Samsung TE4 device with Cortex A15 and Mali-T604 graphics pops up in benchmarks

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.

I was hoping they would release the Exynos 5 into consumer devices this year, but seeing that they already released their flagships for this year with the Exynos 4412, that was disappointing. Maybe the Galaxy S IV... It doesn't seem like anyone is bringing in their A-15 offerings to the masses this year, apart from the S4 A-15 "equivalent". Still waiting on Tegra 4, OMAP 5, and Exynos 5... that means next year should be A-15 galore. Also, I'm surprised TI didn't come out with an A-9 quad this year. It probably would've debuted on the Razr HD or the next Nexus, which would've been nice.

There is a Tizen element in the Galaxy Note 2. The spiral photo gallery caught my attention.

TI has put the omap 4470 into the 8.9" kindle. It's supposed to be a quad core "equivalent" according to amazon. Not sure if its really superior to the tegra 3 though. Has anyone seen benchmarks for this 4470? I know the Motorola went with the s4 in the razr but I'd guess the new nexus could potentially contain the 4470 if its really good as the tegra 3. I had seen somewhere on this site that the new nexus may have a dual core a9 processor so I can't imagine it having anything less than the 4470 if that's the case.

i think the reason samsung went with dual core is to get a quad core or a bit more performance but with much better battery efficiency. other wise they'll try to get a quad core ARM A-15 architecture
