The Samsung S3C2442B is the CPU of the Neo FreeRunner GTA02. It is based on an ARM920T core.

The datasheet for this is at this link.

One difference is that the CPU voltage limits are specified variably from 400MHz (1.5V) to 50MHz (1V) the current at these speeds is not mentioned. The FreeRunner includes a variant that can be clocked up to 500MHz, however a) current consumption is insane at this frequency and b) various other components can't cope with the peripheral clock at this speed. It is therefore safe to assume that the highest frequency for the Neo FreeRunner is 400MHz.
