New Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor coming next week – maybe the Galaxy Note III will use it
Samsung has let the world know that it’s going to officially announce a new version of its Exynos 5 Octa mobile processor. Unfortunately, the company hasn’t unveiled too many details about this – other than the fact that the new CPU will be “more powerful” and “enhanced.” So we’ll have to wait a bit until we find out exactly what the new chipset has to offer.
After the new Exynos 5 Octa is announced, Samsung will kick off a contest on Twitter, dubbed “#ExynosEvolved Twitter giveaway.” Some lucky folks will win “brand new, Exynos-powered devices.” More details will be unveiled next week.
The current Exynos 5 Octa (introduced in early 2013) is powering the Samsung Galaxy S4 i9500, and actually includes two processors: a quad-core ARM Cortex-A15, and a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7.
The new Exynos chipset might be used for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III phablet (or at least for some versions of it). The Note III should be announced in early September.
