Samsung could we? Now that Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy S III with its quad-core Exynos 1.4 GHz processor we decided to run a quick benchmark just for comparison sakes. Once we get our paws on it longer we'll have some in depth results but for now check out the results below.
Samsung Galaxy S III is here. We've waited through all the leaks and all the details have finally been revealed. After the excitement calms down you'll be wondering what your next phone should be. The Galaxy S III, or maybe something like the HTC One X. We have pictures and hands-on video below to help you make up your mind on what superphone is right for you.
HTC One X, which gets a dual-core Snapdragon S4 on AT&T instead of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 found on the international version. Now a Samsung source has indicated a similar situation for the Galaxy S III. The Korea Times reports that an unnamed Samsung executive claimed that while the European version of the Galaxy S III will get the Exynos 4 Quad, US versions of the phone will go with a Qualcomm processor instead.
Samsung's "next Galaxy" event, more and more information is coming to light about the Galaxy S III - if that's even what it's going to be called. The latest tidbit comes from Samsung itself: they've announced that the upcoming phone will feature the Exynos 4 Quad, as previously rumored. This clashes with benchmarks for a phone labelled the Galaxy S III posted to the AnTuTu database earlier today, claiming that the phone used a dual-core Exynos architecture.
NVIDIA regarding their plans for now, and for the future. With the quad-core Tegra 3 processor already taking the world by storm the next step is Tegra 3 with 4G LTE integration. Currently folks like AT&T have changed to Qualcomm in order to support LTE and today's NVIDIA roadmap shows they won't have an answer to that until Q4 or later.
Optimus 4X HD you get an impressive 4.7" display and a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. We've covered it plenty and even have hands-on coverage below but today its been spotted out in the wild, and dressed in white. Not only that but the leak from ePrice also compares it to the new HTC One X, also a white Tegra 3 powered smartphone.
Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 at Mobile World Congress, it was met with a resounding yawn. Aside from Ice Cream Sandwich, a MicroSD card slot and a slightly redesigned exterior, it was basically identical to the previous generation. But according to German site NetbookNews, the tablet has been delayed in order to get a more substantial upgrade: a quad-core Exynos processor. That would be a major win for anyone wanting some substantial performance gains over last year's Galaxy Tab 10.1, and may be enough to warrant a second look from those dazzled by the Tegra and Snapdragon processors on other tablets.
NVIDIA, Qualcomm, or Texas Instruments but they've been around plenty long and are ready to aim for higher standards in 2012. Rockchip processors have been found in multiple chinese, or cheaper Android tablets as of late but in 2012 they are set to release a new improved Cortex A9 dual-core, and follow it with their own quad-core come Q3.
we reported the Galaxy Tab 2 with Android 4.0 ICS was delayed until late April although no reason was released. Today we are now hearing the Galaxy Note 10.1 has also been delayed, but with good reason. The delay is because it will be receiving a quad-core instead.
NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core powered HTC One X, and then the equally impressive One S with the dual-core Qualcomm S4 Krait processor. We've reviewed them both here at Android Community and will link to them below, but what we were impressed with (among many things) was the battery life and conservation.
