I just got a response from virgin mobile it is a 1400 mhz single core cpu, Its not to shabby but it will kept me from buying it
From what I've been able to find from reputable sources it has a 1.4GHz quad core. See CNET http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-19736_7-57589875-251/samsung-galaxy-ring-circles-up-with-virgin-mobile-for-$180/ . It would be nice if VM would start posting full specs for their phones when they get them so these questions don't keep coming up...
Android Police says they got in contact with someone at Virgin Mobile who told them it was a Snapdragon S2, single-core.
I called Virgin Mobile and asked the tech support to double check, they said it has a quad core processor.
Hard to believe for the price this phone has a quad core processor. I have done some goggling and found that several sites say 1.4 single core processor. How are you supposed to know if the VM site has wrong information/stats?
Overall, the general consensus says that it's a single core processor, but it could be a Snapdragon 200 quad core, which is a "low-end" quad core, and that would make sense, it's one of the budget friendly processors this year and this phone doesn't have 4G or LTE, and that 200 doesn't support LTE or 4G, just 3G. I'd wait until it's confirmed to get it though.
I ain't really sure....every I checked this thing is saying it's single core but I went on Live Chat on here and the person said yes it has a quad core processor so who's to say?
