Many people had hoped that the Nexus S will be equipped with a dual-core processor but sadly that did not turn out to be true. The Nexus S uses a 1 GHz SoC (Silicon-on-Chip) Hummingbird processor. The same processor is used across the different variants of the Galaxy S line-up. Now, an XDA member morfic has released a new kernel Trinity – for the Nexus S which overclocks the processor to 1.2GHz.
The developer of the kernel has also tweaked the voltages for a better battery life. However, this kernel is still a work in progress as the Bluetooth still does not work. The kernel is compatible only with Bionix NS1 custom ROM for the Nexus S.
The 1GHz processor inside the Nexus S is no slow-couch. However, I hope this kernel will satisfy the thirst of speed for all those people who were disappointed with the Hummingbird processor.
