Samsung Announces Exynos 4 Quad, Coming to Galaxy S III
Can't wait until May 3rd for Samsung's big Galaxy unveiling? Well, neither could Samsung.
Earlier this month we were teased with invites to Samsung's Mobile Unpacked event on May 3rd, where it will be presenting the next Galaxy smartphone. To add to the anticipation, Samsung has introduced its Exynos 4 Quad-core processor designed for future smartphones and tablets, specifically the upcoming Galaxy S III.
“Already in production, the Exynos 4 Quad is scheduled to be adopted first into Samsung’s next Galaxy smartphone that will officially be announced in May. Samsung’s Exynos 4 Quad is also sampling to other major handset makers.”
The Exynos 4 Quad is clocked at 1.4GHz on all four ARM Cortex A9 cores, and claims to have 20-percent lower power consumption than its predecessors due to its 32 nm High-k Metal Gate technology and quad-core efficiency. To further improve battery life, the Exnyos 4 Quad features the ability to turn on and off each core depending on the needs of your workload. Not only does the new processor feature a power-saving design, it also claims to have double the processing power of its 45 nm based Exnyos 4 Dual predecessor.
“The quad-core processor offers phenomenal multitasking abilities surpassing any single or dual application processor. Since all the cores must share a single battery, the power management and efficiency in the limited battery capacity are indispensable for mobile computing devices,” said Taehoon Kim, vice president of System LSI marketing, Device Solutions, Samsung Electronics. “Given the diverse functionalities consumers are demanding from their mobile devices today, the Exynos 4 Quad meets those high-performance needs while keeping power consumption very low.”
