HTC working on own processors with ST-Ericsson

It seems HTC is readying its own set of processors. According to a report in China Times, Taiwanese manufacturer has signed a memorandum of cooperation with ST-Ericsson to develop application processor for low-end smartphones.

This processor is expected to go in production next year. There are currently no details available about this deal between HTC and ST-Ericsson, but we expect an announcement soon.

With manufacturers like Samsung and Apple already using their own processor in devices, HTC too wants to reduce dependence on Qualcomm and NVIDIA.
