Samsung to Ship Dual-Core Smartphones in 2012

Are you sure the 4GHz chips are easier to make - if that were really the case, our desktops would have that short of speed.  In a heat and power restricted space (pocket size device), a smarter not faster chip wins.



There's a huuuuge difference between the embedded processors in a smartphone and the ones in our desktop PCs. Don't think that what applies to one also applies to the other.



It says 2012 in the article, but I'm not clear on the issue.

However, faster phones for more general-purpose usage and better multitasking sound great. We might even be seeing dedicated GPUs outside of the CPU soon enough. The possibilities are endless for developers and end-users alike.



The article's title is a little confusing. Isn't it that Samsung is aiming for a 2GHz dual core next year? IIRC, the Galaxy S2 which is powered by a 1.2GHz dual core is going to come out in the next few months.
