A few years ago, we have been dreaming of powerful features of our cell phones. And today, the evolution of our communication handset is growing more powerful than what we could imagine.
Today we receive a report from Rachel King at ZDNet.com that Samsung promises a 2GHz dual core handset next year. The current processors in smartphones are evolving from 1GHz to 1.2 GHz dual-core, but the processors Samsung are promising are a big step up. It is thought the first Samsung handset to feature such a processor should be released towards the end of 2012.
The company is expected to not only produce the processors, but also sell them to other manufacturers. Devices with processors like these will further allow smartphones to close the gap to the desktop PC. With the news that the processors will be made available to other companies, we should see a whole host of devices using the technology next year.
As smartphones become more of a mobile computer and become more powerful, we are concern on how it is going to affect the battery life of the handset. Many users of handsets like the HTC Thunderbolt have been complaining about how long the battery lasts before needing another charge.
Power hungry consumers may have to make some sacrifices with things like battery life, if they want the latest and most powerful handset.
At this point, I think we have to deal further about this report before we can truly accept the big promise. A challenge for Samsung, isn’t it? Read more on this here.
