Samsung prepping a next generation 14nm Exynos 7890 chipset
Samsung might be working on two more Exynos chipset modules - 7890 and 7650 - judging from a LinkedIn profile that was sent to us. After mishaps with overheating Exynos 5 series, Samsung used its homebrew processor line sparingly, but is now back in full force with the Exynos 7420, that is about to go into the Galaxy S6.

Regarding the differences between Snapdragon 810 and the Exynos 7-series, we'd have to wait and see exactly what modification Samsung will use for the S6, but one thing is for certain - it will be built on the superior 14nm process, whereas Qualcomm uses 20nm for the 810, and only this year will move down to 14nm. The 14nm bit, however, is only mentioned for the Exynos 7890 here, whereas the other piece is rounded as "the first 64-bit," which is actually the silicon that is going in the S6, so this one might just be a rebrand of the chipset we will be taking for a ride two weeks from now.
