Galaxy S5 release date, Tegra K1 unveiled, Xperia Z1 Compact is official and more: weekly news round-up
Rumors – we deal with tons of them on a daily basis. Some of them do turn out to be true, while others end up being totally wrong. This one, however, is being reported by a pretty reliable source. It is said that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be here by April of this year and its design will be different from what we're used to seeing from the Korean company. 

Leaving rumors aside, NVIDIA announced its new Tegra K1 chip, built for next-gen smartphones and tablets. Needless to say, it is a very promising piece of silicon with its 192-core Kepler graphics and a quad-core Corex-A15 CPU.

Another noteworthy story from last week comes from CES – the announcement of the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. It is the company's truly compact handset, made for those who want top notch specs in a phone that's actually easy to use single-handedly.

Or the iNtel Baytrail or i belive it will use the Octo6 A57.... Omg,, pure beast of raw power. But i also hope it dosen't deploy the A7, or A53, cause the A15s are powerfull Cpus, that needs 4 low powered A7s to not rinse out battery...

like the S800 isnt a beast? Look at iphone it has like a dual core and runs around every other device, if only companies would spend time optimising their software instead of making a new model every week or so. S600/s800 are really powerful chipsets already.
