Apple iPhone 5 Will Allegedly Sport Quad-Core Processor Based on Samsung’s Exynos Chip

iPhone 5 - Black - Front, Side, and Back

We are expecting the iPhone 5 to support 4G LTE networks in the United States and it could be the first quad-core smartphone to do so.

According to a new report on Thursday, Apple is planning to include a quad-core processor in the iPhone 5 that is based off of the architecture used in Samsung’s quad-core Exynos CPU. That chip is available in international versions of the Galaxy S III, but U.S. carriers have decided to adopt Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 chip in U.S. models of the flagship instead. DigiTimes, which published the report, said the quad-core iPhone 5 is expected to land during the second half of this year, which is on a par with what we’ve heard from other rumors. Interested in what the iPhone 5 will look like? Check out our detailed renders.
