ARM has announced a new processor designed to be used in smartphones and tablets, the ARM Cortex A15 processor. It looks like the ARM Cortex A15 processor is considerably faster than the current A9 processor, it is reported to have around five times the power of existing SOCs.
The ARM Cortex™-A15 MPCore™ processor is highest-performance licensable processor the industry has ever seen. It delivers unprecedented processing capability, combined with low power consumption to enable compelling products in markets ranging from smartphones, tablets, mobile computing, high-end digital home, servers and wireless infrastructure. The unique combination of performance, functionality, and power-efficiency provided by the Cortex-A15 MPCore processor reinforces ARM’s clear leadership position in these high-value and high-volume application segments.
ARM has announced that they have already signed deals with Samsung and Sony, so we can expect to see these new faster processors in upcoming Android devices, maybe the next generation Samsung Galaxy S.
