GSMArena are showing their ignorance here. Developers shouldn't have to care about the first - both are using the exact same ARMv7 instruction set. I doubt Samsung has made any major changes to the upper level software stack either.

"We guess developers won't be too happy that they have to support yet another chipset for the Galaxy S II apps"

WHAAT? Both - Exynos and OMAP are ARM V7 compatible processors... there's nothing for devs. to do to support those two chips!

Why?

Also, fragmentation is not a problem, because this is not the first phone with sgx540

Mali 400 is a sad GPU compared to PowerVr540

Samsung is slowly loosing touch with reality by churning out all theses Galaxies without much differences between two successive ones. I wonder if they are aware of how much they are flooding the system with twins and triplets etc.... what the crap is this?

So that's Galaxy S II on Exynos, Tegra 2 and Texas Instruments.

Benchmark comparisons please, gsmarena

obviously for Chinese market, probably lowering the cost(still same cpu on the most recently released phone like Moto Razr), because too much demands for exynos

anyone remember Samsung Galaxy SL i9003?

Samsung i9003 also powered by TI OMAP processor, and look what happens to it now.
Samsung has completely forgot that such thing ever exist.
there is no support, no update, no nothing!

my advice, better not buy any Samsung handset with TI OMAP processor in it.
coz you will regret it.
