Yesterday Samsung announced that their latest tablet the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be running NVIDIA’s dual core Tegra 2 processor. However at the bottom of the press release we observed an interesting concluding point. The last line of the joint company press release states:
“ The companies are also partnering to bring a new Android-based super phone with a dual-core CPU to consumers, for never-before-seen experiences.”
Samsung normally uses their own processors in their smart phones and tablets called Exynos. However they are yet to launch a dual core Exynos chipset which could explain switching to Tegra 2 in order to get a dual core smart phone to market.
It’s only pure speculation at this point as to whether Samsung is moving to Tegra 2 in all smart phones in the future. None the less we are excited to what “never-before-seen experiences” the two companies create together.
Both Samsung and HTC are the only top tier smart phone makers who are yet to launch a dual core smart phone.
