Samsung has announced that it will have a new processor ready for release next week. Named Exynos 5 Octa, the chip is also being considered to be the right fit for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 device as well. With the Note 3 already having been leaked ample of times and the rumors of release date are also circulating, rumors are unable to decide about the actual processor that will be coming inside the Galaxy Note 3.
According to some inside information Samsung can employ one of the three processors, the Snapdragon Qualcomm 800 chip, the present Exynos 5 Octa or it could be the new Exynos 5 Octa processor. Although Samsung has made no confirmation so far regarding what exactly is to be seen inside its Galaxy Note 3 device, the Samsung Exynos’ Twitter account though has made it clear the company is all set to launch the latest Exynos 5 Octa sometime next week.
Samsung on the other hand is tight lipped about the specifications, although it has mentioned the new chip will mark a significant improvement over the current version. Various rumor streams had mentioned the development of Exynos 5420 at the Samsung camp and experts believe it will be the Exynos 5420 that eventually will be launched next week. And then, at least one Note 3 variant powered by the new chip can’t be ruled out either. It is also possible that Samsung brings forth two variants just like it did with Galaxy S4. It can have one powered with the Snapdragon 800 chip and the other having the Exynos Octa 5 at its core.
The Exynos 5 Octa processor was first announced at the CES, this year and it made its actual debut inside Galaxy S4 early this year. The processor comprises of 8 cores though it’s only 4 cores that is in action at any given time to maximize on battery life while still delivering superior performance.
Although there is no such guarantee that this is the processor which is expected to be found inside Note 3, though things seem to be shaping out that way, what with the new Note 3 due to be launched in early September. Some other talked about specs of Note 3 includes a 13 MP camera, along with a 5.7 inch 1080p display. All of them can only be confirmed on Galaxy Note 3 release date.
