During Samsung's earnings call, they took a minute to talk about the Exynos 5250 System-on-a-Chip (SoC) they announced last year. It's already sampling to manufacturers and it will go into mass production in Q2 this year.
The chipset packs two Cortex-A15 cores running at 2.0GHz, which reportedly have double the performance of their Cortext-A9 predecessors. We can't wait to see how Exynos 5250 stacks up against quad-core chipsets coming this year.
Details on the GPU are pretty scarce, all Samsung said when they announced the chipset was that it will quadruple the graphics performance of their current models (they are presumably talking about the successor of the Mali-400 GPU).
Samsung said that the Exynos 5250 will be used to power tablets first and eventually smartphones. They didn’t give an exact timeframe for the smartphones, but if there's any truth in the rumors of the Galaxy S III being delayed, maybe we'll see the chipset debut on the third generation flagship droid from Samsung.
