Samsung plans 2GHz dual-core smartphone

Written by


Should appear sometime in 2012
According to a Korean business magazine, Samsung is working on a 2GHz dual-core ARM processor and it believes it can introduce the world’s first 2GHz phone sometime next year, as a part of its new Exynos brand.

A high ranking Samsung official claims that the company will also offer the new processors on the open market, which means it could end up in quite a few phones and tablets. The company believes the new processors could deliver PC-class performance, which is a rather ambiguous claim.

Although the company rep did not mention tablets, it is quite clear such a processor would be a rather logical choice for next generation tablets, perhaps even netbooks.

However, it is worth noting that other ARM players are also working on rather interesting projects, including tri-core and quad-core processors and some of them should also hit the market next year.

Turdgra 3 will fail. Epically.

I would like a dual-core 2GHz phone to have a 5-5.5" screen with a 720x1280 resolution screen! I'm sick of sleek handhelds - I want a true chunky sci-fi prop! :P

5.5? 4.3 is perfect

What we need is more emphasis on the battery ffs. 2ghz phone sounds useless to me considering the current quality of apps.

I think this is the right way to go: there's no way a smartphone needs a quad-core: even a lot of PC-applications can't make use of 4 cores. But as with PC's, the software developers need to catch up: If they do, I believe that smartphones can offer graphics up to what current consoles can within the next couple of years.

And an increase in ram wouldn't hurt either. What's with the Bionic only having 512mb with it's dual core compared to the single core Thunderbolt running 768mb?

This is what the 28nm process is capable of, hence why the iPhone 5 was probably delayed.

The most important thing for me now is not the processor speed or screen size/resolution, or how thin the phone is as things like that have all plateaued more or less for me.

What would make a much bigger difference to me is a vast improvement in signal strength and quality and battery life.

I would like to see a proper camera sensor in a phone too with a decent lens. It doesn't have to be a zoom lens but just a high quality 25mm prime with a 1/1.7" sensor. So you can truly throw away your compact camera and just use your phone.
