Samsung introduced the latest fruits of their labor in the form of a new Exynos System-on-chip (SOC) mobile processor built using a new 32nm process that is 30% more power efficient. The Exynos 4212 is a similar dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 just like their older model but this time clocked to a screaming 1.5GHz. However, where the Exynos 4212 really shines is in its GPU which is now capable of delivering 50% faster 3D graphics rendering, as well as the usual 1080p HD video recording/playback and HDMI 1.4 support.
Samsung will be supplying their new 4212 SOC to OEM’s in Q4 of this year and can be found in their own Galaxy S II LTE as well as the Galaxy S II HD. Word on the street is this could very well be the processor powering the upcoming Samsung Nexus Prime which will be unveiled this year at CTIA in October.
