Samsung has revealed it plans to release its first smartphone powered by a two-gigahertz dual core processor some time next year.
With the novelty of custom skins slowly starting to wear off and smartphones becoming increasingly analogous in capabilities, intense competition between manufacturers has resulted in heavy-hitter like Sammy dramatically shifting focus on to higher and faster specs to stay ahead of the pack.
An unnamed high-ranking exec with the Korean giant has reportedly told search provider Daum: “We are planning to release a 2GHz dual-core CPU-equipped smartphone by next year.
“This product will have the data processing capacities of a regular PC.”
According to Daum, although it is cheaper and easier to develop a single core 4GHz chipset, Samsung has opted for dual core as it is better optimised for multitasking.
Another potential benefit would be the ability to use the smartphone as a portable PC with any HDTV or monitor, or even a custom-built accessory like Motorola’s ‘Lapdock’, which teams with the recently launched Atrix handset to become a fully functional laptop. It’s a prospect that’s sure to make any tech aficionado dizzy with excitement.
Keep em’ peeled for more news and announcement regarding the handset in the near future.
