Samsung to use Intel Atom processor in new 10-inch tablet

Intel seems to have finally got hold of the bigger fish – Samsung. As per the latest benchmark results that have surfaced in GFXbench database, Samsung is using the Intel Atom Z2560 Clover Trail+ dual-core processor in its new 10-inch tablet.Samsung Gt-P5200

Carrying the model number GT-P5200, the tablet has been code-named Santos, the same codename that we had heard in the past associated with Samsung’s rumoured 10-inch tablet.

The benchmark listing also reveals the processor will be clocked at 1.6GHz and will come with PowerVR SGX 544 MP2 GPU. Other features of the tablet will include 10.1-inch WXGA (1280×800) display and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Apart from the GT-P5200 listing, a benchmark listing for GT-P5210 has also been spotted, which is going to be the Wi-Fi only version of the tablet.

Other details were not confirmed in these benchmark listings but a previous report had suggested that this tablet will come with 5MP rear camera and 16/ 32GB of internal storage.

Apart from the obvious tablet details leak, the presence of an Intel Atom processor in Samsung’s Android tablet is the more important news here. Intel has been struggling to get bigger manufacturers use its silicon in their Android products, however we recently saw Asus use Atom processor in Fonepad and now Samsung – seems like Intel’s smartphone/ tablet dream might finally come true.
