Samsung announced the Galaxy Beam and Galaxy Ace 2 with dual-core CPU but wasn’t really forthcoming about what processor both were powered with. Now ST-Ericsson has confirmed that both Android devices use their NovaThor U8500 platform. Galaxy Beam has a 1GHz dual-core CPU whereas Galaxy Ace 2 features a dual-core clocked at 800MHz.
Samsung has used NovaThor platform in total of three devices, which also includes Galaxy S Advance.
Today we can confirm that two more Samsung GALAXY Android-powered smartphones – the GALAXY Beam and GALAXY Ace 2 – will be powered by NovaThor ModAp platforms. In February, we announced that the Samsung GALAXY S Advance was the first smartphone by Samsung to leverage the U8500 platform. And thanks to the U8500’s versatility and maturity, Samsung was able to bring other devices based on the same platform to market quickly.
