Samsung clarifies Galaxy A CPU clock speed issue

Samsung Galaxy A


Samsung began selling its Android 2.1 powered, Galaxy A (SHW-M100S) few days back in South Korea. While it has a powerful spec sheet, the retail version of Galaxy A came with some changes, including the CPU clock speed.

Samsung Electronics has confirmed that the Galaxy A sports TI’s OMAP3440 CPU but as compared to its stock clock speed of 800MHz they’ve underclocked it to 720MHz. Samsung deems the lower clock speed results in better power management without the actual loss of performance.

We’re not sure about it but the Galaxy A in this video doesn’t seem to lag with loss of 10% of clock speed.
