Samsung Galaxy S3 To Adopt Exynos Rather Than Qualcomm, Nvidia

Samsung may finally get its own departments to source components exclusively from each other when it comes to chipsets rather than rely other rival semiconductor firms such as Qualcomm, TI, ST-Ericsson or Nvidia.

The Korean Times claims that the Galaxy S3 will come with a quad core Exynos which will come with LTE and WCDMA baseband technology much like Qualcomm's parts as a single integrated chip based on intel from an unnamed Samsung executive.

Samsung is said to use a 32nm node for the chip which will come with four Cortex-A9 cores (like the Exynos 4412) rather than Cortex-A15 ones (like the 5250).

The anonymous chap also says that the development of the chip is complete and that it is simply a matter of shipping them inside (tons of) smartphones.

The 4412 could well be the chip that ends up in the Samsung Galaxy S3 and it is clocked between 1.5GHz and 1.8GHz, far higher than the Nvidia Tegra 3.

Last month we revealed, courtesy of a Samsung insider, how entities within Samsung did not have an advantage (until now) when vying for business.

Other rumours that have surfaced lately regarding the Samsung Galaxy S3 include a May release date at a Samsung Unpacked event, a March release date, a 4.8-inch Full HD screen, a quad core processor (either a Tegra camera,3 or an Exynos 4412), up to 2GB RAM, a 2250mAh battery, a 12-megapixel camera and a ceramic case.
