The new chip that will be used in smartphones and tablets is 30 percent more power efficient, thanks to its process.
Moreover, the Exynos 4212’s GPU is now capable to deliver 50 percent higher 3D graphics and comes with a support for advanced codec accelerators for images, 1080p HD video recording and playback and HDMI 1.4 support.
