it will be around 319 dollars. If the cheapest ipad mini was 800 bucks, this item will cost 750 bucks. They will continue to release products shortly after apple announces something, and continue to price their products just south of apples products. Awesome.
All this talk of faster processors makes me look back at what we've seen this year. Sony with its dual cores seem to handle Android well, WP8 on these new Lumias has dual core. Qualcomm even admitted that smartphones don't need quad core and that dual core works just fine.
Of course in tablet terms it is different, and faster means more future proof for smartphones (see Jelly Bean for the SgS2) but I wonder just how longer Google can keep up? Windows PCs last years with i3,i5,i7 first gen processors. Will we see Google and handset manufacturers run out of features to add?
Grishm, 26 Oct 2012Powerful beast yet ugly. As is the case with Samsung! The Frankenstein monster of tablets, lol. But look at the power!
lashton, 26 Oct 2012Also the back of the tablet looks really badly scratched and scuffedthat wont be a dealbreaker for me ,BUD.
exynos 5250 is very fast , no comparison to krait dual core.
the source itself said its faster than quad core krait. also MaliT604 is basically faster than adreno320 maybe even faster than 543mp4. interesting to see A6X gpu vs Mali
acording to ARM T604 is 5 Times more powerful than previous generation (400MP)
regs, 26 Oct 2012One Cortex A15 core is better than Krait just little but. But there are just two cores, so it ... moreThe krait also has GLONASS, DLNA, GPS, WiFI, bluertooth and memory controller all on the CPU die, which the exynos 5 series does not
Ok this is one seriously beefed up Tab!! Looks are subjective so wont comment on that. But performance wise, m sure this can handle anything that's thrown at it. Non expandable memory is a bit of a downer though.
iHATER, 26 Oct 2012wow exynos 5 chip along with mali T604 means upcoming flagship of samsung ie S4 n note 3 will ... moreI think once displays hit a sweet spot like cameras have done with 8mp being standard, then we'll see some real world benefits with these newer quad cores. Can they help with power management? Because Batteries are just not evolving fast enough.
One Cortex A15 core is better than Krait just little but. But there are just two cores, so it won't able compete anyhow with quadcore Krait.
GPU is still a subject for benchmarks. Could be faster than Adreno 320.

Don't know if you guys know this but that chipset with that Mali-T604 GPU is exceedingly deadly. Read about much earlier in the year. Its an ARM's new GPU. And logically there should be a Quad version of the CPU coming out later.
Its going absolutely crush everything with an iron fist the way the original EXYNOS chipset did. You'll probably see it in next year's Galaxy S4. It'll be a while before they catch up... Again..
