Samsung has officially introduced its latest application processor, called Exynos 4 Quad. As its name suggests, the new processor is a quad-core one. It’s clocked at 1.4GHz, and is based on the ARM CORTEX A9 quad-core, being “the industry’s first 32nm quad-core application processor built on the High-k Metal Gate (HKMG) low-power process technology.”
The new Samsung CPU promises to offer “double the processing power at a 20 percent lower power bill over its predecessor, the 45nm process-based Exynos 4 Dual.”
The first smartphone to feature the Exynos 4 Quad is Samsung’s next Galaxy, which will be officially introduced on May 3. We’ve recently heard that Samsung may use a Qualcomm processor for the next Galaxy in the US, but it remains to be seen if that’s true.
Samsung says the Exynos 4 Quad is “also sampling to other major handset makers”, so we’ll likely find it in non-Samsung devices at some point. You can find out more about the new processor here, or in this press release.
