Rockchip and ARM have announced the new Rockchip RK30xx series at Mobile World Congress. Expect full mass production to happen around May 2012, with samples being shipped around right now. Check back on my blog in the coming weeks and months for many affordable tablets, smartphones and Set-top-boxes featuring this new up to 1.4Ghz Dual-core 40nm Rockchip processor. The SoC price is just $15 for this dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 system!
3.3″ HVGA, 800Mhz, possibly the new cheapest Samsung Android smartphone.
4″ WVGA Super AMOLED, 1.5Ghz Dual-core processor. This is a mid-range smartphone for the T-Mobile USA network.
3.65″ HVGA cheap Samsung phone, maybe $99.
New cheap Samsung smartphone.
This is the new high-end quad-core LG smartphone.
Lightbox is an app and a website for communities of photography enthusiasts.
LG Optimus L7 may become a very very popular phone if priced right. This one has a 4.3″ WVGA screen, and runs on the new Qualcomm MSM7227A ARM Cortex-A5 processor at 1Ghz. The performance is above that of an ARM Cortex-A8 yet the power consumption and price is lower! My guess is LG may suggest a $199 retail price on this one with no contracts required!
Possibly a new $149 (this price is my guess) super affordable yet stylish phone with a 4″ HVGA screen and the low cost high performance Qualcomm MSM7225A processor.
Likely a sub-$99 Android phone from LG based on the new low cost high-performance Qualcomm MSM7225A ARM Cortex-A5 processor.
