Back in October, following the announcement of Apple’s A7 chip, Samsung confirmed the company was readying 64-bit Exynos processors for mass production. Fast forward to the present, and it sure appears like the Korean company is prepared to show off exactly what it has been working on these past few months. On its Exynos Twitter account on Wednesday, Samsung posted a teaser image strongly hinting that we’ll see some sort of announcement at Mobile World Congress. Samsung is calling it the “Exynos Infinity.”
Expected to sport 64-bit architecture, the CPU will likely feature in Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S5, which we’re expecting to make an appearance at the big show in Barcelona later this month. We thought we might see something at CES in January, but it turned out the company wasn’t quite ready to share its latest Exynos project. With the biggest event in mobile set to kick off in a matter of days, it sure looks like the company finally has all of its ducks in a row.
With Samsung already acknowledging the new processor, and hints showing up in Linux kernel patches, the probability is high Exynos Infinity will be a 64-bit chip. Apple’s A7 chip has been out for months already, and it’s unlikely Samsung wants to allow its fiercest rival to have any more separation. Samsung never shies away from using the most bleeding edge specs, so chances are pretty high the Exynos Infinity will be exactly what we think it is.
