[* black] Lurking deep within the phone, the [guide|2204|A4 processor], manufactured by Samsung, is the centralized unit that provides the iPhone 4 with the much needed computing power.
[* black] Replacing the Samsung S5PC100 ARM A8 600 MHz CPU used in the 3GS, the new iPhone uses the ARM Cortex A8 core, much like its bigger sibling, the [guide|2183|iPad]. The iPad's A4 is clocked at 1 Ghz.
[* icon_note] The new Samsung Wave S8500 smartphone [http://www.techeye.net/chips/samsung-wave-s8500-has-same-processor-as-ipad|uses the same Cortex A8 core]! Not to mention that Samsung's flagship smartphone which is the Samsung Galaxy S II sport a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU. That's more that twice the computing power of the iPhone 4.
[* black] Just to the left of the A4 package, the AGD1 is the new 3 axis gyroscope that we believe is designed and manufactured by ST Micro for Apple. The package marks on this device do not appear to be the currently available commercial part, L3G4200D. The commercial version of this gyroscope is yet to be released — Apple got first dibs on it.
