Samsung, after mid-year announcements relating to a new shutter technology and flexible AMOLED screens, has been busy developing a series of new technologies for use in future mobile phone projects.
Announced at the Samsung Mobile Solutions Forum event in Taipei, the company revealed two new 1GHz processors based on the ARM CORTEX-A8 design. The S5PC110 has been designed for multimedia smartphones while its sister chip, the S5PV210, has been created to be integrated within future netbooks. Both chips include powerful 3D engines and an increased battery life and both chips should be out this December.
In addition, a new image sensor, rated at 5-megapixels, will provide built in cameras with auto-focus, Xenon flash and 1080 HD video capabilities. This chip will be on sale next January.
Finally, the company released details of a new single chip capacitive touchscreen controller that will enable manufacturers to produce even thinner mobile phones that should be out early next year.
"Samsung's Touch Embedded DDI technology achieves three significant advancements: reduced chip area, lower power consumption and superior cost competitiveness," declared Dr. Myunghee Lee, vice president of Samsung Electronics' DDI development team.
