For quite some time now, we’ve been referring to Samsung’s first dual-core processor as Orion. Apparently that was only a codename, as the company has now revealed the chip’s final name: The Exynos 4210.
Why Exynos? The word comes from two Greek words, exypnos and prasinos, meaning smart and green. As if you couldn’t already guess from the logo and name, Samsung is touting the Exynos 4210 as the leader in its “smart and green” strategy, designed to “support the stringent performance and power requirements of mobile devices.”
The 4210 itself will be clocked at 1GHz, but there’s no telling what’s in store from the rest of the Exynos family. According to Korea IT Time, the processor is scheduled to go into production by next month.
