News of a new Samsung Galaxy device really isn’t news at all, is it? I mean, Sammo is firing them out at a rate of one a week (slight exaggeration) at the moment.
However, we’re hearing that a Samsung Galaxy device with an Exynos 5 Dual CPU (formerly the Exynos 5250) in particular might make an appearance before the year is out.
An unnamed source confirmed to Know Your Mobile: “The Samsung Exynos 5 Dual will be present in a Samsung Galaxy device this year.” To be fair, a press release already told us they’d be going into mass production in Q2, so…
We’ve been told that the ARM Cortex A15-based Exynos 5 Dual is capable of processing 14 billion instructions per second, almost doubling the performance of a Cortex A9-based dual-core 1.5GHz processor.
The Exynos 5 Dual supports resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 WQXGA, delivering “readability equivalent to real paper" for the "ultimate electronic reading experience.”
That already sounds to us like possible marketing jargon for a Samsung Galaxy Tab to take on the Retina iPad 3. Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, anyone?
