Even though Samsung has been delaying any announcements about the Galaxy S3, it is clear that people are still taking an interest to know all about the new device. Today, however, the company decided to take a break and discuss the much anticipated Exynos 5250 chipset.

If you can recall, we’ve already been setting ourselves on the lookout for the new chipset. It is actually a System-on-a-Chip (SoC) which is scheduled to be released into mass production on the Q2 of the year. Currently, it is making the rounds with Android manufacturers and seeing productivity updates. The different thing about this chipset is that it features a couple of Cortex-A15 cores operating at 2.0GHz. In comparison with the current Cortex-A9 chip used in today’s devices, the new SoC is expected to give a complete boost in performance.

According to Samsung, it has plans to quadruple the graphics performance on their current models. They have also expressed plans to power tablets with the new chipset first before moving onto smartphones. Experts are suggesting the SoC will be making an appearance on a Galaxy Tab sometime soon. People are also hoping the chipset will debut on the third generation of Samsung’s flagship droid unit, the Samsung Galaxy S3.


But how will the Exynos 5250 stand up against quad-core chips already available in the market? Let us know in the comments below.
