ARM launches Cortex A-72 platform, powering flagship smartphones in 2016

Mark Hachman | Feb. 4, 2015
ARM, the CPU company that powers virtually all smartphones, announces the Cortex A-72 chip design as well as a new graphics core.

The Oculus technology, when paired with a Samsung phone to create the Samsung Gear VR, creates a 110-degree field of view that simulates the Oculus virtual-reality environment. But even with a Galaxy phone attached, "you can still see pixels," he said. 

"We would like to see a 4K or even higher screen, and drive much more than a 60-Hz refresh rate," Gosalia said. "It needs all the power it can get. So we are very excited to get a lot of CPU power, and GPU power. We can't wait to get our hands on it."
