Have you ever imagined a smartphone with performance matching a desktop computer? Well if you haven’t, then you will have to say a big hello to Samsung’s 2 GHz dual core smartphone which will be coming next year. A smartphone equipped with a 2 GHz dual core processors would be able to compete with the performance level of desktop computers. Most desktop computers used these days have 3-4 GHz processors. This will surely be very exciting and I wonder how blazing fast of a mobile experience it would be.
“We are planning to release a 2 GHz dual core CPU-equipped smartphone by next year,” said a prominent official of Samsung. He added, “This product will have the data processing capacities of a regular PC.”
As of the moment, the dual core processor that will be used in the device is still under development. Most likely, it will be under the Exynos brand which was also released by Samsung last February. They are expected to start offering the Exynos chips to other manufacturers, replacing Qualcomm’s Snapdragon.
When we say ‘dual core’ processor, it includes two processor units in just one component. This simply means that the processor speed of the device is doubled up. Since it will be a 2 GHz processor, it will give data processing capacities of 4 GHz. In reality, it is a lot easier to design a 4 GHz processor compared to a 2 GHz dual core processor. However Samsung chooses a 2 GHz dual core since it is a superior design for a smartphone, and brings with it added power savings benefits. Dual core processing facilitates multitasking by allotting the workload on two separate cores, and when one core is only needed, the other one consumes little to no power.
Considering that Samsung is one of the largest manufacturers in the semiconductor business now, and is likely to take the performance title of world’s fastest phone with the Samsung Galaxy S II, where do you think this is all headed?
Are you ready for this?
