Samsung to announce new Exynos Infinity processor at MWC 2014?


We’ve been hearing about a new 64-bit Exynos processor since last year, and now Samsung may finally be ready to announce it.

The official Samsung Exynos Twitter account today posted a teaser image which suggests that we should expect to see a brand new chipset, called Exynos Infinity, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week. The image is accompanied by the following text:
 

We probably don’t have to remind you, but we’re still going to say it: Samsung is also getting ready to announce its long-rumored Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone at MWC 2014. Thus, the Exynos Infinity could power some S5 variants.

Of course, we can’t be sure that the Exynos Infinity will be a 64-bit processor. However, a 64-bit CPU would certainly allow an eventual 5.2-inch Quad HD Galaxy S5 to run smoothly in any situation.
 
Samsung will host an Unpacked press event on February 24 at MWC, so we'll probably find out more about this new Exynos on that day.

Can't decide LG G3? or S5? Which one do you guys think will be better this year?

I prefer S5.

9. GeekMovement unregistered

That should probably be a question for after the G3 announcement (:

Definitely the S5.. but if LG does it like last year, i doubt you'd be able to tell the difference...

Samsung will deliver for sure the best hardware. Samsung design, one need to see what they deliver.

"However, a 64-bit CPU would certainly allow an eventual 5.2-inch Quad HD Galaxy S5 to run smoothly, and to match the performance of Apple's 64-bit-capable iPhone 5S." Phonearena at its finest. because 64 bit is all that matters.

The weird thing is... he's saying the 64-bit CPU from Samsung should allow the QHD GS5 to match with the non-HD iPhone 5S. xD

You do forget that the A7 is in the ipad rockin a 2048x1536 resolution which is more then your average 1080p.Not just that but it tears through benchmarks.Do not underestimate apple their,answer is already in the works probably the A8 CPU which will likely be quad core.

Hey Sambots, enjoy that new revolutionary 64bit processor and fingerprint scanner! Welcome to 2013

Haha... if rumors are true and apple decides to go with a bigger screen, i am curious to see what the ifans have to say about it. After all big screens are goofy, waste of battery, not cool, etc. Oh wait!!! as per nctx77... Apple hasn't invented a bigger screen yet! After all they were the first mobile device to have a fingerprint scanner and a 64 bit processor with a whole 1 gig of ram.... It is apple that's playing catch up, not the other way around

Hey Applebots, Motorola's quote: enjoy that new revolutionary fingerprint scanner! Welcome to 2011.

They were, actually. Revisionist history much?

Really??? First mobile device with fingerprint scanner... NOPE!!! First mobile device with 64 bit... NOPE!!! Fell free to look up motorola atrix, and then look up up any win8 talbet with a 64 bit OS. And before you start... ipad also got the 64 bit chip so yes first phone, but not first mobile device.

"Continuing our market-leading innovation..."? Samsung is responsible for almost nothing new or innovative in mobile. As a matter of fact, I cannot recall a single "first" of any significance that belongs to Sammy. LG and Apple are miles ahead of Samsung in firsts, only following Nokia (pre-WP) and Motorola. If we toss Google into the mix, Sammy doesn't make the top 5.

Apple first in what?? claiming they are first.... then yes. Feel free to educate yourself, as apple hasn't invented anything since woz.. youtube "tek syndicate" Has Apple Really Ever Invented Anything?

I think this is going to be announced now but ship later in the year..It is fairly sure that the S5 won't have this one ticking inside, considering all the rumors.

Umm....where is the innovation? This sounds like another S4. A new camera button? Wow!! Mind blown! Sambots, please tell me what's revolutionary about the leaks so far? 64 bit processor, fingerprint scanner, high res screen, waterproof.....all of this already been done. It's 2014, not 2013 lol! The iphone 6 will rape this thing! Y'all better hope it doesn't come out early.
