Well folks it didn't take long for Moto to fire something out into the bloggesphere seeing that leaks of the Dual Core LG Star and Samsung S have been getting a lot of "play time."
Android and Me has just confirmed this is in fact the Motorola Olympus. The Motorola Olympus is rumored to feature NVIDIA’s dual-core Tegra 2 processor, a 4.1-inch display, 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video record, front-facing camera, HDMI out, and is currently running Android 2.2 with Motoblur. We all know that Gingerbread is right around the corner so hopefully Motorola updates this phone to Android 2.3, but we can only hope.
It's said to be releasing around the end of January on AT&T with other carriers following. Yes VZW will get this handset and I do believe it will hit in February with you guessed it............LTE capabilities.
So there you have it. The Dual-Core line up of the Olympus, LG Star and Samsung S. Question is what device is in your future?
Key features of Nvidia's Tegra 2
Dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU — The world’s first mobile dual-core CPU for faster Web browsing, snappier response time, and overall better performance. The Cortex-A9 is the world’s first mobile CPU with out of order execution for more efficient processing, resulting in a better overall experience.
Ultra-low power (ULP) GeForce GPU — NVIDIA graphics technology architected for low-power applications enables an excellent visual experience while mobile. The ULP GeForce GPU delivers outstanding mobile 3D game playability and a visually engaging, highly-responsive 3D user interface.
1080p Video Playback Processor — Play back 1080p HD movies with your mobile device. Delivers smooth, full frame rate 1080p HD video playback and streaming HD Flash video playback without compromising battery life.
1080p Video Encode Processor — Runs video encode algorithms to deliver full 1080p HD video streams for video recording and conferencing capabilities.
Image Signal Processor (ISP) — Take sharp brilliant pictures with support for up to 12 MP cameras. The integrated image signal processor (ISP) includes proprietary algorithms that enable image and video stabilization, face tracking, advanced trick modes, light balance, edge enhancement, and noise reduction to deliver real-time photo enhancement capabilities.
Audio Processor — Handles signal audio processing to deliver over 140 hours of continuous 128kbps mp3 audio playback on a single battery charge.
ARM7 Processor — Supports system management functions and several proprietary battery life extending features.
High-Definition Digital Display Output — Tegra supports HDMI allowing you to connect to a full 1080p HDTV or other display and view your content on the big screen. 5.1 surround sound support fills your room with a theater-like experience.
OpenGL® ES 2.0 Optimizations and Support — Ensures robust compatibility and performance for OpenGL applications.
Global Power Management System — Numerous hardware monitors distributed across the Tegra architecture collect data on activity levels, frequency, temperature, and incoming request patterns. The data is used to determine the optimal operating condition to ensure that the processors are always running at the lowest possible power level while still delivering maximum performance when needed.
