Samsung Announces 1.4GHz Quad-Core Processor For “The Next Galaxy”

Samsung may be releasing their own set of teasers for its big “The Next Galaxy” announcement on May 3rd, but that isn’t stopping them from talking about the processor. Samsung has released details and a promotional video for the appropriately dubbed “Exynos 4 Quad” running at 1.4GHz per core and based on the ARM Cortex A9. Samsung is touting the 32nm High-K Metal Gate technology, power management, per-core dynamic voltage and frequency scaling. Don’t know what all that means, that’s ok, just know that it’s supposed to be better than anything on the market right now.

Already in production, the Exynos 4 Quad is scheduled to be adopted first into Samsung’s next Galaxy smartphone that will officially be announced in May. Samsung’s Exynos 4 Quad is also sampling to other major handset makers.

Samsung believes the new chip will offer double the processing power of its 45nm predecessor while drawing 20 percent less power. Still unsure what that all means? No problem, Samsung has released a brief promotional video highlighting the power of the Exynos 4 Quad and teasing the Exynos 5 dual all in one 93 second video.

There is only one question left, will the Exynos quad-core work with T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 42Mbps network or will it be a quad-core Snapdragon S4? Hopefully we’ll find out on May 3rd.

    Thats exactly the question I’d like to know as well.

    May 3rd will be here soon.

  • mreveryphone

    Please have a micro sd slot please have a micro sd slot

    • god of houston

      they dont care if your crying for a sd card slot they still going to make there money w/or/without you

      • mreveryphone

        Or if no slot at least make it with 32gb of storage

        • Sdfsdf

          you will never see sd slots on high end phones ever again. moving on up to the cloud….

        • Cirrob

          Not until the cloud is 100 percent available reliable and instantaneously able to provide our data. It’s a cute concept but not even close to being there yet.

        • Come on, sdcards aren’t even 100 percent reliable.

  • Kilroy4103

    Is that the new S3 shown half way through the video? Or is that Note just simulated the video?

    • mreveryphone

      Look like the note

  • roger

    sooooo what i’d like to know is if that is the tmobile version of the galaxy note with the new processor? if so the best things come to those who wait…maybe

  • OWNED!

    WOW. See you soon S3!

  • Iucidium

    Oh christ. 3000mah battery please.

  • Hippoflyer9000

    I read the new processor is designed with the same wiring slot as the old. I was thinking maybe they will put the new one in the t mobile note……. Dare to dream!

  • Vim

    I see 3 questions:

    1) Does it support HSPA+ 42?
    2) How does it compare against the Krait S4 and Tegra S3 in benchmarks?
    3) Will a T-Mobile Gal S3 get released in the US before Qualcomm starts shipping its new quad core Krait S4  to HTC for possible inclusion in a G4x?

  • Nick Thai

    Have you guys seen EXYNOS “5” at the beginning of the VIDEO. Could it be the one for GS III ??? Give me a surprise Sammy

    • J-Hop2o6

       No. Exynos 5 series will be late this year. GS3 will use Exynos 4212/4412. GS2 uses 4210.

  • Mike in FL

    I’m curious as to whether anyone here has ever gotten anything remotely close to 42Mbps on a T-Mobile phone. I live in Orlando, FL- supposedly one of the HSPA+ markets, and with my Saumsng Vibrant (I realize it’s not HSPA+ capable), I have never gotten much above 2.

    I really wish the FCC would mandate that cellphone carriers publish average DL speeds instead of the theoretical BS that companies push (especially T-Mo).

    • CRT24

      That’s the max speed you could experience if you were the only person using that tower and had a 42mbs capable device….once you are sharing that output with multiple users then of course you will not get the full 42mbs. That’s just the way it works

  • Deadeye37

    Not sure which I’m more excited for, May 3rd’s announcement of the Galaxy S III, or May 4th’s debut of The Avengers.  That will be once great week!

    • MarcusDW

      I can’t wait to see that either.

  • What a Beast. Please T-Mobile, get this Beast. If T-Mobile can snag this new Beast and the Galaxy Note they could snag a bunch of new customers that are just looking for a reason to jump ship. With the  phones they have now customers would rather go elsewhere. Get it Done T-Mobile.
