Samsung 2GHz dual-core handsets to launch this year

2GHz dual-core smartphones to double handset processing power within 12 months

Samsung has revealed it intends to release the world’s first 2GHz dual-core processor touting mobile phone by this time next year.

Just days before the company’s first dual-core handset, the Samsung Galaxy S II is scheduled to be released, Samsung has announced plans to further develop the emerging breed of dual-core smartphones with the hope of seeing handsets packing as much processing power as a laptop.

Packing the equivalent processing power of a single core 4GHz CPU, the mooted Samsung handset would mark a new era in mobile devices, just one year after LG officially unveiled the world’s first dual-core handset, the 1GHz dual-core LG Optimus 2X. Set to be released under the Samsung Exynos brand, it is yet to be seen what sort of drain the reported 2GHz dual-core CPUs would have on the minimal battery life of mobile devices.

Having been formerly unveiled with a 1GHz dual-core processor at February’s Mobile World Conference convention in Barcelona, Samsung recently announced it was to up the processing power of the Samsung Galaxy S II to a market leading 1.2GHz dual-core offering ahead of the device’s May 1st UK release date.

Do dual-core processors mark the future of mobile devices or are they simply the latest in a long line of passing trends? Share your thoughts on the matter via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
