Much of the news surrounding processors these days have the word Tegra somewhere in the headline. No doubt, the quad-core Tegra 3 has had much fanfare surrounding it for damn good reason. Enter Samsung. After bringing several chips that have seen great use in offerings like the Galaxy S, Galaxy S II, and now the Galaxy Nexus, Samsung has announced that their new SoC (system on a chip) Exynos 5250 will be hitting phones by Q2 of 2012.
The Exynos 5250 will be a 2.0GHz SoC which would be an industry first for the mobile world. The mobile manufacturer announced that the new 5250 would probably only be making appearances in high-end tablets and perhaps a few cell phones. What’s great about the processor isn’t merely its clock speed however, it is that the chip supports displays up to 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. For those keeping track, this will be able to run circles around your current phone while playing a Blu-Ray movie (not actually verified with data). In any case, the world now plays the waiting game.
