Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd has expanded its Exynos product range with the introduction of the Exynos 4212, a dual core ARM Cortex-A9 application processor. The device enables mobile device systems architects to advance user-experience and energy-efficient requirements of smartphones and tablets, the company stated.

"As innovative technologies appear on the mobile landscape, the market continues to embrace further developments and performance acceleration in mobile computing," noted Seh-Woong Jeong, executive VP of System LSI sales and marketing, Samsung.

Samsung designed the Exynos 4212 on its 32nm low-power HKMG logic process technology that offers a competitive, cutting-edge platform with twice the logic density and 30 percent lower power-level from the previous process generation, claimed the company.

In addition to the 25 percent increase in processing power, the new processor features an enhanced graphics processing unit (GPU) that is capable of delivering 50 percent higher 3D graphics performance against the previous technology, added Samsung.

The Exynos 4212 incorporates a rich portfolio of advanced codec accelerators that support digital still images, video recording and playback at 1080p full-HD resolution, an image signal processor and an on-chip HDMI 1.4 interface.

Samsung's Exynos 4212 application processor will begin sampling to select customers in 4Q11.
