Quad-core phones? Old news. All the manufacturers are doing that now. How about a 48-core CPU for smartphones and tablets? Intel’s looking to shake up the mobile market and make that kind of processing power a reality within the next ten years.
Over the past several weeks of running the Samsung Chromebook with its Exynos 5 Dual SoC that is comprised of an ARM Cortex-A15 dual-core processor, I've grown quite fond of this latest ARM processor...

It appears Samsung has another SoC known as the Exynos 5210. As pictured above, Linux dev tools were committed to a smdk5210 at Free-electrons.com. Unfortunately we don’t have much to go on, but it very well could be a quad-core that features the same big.LITTLE technology that’s in the Exynos Octa-core 5410.
Phoronix: ARM Cortex-A15 Quad-Core Linux ODROID-XU Tests
When the first ARM Cortex-A15 SoCs started rolling out in devices I found the dual-core A15 performance to be crazy fast for ARM and still find the Cortex-A15 performance to be great for low-power devices.
For those of you who think that dual-core is so last year then have I story for you. The video we have here shows the TI dual-core OMAP 5 application processor for mobile devices outpacing the quad-core Tegra 3 processor from Nvidia. For those that don’t know the OMAP 5 sports ARM’s new and improved Cortex-A15 CPU design.
Amidst the rumors of Samsung working on the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S III and subsequent denials, one thing is certain. Somewhere in Samsung’s organization, work is underway on Samsung’s next flagship device.
With mobile phones and tablets getting more advanced every single day, so does the hardware that goes inside them. Mobile chip designer ARM and TSMC have managed to create the first 64-bit Cortex-A57 processor. Even more impressive, they did it utilizing 16nm technology developed by TSMC.
Today most tablets and smartphones on the market have dual core processors on them. But some of them have quad core processors like iphone 5 and Nexus 7. I know dual core has benefits but how does quad core help when you basically can only run one app at a time?
ZTE made a strong showing at Mobile World Congress. We already told you about the ZTE Era, which is their flagship quad-core Tegra 3 smartphone. They unveiled seven other Android smartphones and four tablets. They also showed Miflavor which is ZTE’s UI skin that will go on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
