Want to know what will be the brains of the next Galaxy handset (which we think most probably is the Galaxy S III)? Well, here's something for you. Samsung has now confirmed that its own quad-core 1.4GHz Exynos 4 Quad CPU will do the chore, something that we've already gotten wind of before.
According to Samsung, production of the next-gen chip is already on-going and "is scheduled to be adopted first into Samsung's next Galaxy smartphone that will officially be announced in May." As for performance boost, the Exynos 4 chip is said to have twice the processing capability of its predecessor while being able to save power consumption by about 20%, thanks to the so-called High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) low-power technology. That's definitely good news for top-tier smartphones and tablets which aren't known as Energizer Bunnies.
We've yet to know the other goodies that will be under the Galaxy S III's hood, but at least this looks to be official. So far, some of the rumored specs of the device include:
- 4.8-inch full HD 1080p resolution with 16.9 aspect ratio display
- 8-MP rear camera and 2-MP front-facing camera
- 4G LTE connectivity
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
Good thing is, we'll know the details very soon as Sammy's all set to reveal the next Galaxy device next week, May 3 (which is Thursday, FYI). About that, we have a surprise for you, dear Techies! Stay tuned.
