Future Samsung devices will pack house-made CPUs, 560ppi displays  - read the full text Samsung’s mobile devices will feature house-made CPU core and displays with 560ppi in the near future. The word arrived during today's conference call, where the company’s executive team spoke about what lies ahead. The move of CPU core production in house will be a particularly...

 

Sort by:

I think this is kinda unnecessary with bigger screens and/or higher ppi but its always good to see technology moving forward. The 64bit thing is also kinda unnecessary/useless as of now, but still im glad the development is moving forward. We have come to a point where better hardware is not necessary for better experience, so it matters less and less for every year now.

Apple knew for some time that Samsung is working on a 64 bit CPU so Apple copied Samsung's idea of making a 64 bit CPU that's how Apple come up with a 64 bit dual-core CPU since developing a 64 bit dual-core CPU takes considerably less than developing a quad or octa core 64 bit CPU. So yeah Apple copied Samsung's idea of making a 64 bit CPU this time too.

Me and my research team suggest using the following resolutions for maximum performance and cheaper devices.
200+ ppi is enough.

3" - 4.5" 800x480
4.5" - 5.5" 960x540
5.5" - 7" 1280x720
7" - 11" 1920x1080
11" - 14" 2560x1440
14" - ... 3840x2160

ok what exactly are you gonna do with a 560ppi display? the only thing it will do more than a fhd is stress the gpu... it's like oems are trying to find use for their snapdragons 800 and a way to sell us in 2015 a 16-core 64bit arm v8 wich will be faster than a core i5 but there will be no use for it.

and still using pentile display, which decrease the real PPI up to 66%

Not gonna be too lengthy. If Samsung plans to tighten the upcoming Exynos 64 bit strategy up in a "closed" manner then they'll have to pull ALL the stops Apple style the way they did w/ their A7 (disclaimer:- I'm an Apple critic but I credit where its due). Prob is you'll need the sort of dev discipline that Apple has and judging from what I'm getting and seeing from Samsung's Android fw rollouts suffice to say it's not on par. Which will be impossible because the top end Exynos 64 will be limited to selected flagships (plural) and this isn't some 3 horse iDevice race so that's that. Secondly if it's gonna be open instead, then Samsung shouldn't repeat past and current Exynos mistakes. Document EVERYTHING and I mean everything for external devs to look at or GTFO. We'll need every integration (GPU+radios (LTE-A etc)+peripherals) on the table the way Qualcomm does w/ its Snapdragon line, not just fancier vid res scale ups.

i would say this is completely useless..we have been using 720p screens on our 15 inch laptops(of course not those alienwares n mac airs)and we have no complaints..samsung or rather android is out of ideas..

We'll do fine w/ 720p but since OEMs now did a fine job of marketing that excuse to keep RRPs at bay, most spec heads now just can't fathom anything less.

a 4k 40" tv is only about 100ppi so why do we need 560ppi?

Honestly guys, on cellphones with screens no larger than 6", do we REALLY need more than 1080p?
I mean come on, I only just recently bought a 1080p 24" monitor for my PC, so why on earth would I want more resolution on my cellphone?

I would prefer to read that they would do some kind of super battery, smaller and more powerful or some kind of battery saving screen.
I have a 2011 smartphone and I am pretty much happy with screen resolution and processing power what I would appreciate would be more battery with no extra weight or size.
I need a mobile to give me freedom not to strand me like an anchor.

its just that you CANT use 4gb of ram without 64bit not that 64bit is useless without 4gb ram
