This 28 nm chipset has 8 cores that can run up to 2GHz each (!) offering impressive specs and multitasking support. The SoC has a quad core on board GPU, it supports 4K media video playback and has also the ability to control in real-time the heat signature of the SoC and its energy consumption.
It will also pack an improved video decoder that supports ClearMotion technology that can alter 24/30 fps content into 60fps along with a multi-mode modem in conjunction with WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth, GPS, Radio and Miracast support. It will also support 16MPixel cameras and 1080p displays. The first Android smartphones that will use this SoC will run on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean but soon (by 2014) we will see more running on Android 4.4 KitKat.
