The folks over at Samsung has just confirmed that they have a 64-bit Exynos chipset in the works, and it is being prepared for a full fledged debut in due time. Citing a number of “technical preparations”, this new chipset should arrive sometime this quarter – which would also mean that there is a pretty good chance of seeing it in action in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 flagship that will be announced next year. This particular 64-bit Exynos chipset will enable additional memory to be addressed, in addition to faster DDR4 units to see action which Samsung so happens to be preparing for 2014, too.
What have we heard about the Samsung Galaxy S5 so far? Well, for starters, it has been rumored to arrive with an eye sensor (take that, TouchID!) alongside the possibility of a 16-megapixel camera that could very well be a Sony component. Well, to have it arrive with a 64-bit Exynos processor might just be the icing on the cake.
Will we be able to see the Galaxy S5 appear in January next year, or perhaps in time for a late February launch? Only time will tell, but increased pressure from the competition might just see it arrive sooner rather than later.
