The new chipset will also usher in a new generation of camera sensors with the chipset touted to have a 16 megapixel camera chip with a back illuminated sensor that allows for better low-light performance. The front camera will have a 1.2 MP sensor capable of capturing 720p at 30fps. According to GSMArena, the camera will have a 1/8.2 sensor with an ISO up to 1600. 


The Exynos 4212 chipset will have a 32nm process fabrication technology and will have 3D support, as well. The new Galaxy S II LTE and Galaxy S II HD LTE that is set to release in Korea soon, will have the Exynos chipsets with a CPU clock of 1.5GHz. Currently, the highest clocking rate is 1.4GHz by the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Tab 7.7, but with the new Exynos chipsets, that will soon be a thing of the past.
