Samsung Galaxy S5 rumored to pack 14nm Exynos 6 chipset
A report in Korean media has emerged, potentially shedding light on the CPU of the yet to be revealed Samsung Galaxy S5. Reportedly, next generation Samsung Galaxy S smartphone will pack an Exynos 6 CPU with 14nm architecture and 64-bit support.
Along with 64-bit support, the next generation Samsung Exynos CPU is said to feature ARMís big.LITTLE octa-core configuration with Cortex-A53/A57 cores. The latter can operate simultaneously using half as much power as the currently available Exynos 5420.
If the report turns out to be the real deal, Samsung will make quite a jump in the manufacturing process used in the making of the Exynos family of CPUs. The current generation uses 28nm process, while previous rumors have suggested that Samsung is working on 20nm architecture. The latest report about 14nm chips sounds great, though we do recommend that you take it with a pinch of salt.
According to a report from last week, Samsung will take the wraps off the Galaxy S5 in January.
