Samsung Galaxy S4 will have Exynos “Adonis” 28 nanometer quad-core ARM Cortex A15 CPU

It’s that time of the year.

Apple announced iPhone 5 almost 2 months ago. iPad mini is here. And Samsung Galaxy S3 has been around for months.

What the heck we’ll be speculating and reporting about next?

Samsung Galaxy S4, of course.

There were some stupid rumors before. But today one that actually sounds it might be true, came along.

About Samsung Exynos processor that will go inside Galaxy S4, codenamed “Adonis”. It’s a quad-core ARM15 CPU, which is based on 28nm manufacturing technology that Sammy is perfecting at the moment.

Samsung is running test batches of Exynos Adonis 28nm application processor right now, and has it scheduled for mass production in the first quarter of next year. To show it off  in Galaxy S4 flagship, which will be launched sometime next April or May.

I do hope the test production thing goes well and there won’t be delays we saw with Huawei’s D Quad running on proprietary K3V2 CPU.

Samsung has been at this semiconductor chip manufacturing business way longer than a Chinese rival, after all.

    Adonis is not a quad-core A15. Codenames mixed up somewhat here.
