Dual-core 2GHz Samsung Exnyos 5250 expected in just a few short months

Samsung has unveiled their latest System-on-chip (SoC) this week, trumpeting the arrival of the Exynos 5250, a dual-core 2GHz chipset.  Expected to be used in high-end tablets, the Samsung chips go into mass production in the second quarter of 2012.  At that rate we might expect to see these in future Galaxy Tabs and other tablets in the second half of the year.  We’d love to see these arrive in smartphones down the road and it wouldn’t surprise us if it actually happens.

As compared to today’s processors, the dual-core Exynos 5250 features 4X graphics performance over current Cortex-A9-based Application Processors.  Additional details include supports for stereoscopic 3D displays and display resolutions of up to WQXGA (2560×1600).

With CES, MWC, and CTIA breathing down our necks we might be able to see concept devices show up over the next few months.
