The operating system has been tested on Google Chrome Samsung ARM chip Exynos 5250 and perhaps even on a new device called “Daisy.” Why should we care? Because there are currently only two notebooks with the Chrome OS, both with Intel Atom chip.
In addition, the fact that Samsung has expressed its intention to launch its first chip Exynos 5250 on high-end tablet, and only later on smartphones, getting an interesting combination for the mobile market. This could mean that Google intends to introduce a new rival in the mobile market, the operating system level, in addition to Android? Does not seem to make much sense, as a choice, but not be ruled out given the circumstances.
Mass production of Samsung Exynos 5250 chip is scheduled for the second quarter of 2012, will be based on ARM Cortex-A15 with two processing cores clocked at 2GHz and four GPU cores. Samsung is using technology to 32 nm. Apparently, also, the open source Chromium project refers to “tegra2_kaen”, suggesting that the Samsung chips are not the only ones being tested. What do you think of Chrome for your smartphone?
