Samsung teases Exynos announcement for tomorrow

Samsung is teasing a new announcement for tomorrow regarding its Exynos line of processors. The next-generation Exynos is expected to power the rumored Galaxy Note 4, which is expected later this year.

Samsung's last announcement regarding the Exynos processors was in February, when they announced the hexa- and octa-core Exynos 5 series. The teaser image for tomorrow's news features a number of bright icons on top of a ice-covered background, indicating that running cool will be a key feature of the next iteration of Exynos, if it is indeed announced tomorrow, but we can't be sure yet. We'll know more tomorrow after Samsung's announcement.

What do you think Samsung will announce tomorrow? Let us know below in the comments.

Samsung teases Exynos announcement for tomorrow


This will be the 64bit Exynos 5433 an octa-core processor offering four Cortex-A15 cores and four Cortex-A7 ones along with an updated Mali GPU. It will be paired to an Intel XMM7260 Cat. 6 LTE modem. It was reportedly codenamed HelsinkiPro during development.

The International version of the upcoming Galaxy Note 4 will definitely have this processor.

I think they are going to announce that the galaxy 5 ( thousand) in the future will be as cool as Vanilla Ice was in day.... Hence the ice with the icons. I want it

Right, but they are announcing a processor not a device. So by the time a device is ready if its a 64 bit processor it will be able to take full advantage of android L once its out.

A A57/A53 Octa 64bit Exynos with ARMS' latest GPU IP, that will still be custom ROM developer hell like all previous Exynos. Interested to see if it have Intel integrated LTE chip though.

I have an international S5 with Equinox octacore processor. Only time that it overheats is when location is turned on, otherwise it runs cool, even after 2 hours of playing Modern Combat.

I still don't know why Samsung still produce chips if rarely any of its devices are powered by their own chips. No one except Xiaomi do...

They're different department's under the same brand. While they both share the name Samsung, the phone maker still had to compete with other bidders to use the exynos series.

I played around with a galaxy tab s 10.5 yesterday and it lagged like crazy.
I rebooted it and it wasn't any better.
Exynos chips have always been horrible in my opinion.
My tab pro 8.4 has no lag at all. I wish Samsung would learn.

Leaked benchmarks show the Exynos 5433 which is rumored to be an octa core (four Cortex A57 + four Cortex A53) chipset beating the 805 in CPU and GPU tests. Not to mention the 5433 being 64-bit. The thing looks like it'll be a monster.

Nope. Samsung was the first doing octa core processors with A15+A7 big.LITTLE configurations. The chip in the 616 is from Mediatek if I remember correctly and is using A7 cores which are super low power. The chip that will be announced today is 4 high powered 64-bit capable Cortex A57 cores with 4 Cortex A53 cores. These are the 64-bit successors to A17 and A7 cores.
In other words, in terms of performance - the 616's chipset gets obliterated by this new one from Samsung.

Considering that the Galaxy Tab S series has been out for almost 2 weeks, I think it's time they refreshed their tablet lineup. The Tab S is starting to get a bit dated.

Let's hope they are back to making awesome chips, since the galaxy s3 quad core exynos they have been very poor, rushing out I core chips that are not optimised etc.

It's highly likely the Note 4 US variant will have a Snapdragon 805, not the new Exynos. I wouldn't be shocked though if international variants include support for US LTE bands given that Intel is rumored to be providing the chipset for LTE connectivity and how sought after the Exynos version may be if it's a performance champion.
