Thanks to the new manufacturing process, the new Samsung Exynos 4212 promisses up 50 percent higher 3D graphics performance and up to 30 percent higher power efficiency.

In addition to the new Exynos 4212 chip, Samsung also rolled out a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor for smartphones as well as a 1.2-megapixel one for front-facing cameras that has 720p HD 30fps support.

The Exynos 4212 was said to be sampling in Q4 but recent announcements of 1.5GHz clocked Galaxy S II HD LTE and Galaxy S II LTE are most likely first smartphones with this chip. The CMOS sensors are scheduled to ship from Novemeber.
