Dialog Semiconductor plc(FWB: DLG), a provider of highly integrated power
management, audio and short range wireless technologies, announced today that
Samsung has adopted the company's power management and ultra low power audio
technology for a third global smartphone platform. Dialog's DA2083 power
management IC (PMIC) with integrated audio functionality is being used in the
new range of entry- to mid-level Samsung Galaxy Fame smartphone models,
GT-S6810, that are due to start shipping globally from Q1 2013.

Dialog's fully configurable, single chip DA2083 power management and low power
audio technology delivers significant board space savings, allows thinner
external inductive components to be used, while delivering performance
benefits to the Samsung design. The device integrates a total of over thirty
different power supply domains and analog functions on a single chip, which is
enabling Samsung to design a series of more power efficient and thinner
smartphones.

Dr Jalal Bagherli, CEO of Dialog said: 'We've continued to work closely with
Samsung and ensure our PMICs combine our most advanced, energy-efficient
technologies with best-in-class audio to enable a superior user experience.
This third smartphone platform win with Samsung is a powerful endorsement of
Dialog's technology and we're committed to furthering our relationship with
the addition of more platform wins in the future.'

The Galaxy Fame is powered by a 1GHz processor, runs Android 4.1.2 (Jelly
Bean), includes a 3.5-inch HVGA TFT touchscreen and is powered by a 1300mAh
battery. 3G, Wi-Fi and AGPS modes are also included. Several models and
regional variants of the smartphone platform are being made available.

Dialog already provided PMICs for the Samsung's S5368 and Galaxy Pocket S5300
smartphones.
