A 2GHz Smartphone by 2012 by Samsung

Smartphones are becoming ridiculously powerful. 

Samsung, which will soon release a 1.2GHz dual-core version of its Galaxy S smartphone, is not resting on its laurels. The company  promised we’d see a 2GHz Samsung smartphone by next year. Mashable cites a “high ranking Samsung official” who confirmed plans for a 2GHz mobile phone CPU during a conversation with the Maeli Business Newspaper.

"We are planning to release a 2GHz dual core CPU-equipped smartphone by next year. This product will have the data processing capacities of a regular PC," the official said.

Samsung is said to be considering selling the chips separately to third party manufacturers.
Samsung's 1.2GHz Galaxy S2 is set for a May launch in the United Kingdom. The North American release for this device has yet to be announced.
