We already know that Samsung brings much benefit with the manufacture of components for other brands. This not only brings economic benefits, but it also plays better with one integration between hardware and software for your designs to make your own components.
Today the Korean firm has filed what could well be the components star of its next generation of Android terminals, and is that we have been able to know to the evolution of the Exynos processor He released the Galaxy SII best seller, as well as a new 16 Megapixel camera designed for smartphones.
Firstly, we have the new processor Exynos 4212 dual-core (ARM Cortex-A9), which represents a great improves with respect to its predecessor in several respects. To start, improves the speed 1.5 GHz, a 25% speed increase.
In addition, it will be made with 32 nanometer technology, baptized as High-K Metal Gate, which on paper It will improve the energy consumption by 30%. It should be recalled that Nvidia Tegra 3 is designed and manufactured in 40nm.
If this were little, the new platform will release a new GPU, of which only has said that it will improve a 50% performance. We can assume that it will be a new version of ARM Mali GPU, though neither is possible to be a new GPU PowerVR.
Secondly, a new CMOS sensor for smartphones, name S5K2P1, has been with 16-Megapixel and Backside illumination technology pixel of 1. 34um, than It will improve the quality of intakes with low light.
This new camera module is capable of recording in standard format 16:9, with a resolution of 8.3 megapixels at 60 fps, you go up to 16 MP if we recorded at 30 fps.
New ones very powerful components, that they can flag the new high-end Samsung next year, specifications to be star of the Galaxy SIII, if it is as well the evolution of Galaxy SII called finally. In addition, you could speculate that the new Nexus Prime, who manufactures Samsung and will be presented on 11 October, also rides one of these new components, although this seems unlikely knowing that the Nexus range usually marked reference, without pretending to be the most powerful of the market.
