Samsung Narrows The Gap With PCs: 2 GHz Dual-Core Smartphone by 2012


At the time when Smartphone makers are trying to throw competition to an edge, this news can have far better impact on such efforts. Just after 4 months when dual core processors were introduced for Smartphone, Samsung has tried to take big leap by announcing 2 GHz Dual-Core processor Smartphone. Indeed it’s a remarkable effort from the company who has just released the upgraded version of Samsung Galaxy S2 with 1 GHz Dual-core processor.

With such processor, Samsung has tried to narrow the gap between Smartphone and a desktop, especially when it comes to data processing. The 2 Ghz Dual-Core Smartphone is expected to launch by 2012 and will be loaded with many exponential features which need high processing capability.

“We are planning to release a 2 Ghz dual core CPU-equipped Smartphone by next year,” said a high-ranking official from the company. “This product will have the data processing capacities of a regular PC.” Samsung is still developing the dual core CPU to be used in the Smartphone. It is highly likely that it will be launched under the Exynos brand, a processor brand launched by the company in February.

Moving a step further, company is also planning to launch such processor as independent product which can also be sold to other mobile makers.

Again, in the wake os such news, the debate over the future of desktop computers has been resurfaced. Analysts feel that in the presence of extreme capable Smartphones which are equaling the processing speed of desktops and Tablets with Dual core processing speed, it’s very difficult for manufacturers to push the desktop computers to users. Now days people need mobility and instant accessibility with their gadgets which can’t be provided by desktop computers.

After the latest announcement of Samsung, it would be interesting to see the moves of other Smartphone manufacturers like LG, HTC or Sony.
