Samsung is teasing a chipset announcement by means of its official Exynos Twitter client. The teaser shows a bull going after a red flag, Corrida style. The name Exynos Infinity and a description entailing Samsung's latest innovations are all we got from the teaser, though. As for the architecture, we've heard Samsung will include 64-bit ARMv8 processors into its 2014 flagships, but it's unclear if those will be of the Cortex-A5x series or some custom developed ones. There's an outside chance that this will be the new chip powering the Galaxy S5 smartphone, although it's far more likely that the flagship settles for a Snapdragon 805 or an older-gen Exynos. Apple took the mobile world by surprise with its 64-bit A7 chip and so far Qualcomm has only responded in the form of an mid-range 64-bit Snapdragon 410 so it seems logical that Samsung will counter with a powerful next-gen 64-bit Exynos of its own.

geeteam posted a topic in Mobile NewsYesterday's Samsung Galaxy S5 event had one curious omission. If you looked at the spec sheet you'd notice that the company was seemingly only offering the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC for its latest flagship with the usual Exynos variant nowhere to be found. Turns out, there will be an Exynos variant of the Galaxy S5. According to a blog post by Samsung (which has now been redacted for some reason), the company will offer a 2.1GHz octacore variant of the Exynos SoC for the Galaxy S5. It is unclear whether this will be limited to select markets or if Samsung will adopt its previous strategy of keeping the Qualcomm model US exclusive and offer the Exynos model in all other regions. If that is the case, hopefully the Exynos model won't lack any major features, such as 4K video recording, the way it did on the Galaxy Note 3. The exact Exynos model is unknown. We will probably find out more when Samsung announces it officially, along with its availability on the S5. Source
