Samsung Galaxy S5 to pack a 64-bit Exynos 6 SoC?

According to unconfirmed reports, Samsung is in talks to develop the SoC that will be used by its next flagship, Galaxy S5. But don’t be mistaken, this new Exynos 6 chip that will be used in Galaxy 5 will be hugely evolved when compared to its predecessor.


The dual core Exynos 5 SoC had some issues as far as its benchmarks were concerned and this lead to the appearance of the 8 core edition (Exynos 5410) and then the significantly improved Exynos 5420 edition used in Galaxy Note 3. So according to all the latest reports, the new Exynos 6 SoC will be based on the 14nm technique and it will support 64-bit operating systems and apps! Samsung is designing this chip along with IBM and GlobalFoundries and is trying hard to keep up with Apple in creating a 64-bit based SoC, packing two different types of cores inside: some Cortex-A53 along some Cortex-A57 cores!

As you may know already, the 64-bit transition doesn’t offer something important to smartphone AT this time, since no one has managed to offer smartphones with 4GB of RAM inside, nor are 64-bit apps to take advantage the benefits of cush a SoC. However this transition will help Apple and Samsung remain future-proof until 2015-2016 when most apps will be compatible with such an architecture. This Exynos 6 SoC is expected to be installed in the most awaited (already) Galaxy S5 that Samsung plans to unveil in 2014!
