Samsung has unveiled a powerful new processor, raising the prospect that the third Galaxy S-branded phone could pack double the brawn as the blockbuster blower that is the S2.
Showcased yesterday, the Exynos 5250 comprises two ARM Cortex-A15 processors and offers twice the CPU performance of the top-end current-generation Galaxy kits.
It’s also capable of four times the graphics performance of A9 chips currently in use and supports super high density resolution displays, according to Boy Genius Report.
The chip is due to go into production in the second quarter of 2012 and is most likely to heavily feature on future additions to the Galaxy Tab range of slates.
However, with the likes of rival HTC reportedly prepping Android kits toting quad-core processors, we think there’s every chance the Exynos 5250 could make an appearance on the as-yet-unannounced Galaxy S3, with Sammy keen to avoid being outgunned in the brawn department.
The S3, which will have to go some way to match the 10 million sales-plus of the S2, is also rumoured to be home to a flexible Super AMOLED display.
