Samsung Galaxy S Advance official: Android mid-ranger with two CPU cores
posted by Daniel P. / Jan 30, 2012, 5:13 AM
handsets like the HTC Z710t usually have this chipset specifically because it supports China Mobile's TD-SCDMA network. NovaThor iterations also support HSPA+ networks as well, and the Galaxy S Advance is listed with 14.4Mbps HSDPA radio, so we can very well see it in Europe as well.
There is a 5MP rear camera with LED flash and 720p video recording, as well as a 1.3MP front cam - we don't know what's with Samsung, but the Galaxy R also has a dual-core processor, yet records "only" 720p video. ST-Ericsson lists on its site a NovaThor U5500 dual-core chipset, which has a 14.4Mbps modem integrated with up to 720p video recording, so that's what we might have in the Galaxy S Advance.
The rest of the specs are Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 768MB of RAM, 8 or 16GB of internal memory, and DivX/Xvid video codec support right out of the box. Not a bad configuration with a dual-core chipset, but we will spare final judgment until we get our hands on one, and put it through its paces.

Its a sign of the power and success of android smartphones that even mid tier handsets now have dual core.

If you read the reports carefully, you'll realise that Nokia made no LOSS from it's smartphone & feature phone segment, they only made about 30% less profit than last year, unlike HTC, Sony Ericsson & LG that made losses in their phone segments. So you read the financial reports wrong! Symbian saved the day for Nokia, Elop knows the strenght of Symbian, but he's trying to undermine it, if Nokia puts much commitment into Symbian, they'll be able to go back to where they were before Elop became C.E.O.

If this is a mid-range Android device, then what are phones like the Evo/T-Bolt, Galaxy S, and Droid X considered? All the devices I listed have less RAM, only a single-core processor clocked at 1Ghz, and screens from 4-4.3in with the same resolution; which makes them lower spec wise than the Galaxy S Advance.
