Adding two more cores does not double the speed of the overall functionality, but yes it does do value addition to certain processing dependent applications like HD Video Editing, Image Processing etc.

I assume that these will be paired with android OS. Having a Galaxy phone and an iPad, I must say that the iPad is less frustrating at times than the Android. So even if they match in terms of processing power, they still need to tweak the OS to give you the seamless Apple experience. Of course my frustration with the phone could be due to the carrier as well...

@agk, I agree with you. Samsung products are very cost-effective compared to Apple products. So people who cant afford to buy Apple will opt for samsung products. Needs to be seen how HTC and LG will compete with Samsung products.

@Kiran_NSN they may not match with iPhone/iPad but they have definitely taken the lead in the smartphone market. Because of Samsung Nokia is struggling to make comeback.

@Sanjib Reportedly the Exynos 4210, a dual-core Cortex-A9 with Mali400 quad-core GPU implemented in 45-nm CMOS. Possibly the Exynos 4212, a dual-core Cortex-A9 with Mali400 quad-core, implemented in 32-nm HKMG CMOS. (previously Exynos 4210[11])

What processor was being used in Galaxy smartphones so far? After Exynos is used in their smartphones is Samsung going to get even better price/performance advantage over the others?

High performance galaxy phones, I'm not sure if they ever will be able to match iPhone/iPad experience.

Aquila has been on Samsung's roadmap for some time. On the other hand, a bit like modern cars, the power/performance imperative tends to make these things end up looking pretty much the same.

A Samsung spokesperson said they couldn't comment on the GPU inside the Exynos 4412 quad core, except to say "the performance is appropriate for both smartphones and tablets." Seems most likely it is Mali 4XX from ARM but if anybody knows different please chime in.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
