Samsung Exynos processors are now heart and the soul of premium Galaxy series devices. In a move after Exynos 5410, Samsung is set to announce new Exynos 5 Octa next week. The Korean giant has tweeted about its upcoming chip through its Exynos Twitter account and teases by stating as, “a new Exynos 5 Octa is coming…”
Samsung Exynos 5 Octa chip is originally available on the latest Galaxy S4. The present chip is codenamed as Exynos 5410 and the upcoming chip is expected to named as Exynos 5420. The Exynos 5 Octa featuring an octa-core processing but it is not having a true octa-core processing unit as a quad-core Cortex-A15 processing unit is used for heavy usage while a quad-core Cortex-A7 is used to save the battery life. Therefore, all the eight cores are not designed to process simultaneously in the current Exynos 5 Octa chipset. The upcoming Exynos 5 Octa chipset is also likely to have a similar architecture with more clock-speed and enhanced graphic support.
However, Samsung has not even hinted about the devices based on new Exynos 5 Octa chip but some reports are suggesting the presence of the new Exynos 5 Octa chip in the Galaxy Note III. The Galaxy Note III rumoured to be official at IFA 2013, with having two variants in terms of processing, one would have Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset and the other one is now probably feature the new Exynos 5 Octa chipset.
We’ll of course cover more on the Exynos 5 Octa chip next week, so stay tuned.
