Samsung may be already working on a 2 GHz dual-core Exynos processor
If you think that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II will be one beast of a smartphone, just wait until you see what may be coming down the road in the near future. According to a high-ranked company executive, Samsung is already developing a dual-core processor for smartphones that will run at the astonishing 2 GHz and will even rival today's desktop-grade PCs in terms of raw power. If such a chip becomes reality and does eventually land inside of a handset, it will definitely pack enough computing power to easily outrun every single smartphone processor that we know today. Demanding tasks such as 1080p video recording and rendering complex graphics may be handled with ease by Samsung's future processor.

The same Samsung official also mentioned that the said 2 GHz processor is expected to debut in one of the company's future smartphones by the end of 2012 and will most probably join the Exynos family of mobile CPUs. What is also worth noting is that Samsung might sell the chip to other manufacturers as well, though a wholesale price is probably too early to announce at this time. However, it is still too early to get excited about all this since Samsung's 2 GHz processor is nothing more than a blueprint for now. There are probably a ton of issues such as heat dissipation and battery life that will need to be tackled before using the chip in a smartphone becomes feasible.

I really hope the battery tech is growing at a similar pace! Because or else, it'll be such a shame to have these beautiful fast machine that die before you know it!

I would rather see more cores than higher speeds. The cores will at least help the battery life a bit while higher speeds will just drain the battery faster.

We can replace standard desk top towers with our phones ? and their can be two clocks 1.2 when not used as desktop and full power when used as desktop. this way you can plug it in the wall or have it on a charging pad when used as a desktop, so you battery doesn't suffer? goodbye desktop hello smartphone :)

Which is why Motorola's laptop dock was such an innovative idea, one which I hope to become more affordable and simply feasible in the future.

Lol, so it goes a little something like this:

Samsung: Oh, wait, wait, Apple wants something, Motorola. What's that? Shout louder, we can't hear you, we're too far ahead! Slow down or you'll sue? Lol, you be trippin, man! Go home if you can't keep up! I mean, everyone else is up here with us-LG, HTC, Sony Ericcson, Dell, HP... hell, even Blackberry's catching up to you! That boy must be losin' some WEIGHT! He's throwin' away the Crackerjacks, boys!"
