This is big news, even if you don’t understand what’s going on (which would be strange). Texas Instruments, a major provide of the chips for smartphones (besides Qualcomm who produces the Snapdragon) has announced its newsest processor, which is dual-core, runs at a default speed of 1.5 GHz, has the name of OMAP4440, a 1.25x graphics performance increase, support for 1080p video and glasseses-free 3D, two 12-megapixel cameras in parallel setup (3D photos would be possible), and a PowerVR SGX540 GPU.
If you still don’t understand what you just read, then read this: it’s sort of like stuffing a Core i7 in your smartphone *brain explodes*.
Texas Instruments will begin shipping the new processor in the second half of 2011 to manufacturers, so actual handsets with this technology should launch around the last quarter of next year. We can wait, can’t we? Via: OMAP4 TI
