Nokia CEO Stephen Elop reportedly stated that multi-core mobile processors are a waste of battery life which is the same with the Laptop Battery  in a recent interview with a Chinese newspaper. Yangcheng Evening News quotes Elop as having said, “the so-called dual-core, quad-core mobile phones can only waste batteries, but not be useful for consumers all the time.” Microsoft’s Windows Phone mobile operating system does not support multi-core chipsets, but the company has been highlighting the “real world performance” of its handsets through the “Smoked by Windows Phone” challenge. Elop went on to claim that the company’s flagship Lumia 900 has never been defeated by the iPhone or an Android smartphone, despite the dual-core and quad-core processors found in those devices.

Speaking in an interview with a Chinese newspaper, Elop highlighted that many multi-core handsets suffer from battery issues like the laptop battery.

Elop said: “The so-called dual-core, quad-core mobile phones can only waste batteries which like the laptop battery such as Lenovo Laptop Battery, but not be useful for consumers all the time.”

Nokia are yet to release a dual or quad core phone, and Elop is quick to point out that the Nokia Lumia 900 is beating all iPhone and Android handsets which cross its path in its “Smoked by Windows Phone” marketing campaign.

It’s worth noting that the Windows Phone 7 operating system does not support mulit-core processors, something Windows Phone 8 Apollo is expected to address and which may be the real reason Nokia has stayed on the single-core path.

Nokia may have competition straight out of the Windows Phone 8 starting blocks though, as Samsung’s Taiwanese arm has claimed the company will be launching a handset running the new operating system when it launches in October.

“We’ve changed the clock speed of Nokia,” CEO Stephen Elop proclaimed less than two months ago at Mobile World Congress.

Elop declared that Nokia’s products were now in more than 100 markets, that the company had shipped three new phones in the past year, that it was dominating in places like Russia, and that it had launched a location and commerce unit, which produced an initial set of apps, like Transit, Drive, and Maps.

Nokia then announced some new “feature phones,” showed off the Lumia 900, hyped enhancements to its location apps, and then, in a bit of a surprise, unveiled the PureView 808, a smartphone with a–this isn’t a typo–41 megapixel camera running–this isn’t a typo, either–Symbian. Windows Phone 7, Microsoft’s compelling, but fledgling phone platform, is the one to which Nokia has tightly hitched its future prospects.
