Samsung recently announced via Twitter that they’re set to announce their new Exynos processor on January 7 at CES 2014 in Las Vegas. The tweet does not give any details about this processor, but it is likely to be an octa-core model, which will also be used in the upcoming Galaxy S5 smartphone.
The cutting edge processor will feature 64-bit architecture and will compete with Apple’s A7 chip. It is expected to make its debut in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5, though nothing is certain about which devices will feature the processor.
To remind you, Exynos is a series of ARM-based SoCs, which were first introduced in 2010 and since then at-least some of all Galaxy S-series and Note-series smartphones have been powered by them.
