NVIDIA can now add Samsung to its list of partnerships in mobile phone manufacturing, which includes Motorola, LG and Mitac.
"Samsung has chosen the NVIDIA GoForce 2100 because of the outstanding imaging and camera functionality it delivers at extremely low energy levels," Samsung's vice president of product planning group, H.Woo Kim, said in a statement.
NVIDIA's GoForce 2100's media processor will provide the brains behind the SCH-M500, which will support up to 320 x 240 pixels in screen resolution. The SCH-M500 will be able to capture VGA images (640 x 480 pixels), record and playback motion JPEG videos and support accelerated graphics for gaming.
"As a leader in digital convergence technology, Samsung recognises the value in combining style, substance and advanced multimedia capabilities into a sleek, low power, visually appealing form-factor," said NVIDIA's marketing director for Asia Pacific, KB Ng.
Using NVIDIA's GoForce 2100 chip, the Samsung SCH-M500 is expected to be available mid-July in Korea. Samsung has not yet announced plans to release the SCH-M500 in Australia.
