Samsung to announce new Exynos Infinity processor at MWC, possibly 64-bit

The Galaxy S5, like all of Samsung’s flagships, is expected to usher in a newer and faster version of the company’s Exynos mobile processor. Until now, this newer chip has been called the Exynos 6, but it looks like it will actually be called Exynos Infinity, and could be announced at Samsung’s Unpacked event at MWC in Barcelona on February 24. Samsung Exynos’ Twitter account has posted a teaser image for the new chipset, and since the Galaxy S5 will also be announced at MWC, you can rest assured that it will be powering the company’s latest flagship smartphone.

While the teaser image doesn’t tell us whether the Exynos Infinity has 64-bit capabilities, there’s a pretty good chance it does, as a 64-bit Samsung quad-core SoC dubbed “GH7″ was spotted in a Linux kernel patch, sporting the ARMv8-A 64-bit architecture. The listing of the GH7 is light on any other details, but we’d like to think that the appearance of the 64-bit chip and Samsung’s teaser for the Exynos Infinity on the same day are more than just coincidences. With Apple having a considerable lead over the competition with its 64-bit chip on the iPhone 5s, Samsung is likely working hard on completing work on its own 64-bit Exynos CPU, and we could see the fruits of the company’s labor in a matter of days.

  1. Lovely!!

  2. Exynos 6, 64-bit octa-core processor?

    • Cores don’t matter so much. If a good dual core is good ‘enough’ for most mobile applications. Mobile phones don’t have multi-tasking or have multi-threaded applications. A dual or quad is just fine.
      best option could be like 2-A57 + 2-A53 cores.

      • You forget that Android supports multi-tasking as well as multi-threading. The more cores a device has, the better the multi-tasking ability will be. Now, for iOS, what you said is true, but we are looking at Android(and Tizen) here.

        • Don’t ever expect any Apple fan addict to ever admit that Apple didn’t invent 64 bit chips…… they bought the SoC designs with PA Semi. Who had PWRficient 64bit dual core SoC designs already in the works. Along with up to 16 core chip designs. Problem, was that they were running IBM RISC Full Desktop Instruction Sets. Which aren’t being used on any mobile devices. So the only reason Apple decided to buy PA Semi, was because ARM had recently announced their ARMv8 64bit Instruction Set Plans.

          So Apple had to do nothing but wait till ARM released them almost two years ago. Which when they did release them, Jim Keller had them already remapped to these chips with Intrinsity FAST14 Logic!

          But count up the Apps that actually utilize 64bit to it’s fullest on iOS 7 even and you still come up with ZERO, without more RAM and True System Wide Pervasive Multitasking that only Samsung seems to be able to run!!! ….along with many other features like drag n drop App to App in multiwindows, PiP and PoP!!!!

  3. Awesome !

  4. Definitely looks very promising for sure. The only thing trumping the S5 in 2014 is the Note 4.

  5. Most people don’t realize that the biggest advantage for us will be when it comes to larger file sizes for movies/videos. 32 bit is limited to 4GB, though it can be worked around to some extent. 64 bit does speed some things up, but for the most part, most users just would never see the difference between 32 bit and 64 bit.

  6. I wonder what gpu this soc uses
    Mali or powervr

  7. Will this support LTE networks worldwide? Will this be available in all countries?
