Samsung to announce its latest Exynos 6 SoC at CES 2014?

With the battle of smartphone processors on a full high, there is a buzz that Samsung is working on its next version of Exynos SoC. If we go by the rumours, the new Exynos 6 will be announced by Samsung at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which will commence on 7th January.

The chip will include Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) technology, which means it will be a true octa-core, not like the big.LITTLE chip architecture which uses one set of four cores at one time, and will have ARM’s 64-bit core. Rumours are claiming that an Exynos S chip is also in the line which will be announced at the same time. Samsung will be using its very own 64-bit core in the Exynos S chip, and rumours claim it will be 1.43 times faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.

Another point here is that the Exynos 5 processor on the Galaxy Note 3 has HMP hardware support but no software support. So we can expect a future software update by Samsung which could make the Exynos 5 on the Note 3 a true octa-core just like the rumoured Exynos 6.

Hopefully the new chips will be featured on the Galaxy S5, but we aren’t quite sure which one. Samsung could also play the variant game and launch two versions of the S5, one with the Exynos 6 and one with the Exynos S. All will be uncovered soon, so till then we can just keep our fingers crossed.
