The only things that are coming, however are more stupid games, useless applications, power hungry OSes, bigger dimensions, cheaper plastics, and worsening sound quality.
I'd say more digital zombies and geekified teens, unaware of anything beyond their smartphone are also the disasters of 2012 that are coming. :LOL
Laurynas, 18 Apr 2011Maybe after a year or so, here will be a new features which will requires power of 2GHz dual-c... morething is, today there is NO feature that requires all the muscle of even today's top smartphones. (not even half) except for them benchmarking apps, but thatz for show
Who knows maybe in the near future SAMSUNG or any other manufacturer will bring us a new more capacious batteries.
So, please stop crying and interpretating about a batteries, because this topic is not about them, it is about a new 2GHz dual-core CPU. We even doesn't know, MAYBE this CPU will be extremely economical...
Manufacturers are not so stupid, they also think about a CPU heat and I think that they surely has solution for it.
It's good, like laptops replaced desktops, now phones will replace laptops.
I dont know why everybody is cursing it.
As far as functionality is concerned you can run Windows 7(By Hacking) like a charm on a 2GHz processor, enough ram is already available.
For battery issues, they are not fools, they are fabricating a low power chip like 1GHz dual core otherwise they would have used any other Intel like Atom.
Do we really need 2Ghz Cpu...?Smartphone will be the same as laptop but in smaller size...Hmmm..Just accept the future :)
Just imagine how long a 1500 or 1900 mAh battery they now put in because of these monstrous CPUs, would have lasted if people didn't buy this gigahertz nonsence... Instead you get hot, thin, slippery to hold big screens (no design at all), that last for 30 minutes :LOL
So, 2 GHz, what? Cool for 12 year old kids that get excited so easily, just a nuisance for grown up people.
Not to mention these touchscreens have already become so boring and obtrusive, it's unbearable. Classic hardware keys are so much better.

Don't be fool, your smartphone have to be good and usef... moreYou have to be blind if you believe that there is no advancement in functionality in Android where this CPU would most likely be used. Btw, Nokia does the same thing with their phones. Remember how they kept pushing the N series one after another around 2007-2008? Nokia is no different from Samsung except that Nokia is falling behind these days and you don't have to be a hater to see that. I used to troll Android news and praise Nokia but it's time to get real. I like Nokia but I applaud Android on what they have accomplished in just 3 years.

Anonymous, 18 Apr 2011I must admit that this news makes my N8 appear outdated in just a year into my 2 year contract... moreThat's what Samsung want you to think. Don't be fool, your smartphone have to be good and useful for you and that's all, all this processing power is only for impress people and probably will bring no better functionality. The only thing Samsung is doing is trying to make their new Galaxy SII outdated even before the official release.
Laurynas, 18 Apr 2011"REAL smartphone evolution should bring new functionality, not only increasing the number... moreYou don't need all this processing power to bring new functionality, there's alot of things you can do with 1Ghz or even less CPU. They should take advantage of new technology to decrease battery consumption, not only using it to increasing the numbers to sell phones for fool people. What you will do with all this processing power? Watch 1080p videos on Youtube direct from the web browser on a 4" screen or so? Oh, so amazing.
I must admit that this news makes my N8 appear outdated in just a year into my 2 year contract. Samsung is cranking hard on breakthroughs.
Anonymous, 18 Apr 2011In 2015 I might be using a 7 mm thick smartphone powered by 8 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5 TB ... moreYeah it's sad how things are going. We are forced to become digital zombies. The only way to "get our life back" is maybe to start change our phones and all other gadgets less frequently - 3 or maybe 4, even 5 years. That's how manufacturers will have to focus on quality, not numbers
dkvc, 18 Apr 2011"Lame specs"? So that's all you care for: specs?
Yeah, you are right, there are peo... more"REAL smartphone evolution should bring new functionality, not only increasing the numbers..."
Without increasing numbers, ther won't be new features or new functionaity.
LoL this is just madness...I like they think everyone need this kind of power.
GET REA, better go and buy an Netbook or UMPC, but for phones is a nono..
Or maybe they going to make a 10000mAH batteries for this thing, and just last 3 hours, and they wil includes in the package all kinds of AC cables for charge, or maybe a little nuclear power plant/solar power plan for get satisfy this power-hunger gadget.
For other hand Nokia with 600 Mhz stills getting too much battery for spare, even actual android last around 2 days...hmmm not goo getting this king of "mobility" power.
