Samsung reveals 1.5Ghz dual-core processor, could make it into the new Nexus phone

Posted:  September 29, 2011   By:    5 comments   


Weeks ahead of its big Unpacked event, Samsung has announced the latest addition to its range of Exynos processors called the Exynos 4212. The dual-core Samsung Exynos 4212 will replace the 4210 chip that powers the Samsung Galaxy S II. Like it’s predecessor, the 4212 is based on the ARM Cortex A-9 core as well.

The biggest difference between the new Exynos 4212 and its predecessor is its processor’s clock speed. The new 4212 variant runs at 1.5GHz while the old 4210 variant pushes out 1.2Ghz. The graphic processor unit has also been given a performance boost. Samsung claims that the new chip has a GPU that is 50% more powerful that the unit it replaces. On top of all that, the 4212 is also 30% more power efficient that the current 4210 unit.

The proximity of the launch of this new processor indicates that it could make it into the upcoming Nexus phone (believed to be called the Nexus Prime) that is expected to be unveiled on October 11 in San Diego.
