With the HTC Quad Core (quad-core processor), which should arrive in the first quarter of 2012, Samsung had to respond by offering as a Quad Core. The Galaxy S3 will ship there so a new Exynos?
The Galaxy features a current S2 Exynos 4210 clocked at 1.2 GHz. Samsung recently announced the Exynos 4212 dual core but still clocked at 1.5 GHz and provides 30% less consumption thanks to 32nm in finer engraving and 3D performance increased by 50% compared to the current Exynos.
This leap in performance is insufficient to compete with HTC with their quad core from Nvidia Tegra 3 Samsung is therefore set to work and we are preparing to Exynos four hearts. The Exynos 4412 would be engraved in 32nm too, these hearts are the ARM 9 to 1.5 GHz. For the GPU we all hope that Samsung will use the MALI T604 that delivers performance five times higher than the MALI currently used on the Galaxy S2.
The combination Exynos 4412 / MALI T604 might be the "engine" of the next Galaxy S3 will surely be presented at Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona! If this is the case Samsung should get ahead on the Tegra architecture 3!
The answer to the first quarter of 2012
