Samsung has announced today that they have two pieces of hardware that can be fitted into future smartphones which should make all of us very happy Android users.
First off, they have made a development on their Exynos chip, the same kind that can be found in most of the new Galaxy SII devices. The Exynos 4212 uses a 32nm low-power process that allows it to be clocked at 1.5GHz but make it 30 percent more power efficient than it was before. Android users across the board can rejoice since battery life is a constant struggle with dual-core phones.
Not to stop there though, they announced today that they have a new 16MP image sensor that is designed specifically for smart devices. The sensor allows for native 16:9 video capture at 8.3MPs at an astounding 60 frames per second. Most phones out now can only shoot 30fps, maximum.
Both of these new hardware pieces are available to companies now, so hopefully we can see them near the holiday season of this year or early even next year.
