In spite of the huge success and sales figures achieved by the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Korean smartphone manufacturer still has plans to unveil the Samsung Galaxy S5 in the beginning of the year 2014. Reports confirm that Samsung will be ready with the Exynos 5 chipset for the Galaxy S5.
There have already been a number of reports which said that Samsung’s new Exynos 6 chipset is in the final stages of development. The Samsung Exynos 6 chipset is expected to be the first true octa-core processor from the company that will turn the tables for Samsung. Korean media said that the chipset is almost ready and stated that the company is ‘almost done.’
It seems that Samsung has finally managed to get over the most complex tasks of the development process. The company is now working on the technical and logistics part after which the Exynos 6 chipset will be introduced to the world. Of course, the chipset will come inside the Samsung Galaxy S5 that is expected to be one of the first few 64-bit Android smartphones.
By the way, if you are wondering why the Exynos 6 chipset is so important, then we have to compare it with the current Exynos 5 chipset. The Samsung Exynos 6 chipset is expected to have 8 processors out of which all 8 will run at the same time, hence the term ‘true octa-core.’ The chipset will run twice as fast as the Exynos 5 and will consume half the power, cool isn’t it?
The reports from Korean media also suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will indeed be the first ever smartphone to be powered by this new chipset. The Exynos 6 chipset is said to use a 14nm architecture and will have support for 64-bit processing. This next generation Exynos 6 chipset will be based on ARM’s big.LITTLE octa-core configuration with Cortex-A53/A57 cores. So if power is what you love, then you are going to go crazy with the Galaxy S5’s speed and performance.
By the way, the Exynos 6 chipset is not the only mind-blowing feature that we are expecting from the new Galaxy S5. Samsung has plans to add a lot more cool and interesting features to the Samsung Galaxy S5 that will make the device stand out from the crowd. Among the rumored features, there is the eye-scanning sensor and a 16MP primary camera.
