Samsung’s Exynos Twitter account posted a picture this morning with the tag “Exynos Infinity, in Barcelona,” an attractive clear trace at there being a brand new cell processor prepared for arrival at Cellular World Congress subsequent week. The remainder of the picture features a bull, however that’s doubtless a reference to Spain and the positioning of MWC, quite than some other trace.
So what’s the Exynos Infinity? No one knows at this point. Are we talking Samsung’s next-gen 64-bit processor that will compete with Apple’s A7? Maybe. A recent Linux kernel patch outed a Samsung processor under the codename GH7 that appears to be 64-bit.
Are we talking a next-gen 64-bit processor made for the Galaxy S5 that will also be unveiled next week? Maybe. Then again even it were put in the GS5, we have seen Samsung launch a variety of phones over the years running different chipsets depending on the market. We tend to see Qualcomm-powered phones here, while the rest of the world’s Galaxy line runs on Exynos SoCs. Who knows if U.S. consumers would even be a part of the fun.
We’ll know next week, that’s for sure. Actually, we’ll know on Monday, if not sooner. We often see chipset announcements the day before big mobile devices are unveiled, so keep an eye for something on Sunday.
