Samsung’s new flagship Galaxy smartphone is slated for launch next week and the outfit is using the hype to introduce its latest Exynos chip.
The new processor is Samsung’s first quad-core ARM chip, but unlike Nvidia’s Tegra 3, the Exynos 4 Quad is a 32nm part. Samsung claims the new chip will have 20 percent lower power consumption than its dual-core 45nm predecessors.
There is still no word on graphics, but if the rumour mill is to be believed it rocks a Mali-400MP4 core. The chip is capable of clocks up to 1.4GHz and we don’t doubt for a second that it will be more than a match for Nvidia’s Tegra 3 and Qualcomm’s S4 dual-cores.
We won’t wait long to see the new quad Exynos in action, as it powers the new Galaxy.
