31 May, 2013 Samsung

Samsung Electronics has chosen an Intel Corp processor to power a new version of one of its top-tier Android tablets, a source with knowledge of the plans told Reuters, in a major victory for the U.S. chipmaker, which is struggling to find its footing in the mobile market.

Under the agreement, Samsung Electronics will use Intel's Atom-branded processors in its Galaxy Tab3 tablets. The latest move is expected to pave the way for Intel to expand its presence in the rising mobile device market.

Intel has been improving the performance and energy efficiency of its "Atom" and "Core" processors and embracing Google Android, with the hope that it will convince more device makers to use its chips in their products.

Lee Hee-sung, country manager at Intel Korea, is ready to back the headquarters' drive for mobile processors as he hinted at launching a full-scale promotional campaign to push leading consumer electronics firms including LG Electronics to buy its Atom processors.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is expected to be unveiled at the 2013 Computex conference during the first week of June in Taiwan.
