Samsung hints at Exynos announcement during CES
A tweet sent out Friday from the official Samsung Exynos Twitter account, hints that something is coming for the Exynos line during CES 2014. The tweet points out that CES 2014 is right around the corner and asks if you're ready to unlock Samsung Exynos. This could have to do with the 64-bit Exynos chip supposedly being developed by Samsung for the Samsung Galaxy S5, the next version of the Korean OEM's flagship Android phone.

Since Apple launched the Apple iPhone 5s with a 64-bit A7 processor, other chipmakers have thrown their hat in the ring, saying that they too are are working on a 64-bit chip. Even Qualcomm, where an executive had called the 64-bit A7 a "gimmick," has done a 180 degree reversal and announced a low-end 64-bit chip of its own..

Another possibility is that this is related to Samsung's use of Heterogeneous Multi-Processing that can allegedly turn the Samsung Exynos 5 into a true octa-core chip with all 8 cores active at once, like the MediaTek MT6592. Currently, the big.LITTLE architecture on the Exynos 5 allows only one set of four cores to be active at a single time.
