At the eighth annual Samsung Mobile Solutions Forum held at the Westin Taipei, Taiwan, Samsung previewed the Exynos 5250 applications processor, which is based on a dual-core implementation of the ARM Cortex-A15 processor running at 2GHz implemented in the company’s 32nm CMOS process technology. According to Samsung, the dual-core Cortex-A15 processor complex running at 2GHz is about twice as fast as a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor complex running at 1.5GHz, so there’s some architectural advantage there in addition to the uptick in clock speed. The Exynos 5250 also incorporates “the industry’s first” ultra-high resolution WQXGA (2560 * 1600) display subsystem. Sampling and mass production of the device is planned for 2Q 2012.
