Samsung will unveil its latest Exynos chip at CES next month in Las Vegas, the company announced today on Twitter. Promising to raise the bar in 2014, the South Korean smartphone-maker will unveil its next-generation processor at an event set to take place on Jan. 7 during the annual tech expo.

The Galaxy-maker previously confirmed one of its Exynos processors will feature 64-bit architecture to compete with Apple’s A7 chip, and said that the new CPU was ready for mass production during a press conference back in October. The 64-bit Exynos chip is expected to make its debut with the Galaxy S5 as early as Feb. 2014.
Even if Samsung unveils a 64-bit chip next month in Las Vegas, there’s no guarantee it will be included in American models of the company’s next flagship smartphone. With both the Galaxy S4 and the Note 3, Korean models featured an Exynos chip while copies headed for the U.S. market featured a Qualcomm processor instead. We may see that same distinction in 2014 with the Galaxy S5, though it’s all up in the air at this point.
