Samsung TE4 device with Cortex A15 and Mali-T604 graphics pops up in benchmarks
Unknown Samsung TE4 device has appeared in Rightware's benchmark database, causing quite a stir as it popped up with an ARM Mali-T604 graphics processor, indicating an Exynos 5-series processor with ARM Cortex-A15 cores. Given that TC4 is the coding for Samsung's tablet reference platform, through which it demonstrates its Exynos 4 chips prowess, that TE4 development board has to stand for something else.
WQXGA monster Samsung demonstrated to us at the CES expo in January, as the company wouldn't waste all that graphics power on such a run-of-the-mill tablet resolution.
Of course, the rumors about a Galaxy S IV are in full swing, with Samsung denying recently that it will have the handset announced as early as February/March next year at the MWC 2013. A number of sources, however, are pointing at Cortex-A15 for the next Galaxy S family member, so we might be looking into the early phases of testing an engineering prototype here. Here's to hoping.
