It has been a while since we last spoke about the next generation Samsung Galaxy Tab device, but now we have more details on the next tablet from Samsung and a all but official confirmation that it will carry an Nvidia Tegra 2 chip as it’s main processor.
As reported from Engadget, it has just been revealed that Samsung has placed an order for a considerable amount of Tegra 2 chips, which will be delivered to them in the early part of 2011, presumably for tablet devices and also their future lineup of smartphones.
The information has come from Citigroup’s Glen Yeung, who has also said that Samsung are using Tegra 2 chips as a ‘reference design’ for the upcoming Android OS Honeycomb, which we still don’t know if it will be version 2.4 or 3.0 as previously suggested.
Either way, the next Samsung Galaxy Tab device is in good hands if the dual-core Tegra 2 chip definitely make’s it’s way into Samsung’s plans – don’t forget that the LG Optimus 2X is the first smartphone to feature the new technology.
What are your thoughts on this? Would you like to see a Tegra 2 chip in the next Galaxy Tab, or do you have better suggestions for Samsung?
