Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, LG Star, LG Optimus 2X & LG B to Come with Nvidia Tegra 2

December 20, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The cushion offered by ARM architecture with regard to easier handling had, no doubt, left mobile device makers a lazy lot. Until now, though. The advent of the Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset is changing the way the manufacturers have been seeing things.

The arrival of the second-generation Nvidia Tegra CPU is increasingly being welcomed by makers of mobile devices, and among them is Samsung who has adopted the chipset for its Galaxy Tab 2.  Now that is encouraging stuff, ain’t it?

Besides the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2,  we expect the Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chipset to be incorporated into the LG Star and LG Optimus 2X. If that isn’t enough, we hear that Tegra 2 will be present under the upcoming the LG B Android smartphone’s hood too.

Samsung’s adoption of Tegra 2 might come as a surprise owing to the fact that the company was earlier said to be developing its own dual-core chip. Apart from Tegra 2, Samsung’s next edition of the Galaxy Tab might also have Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS.

Akin to what we have seen in Samsung’s Orion chip, the Tegra 2 is also made on a 45nm platform using a version of ARM’s Cortex-A9 dual-core processor design.

Look forward to the release of the next generation Samsung Galaxy Tab by the first half of 2011. And, that would be your chance to taste the Tegra 2 features too.
