Motorola quad-core phones to launch in early 2012?

Bullet and Jet could be first Tegra 3 packing devices

A not too distant quad-core future tipped for Motorola

The Motorola Bullet and Jet are rumoured to be the names of Moto's first quad-core processor smartphones which we can expect to see more of in Q1 2012.

The ambitious rumour-mongering comes courtesy of Droid-Life who has been tipped off about the new handsets, both which will apparently run on NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processors.

First up is the keyboard-less Motorola Bullet which will sport a 4.3-inch qHD screen, Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 16GB storage, at least 1GB RAM, a NFC chip and a 12-megapixel camera.

The Motorola Jet will alternatively sport a chiclet-style keyboard, and host a 4-inch qHD screen. Similarly there will be the Tegra 3 quad core processor, 1.5GB RAM, 16GB storage NFC chip and 12-megapixel camera

Droid-Life suggest that Bullet will arrive before the Jet and believes talk of the handsets corroborate with information from NVIDIA that Tegra 3 technology is expected to be in devices by the end of 2011.

Having unleashed the dual-core packing Motorola Atrix at CES this year, there is every chance Moto could do the same with a quad-core smartphone or smartphones. Without any other sources to back up talk of the Bullet and the Jet, it will remain as speculation for the time being, but interesting speculation nonetheless.
