade saved for over a year now..

Are you planning to use custom bootloaders? There was an article in the news section here that stated HTC was going to keep their phones unlocked (at least for now).


For how powerful that class of smartphone would be I think size and interface would be the only options to worry about, but I'm not up to date on phones

I will probably use custom bootloaders, yes. I really like the look of the Samsung Galaxy SII so I will probably end up getting that when it comes out, but I just want to know if there's any other good phones to look out for. It's not currently known if the Galaxy SII (Samsung Function on Verizon) will have 4G LTE though..

The LG revolution is a single core snapdragon processor, sorry to say.

The first dual core LTE should be the Bionic, but it is still a couple months off.

And about bootloaders, Motorola and HTC are basically saying it is not going to be their decision anymore, it will be the carriers decision. And I'm pretty sure Verizon is going to have the phones locked down

How much of a difference will a dual core really make? I don't play that many games on my phone and really just want a good music/youtube/facebook/ forum browsing experience. From what I've been hearing a 4G LTE single core snapdragon will be better for this than a 3G dual core like the Droid X2. Is this true?
