Not to be overshadowed, Samsung also announced recently a new 5420 version of its flagship Exynos 5250 processor, which powers the Google Nexus 10 tablet.
six-core Mali T-628 GPU, so the 3D rendering results were night and day. We can't wait to hear which will be the first device Samsung will place this bad boy into, as mass production starts next month.

But the new N10 with the improved Octa and the monster T-628 can't come soon enough!
