Samsung Exynos 5250 spotted on a mysterious Samsung device

Once upon a time, smart phones with processors clocked in at 412 MHz was a great thing. The first Apple iPhone, which brought revolution to the smart phone industry, was running on a 412 MHz processor. And the BlackBerry Bold 9000, which was also a very popular smart phone, was running on a 624 MHz processor. But now, even very basic Android smart phones have at least an 800 MHz processor under the hood. And if you consider today’s high end smart phones, Android smart phones that is, there are 1.6 GHz quad core processors, which can easily be compared to some of the entry level netbook or notebook processors.

With the technology growing so rapidly, we should not be shocked to see more and more such processors beginning to show up. And today, we are going to discuss briefly the Samsung Exynos 5250. Earlier this year, back in March, we saw or heard about the awesome processor. The Samsung Exynos 5250 is going to be an awesome mobile processor which is going to be clocked in at 2 GHz, that is going to be the most powerful processor in the mobile industry to date. The processor is going to be a dual core processor with two Cortex A 15 chips inside it. This is going to be faster than any quad core chip present in the market today. And in the beginning of the year, it was also told that this processor will be able to work with displays with resolution up to 2560 x 1600 pixels. Today, Phone Arena writes:

What got us thinking about the Samsung Exynos 5250 is a mysterious Samsung Android device that recently was spotted at GL Benchmark with the Exynos 5250 doing the heavy lifting. Considering that this will probably be the fastest chip on an Android model when launched on a device, it behooved us to take a long look at the mystery device which does have a model number of GT-B9150. According to SamMobile, the “B” on the mode number indicates a physical QWERTY keyboard. The 672 x 1280 resolution of the device could also indicate that there is a physical keyboard on the unit if it is a phone, or the resolution could just indicate that this is a tablet. Android 4.1 is powering the device either way.
