The highly anticipated successor of the Samsung Galaxy S2, the Galaxy S3, will be the first Android smartphone to sport Samsung’s first quad-core Exynos 4412 chip. This cutting-edge processor is said to be faster but more energy efficient compared to current mobiles.
The news comes to us via Korea Times. The newspaper quotes one of the Korean tech giant’s executives who said that the S3 would be the first to sport the new chipset.
The Exynos 4412 chip is a monster of a processor. It is a 32-nm chip sporting four individual ARM Cortex A9 cores. Each of these cores are clocked at 1.5 GHz. Not only is this chipset 26% faster compared to other chipsets, it is said to save as much as 50% battery life. Pretty impressive.
Smartphones sporting quad-core processors seem to be the trend in Android flagships. HTC launched the One X, LG launched the Optimus 4X, and Huawei launched the Ascend D Quad. All made their first appearance at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona back in February. We’re dying to compare all these quad-core superphones with the Samsung Galaxy S3 once it is officially unveiled.
