Samsung wants to do smartphone by themselves

Somewhat like the middle child who always feels the need to prove himself, Samsung has set out to create its own smartphone chip and operating system. The yet to be created smartphone will be rocking their own unique OS, instead of the Symbian, WinMo, and Linux-based systems that they have used in the past.

This new solution will come complete with a “full frame built on hardware MPEG engine”, VoIP support, and plenty of love for mobile multimedia. The chipset involved, S3C3 460, will also be developed in house. It is a Java-enabled dual core microprocessor good for 3D accelerating, NAND flash boot loading, and MPEG4 encoding/decoding. I guess if you want to be a world’s first, you have to do it by yourself.
