Linus Valleij (ST-Ericsson) and Peter De Schrijver (Nvidia) talk about what they are doing at Linaro Connect 2013.
ST-Ericsson launches their new 3GHz NovaThor L8580 processor based on the FD-SOI process technology, to minimize power consumption and increase the performance of the ARM Cortex-A9 processor. ST-Ericsson claims 50% lower power consumption, 35% faster CPU and a 20% faster GPU and multimedia accelerator. You can read more about the ST-Ericsson L8580 in the press release
and you can watch the official videos:

Check back for my extensive video coverage of all the huge MWC news here on http://ARMdevices.net from February 24-28th.
There’s a new dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 3G TD-SCDMA Android ICS phone on the Chinese market to be sold at around $200 (1299RMB) starting mid-july on Lenovo’s Chinese website and China Mobile retail stores all over China. In addition to the Nova A9500, ST-Ericsson CG2900 and CW1100 connectivity solutions were also selected by Lenovo enabling GPS, Bluetooth, FM and Wi-Fi features. Maybe the screen size is 4.5″ IPS, is it a qHD resolution 4.5″ IPS screen? Let me know in the comments if you know more specs about this phone.
This could be a big deal if Lenovo and China Mobile plan to mass manufacture and mass sell this dual-core phone at sub-$200 price points all over China. That can help the ST-Ericsson A9500 platform reach a good position as a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 solution for affordable Chinese Android smartphones, ready to compete with the upcoming dual-core MediaTek MT6577 platform.
