An unnamed Samsung exec hinted to the Korea Times that its upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S III, will include a next-gen quad-core Exynos chip that will incorporate LTE and WCDMA radios. Of course, such a revelation shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise since both its predecessors were built around home grown silicon… at least originally. According to the source, Sammy is trying to become more self reliant and distance itself from Qualcomm which has provided single-chip solutions for a number of the manufacturer’s high-end handsets. The new AP appears to be the 32nm slab of [...]
After that March 10th mishap, Samsung reaffirmed to us that it’d deliver Android 4.0 for its GT-I9100 Galaxy S II when it was darn good and ready — well folks, the company appears ready. It’s just announced both via Facebook and Twitter that the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade that so many have lusted after is now available and will begin its rollout to users in Poland, Hungary, Sweden and Korea today, and will move onto other markets from there — subject to carrier requirements, of course. Better yet, Samsung has affirmed that its Android 4.0 update for the Galaxy Note, Galaxy [...]
According to bloomberg sources, the next generation iPad, iPad 3 would be integrated with high-definition screen, a faster quad-core processor and compatible with fourth-generation LTE wireless networks.
The iPad 3 production will ramp up through Apple‘s Asian manufacturing partners this month to reach the full volume in February whereas the iPad 3 launch is expected in March 2012.
Today is a busy day for Nexus Prime – it’s been all over the news more than twice. Just hours earlier, we told you about a ‘trusted source’ who told BGR the phone’s key specifications. Well, they may turn out to be completely and utterly wrong.
We were contacted by a tipster from inside Google, who claims to be familiar with the next Nexus phone and he basically put the previously speculated specs to sleep. As usual, tips like these are to be taken with a pinch of salt, but for now we’re buying what this guy’s selling. What you are about to read is quite [...]
It may not be the biggest phone reveal coming in the next 24 hours, but leaked details had already piqued our interest in LG’s next big thing. The Optimus LTE’s screen rivals Apple’s Retina Display at 326ppi and that high-definition sharpness is slathered on a 4.5-inch AH-IPS display. The sizable 1830mAh battery should be enough to keep the phone ticking over despite these high-end specs, which include a confirmed 1.5GHz dual-core CPU and eight megapixel camera. Will we get to see it on these shores? We’re not sure of its travel itinerary after it reaches Korea, but we’d [...]
Samsung’s just announced the newest and fastest version of its Exynos mobile processor. The 4212 is a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 clocked to 1.5GHz, built using a 32mn process that makes it 30 percent more efficient and 25 percent faster than the 4210. Last year’s model was capable of many impressive feats, but its 3D abilities were hampered by the limits imposed by its HDMI 1.3 controller. The new boy gets version 1.4 and hence the freedom to run stereoscopic imagery at an impressive 70fps. The chips will be available in Q4 of this year, but only to “select customers” who [...]
Mobile device in 2012
Technical shift from HSPA to LTE
HSPA networks are increasing all over the world.
HSPA-compatible devices have increased to 805 items
Ericsson’s HSPA module for embedded use
Ericsson AB of Sweden revealed its efforts in the mobile broadband market at a press conference Nov 6, 2008.
In the area of mobile communications, innovative technologies such as “HSPA evolution,” which is the successor to HSPA, and “LTE (long term evolution),” which features high-speed communications of more than 100Mbps, are drawing interest. For both [...]
Samsung has shown off a N150 netbook with Long Term Evolution (LTE) at Mobile World Congress, with a chip designed in-house allowing a more portable offering with this next generation mobile technology.
LTE is causing much excitement, offering what is widely becoming called 4G connectivity for mobile devices, and Samsung is keen to be at the forefont of the technology.
To that end they have designed an LTE chipset called Kalmia, which has been integrated into the N150, a netbook that currently sports 3G and Wi-Fi versions and will only get the LTE technology ‘according to service schedule [...]
