Samsung has issued a couple of press releases, one detailing the spanking new Exynos 4212 processor, the other dishing the dirt on a 16MP CMOS image sensor.
The press releases are full of numbers and acronyms and junk. Pretty tasty if you’re into that kind of thing. Ready?
The Exynos 4212 is a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 application processor, weighing in at 1.5GHz. It’s 30% more efficient and 25% faster than the Exynos 4210. In addition, it’ll feature an enhanced GPU, delivering 50% higher 3D graphical goodness.
The Samsung Exynos 4212 will be available to “select customers” in Q4 2011, and Sammie reckons it’ll feature in both smartphone and tablets.
The 16MP image sensor is the S5K2P1. Pretty catchy, huh? It boasts 16MP stills and 60fps video at 8.3MP. Samsung explains that it’s designed with “high-performance, advanced smartphones” in mind, as well as digital cameras and camcorders.
The S5K2P1 sensor is currently doing the rounds with “selected customers” (we like that phrase), and is scheduled for mass production this November.
