At the keynote in CES 2013 in Las Vegas, Samsung has revealed details regarding the Exynos 5 Octa chipset which is most likely to be housed in the upcoming flagship smartphone of the company, Galaxy S4.
The tech giant stated that the processor will impart pure and never-before-seen processing power to mobile devices. The Exynos 5 Octa possesses eight cores in all, based on big.LITTLE ARM architecture.
It consists of four ARM A7 cores and four ARM A15 cores. Depending on the nature of the task to be performed, only four cores will be active at any given point of time.
Less intensive tasks will have the A7 cores in action while gaming, multimedia and other Intensive tasks will put the A15 cores into work. This transfer between the two sets of cores will significantly improve the battery life of the device by upto 70%.
