Exynos 5 Octa chip on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3?

2013 January 20

The Korean tech giant recently unveiled the Exynos 5 Octa chip during the CES 2013 event. However, Samsung did not specify which device will sport the said Octa chip. Rumours have it that this new and powerful Octa-processor will land with the sequel to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It could also mean that Samsung’s future flagship device the Galaxy S4 could also come in with the same octa-core processor. Yes, Samsung releasing its flagship device with a quad-core is simply not right (well, that’s just my two cents on the matter). 

Yes, even if it was initially rumoured that Samsung’s up and coming flagship device is going to be the very first Samsung device to land with the said Octa-core processor, however, The Korea Times thinks differently about the said subject.

According to The Korea Times, Samsung will start allow Chinese phone makers to use its Chipset, which only translates to us seeing the Exynos 5 Octa-core chip inside Huawei and ZTE devices this year.

Yes, only Huawei and ZTE will be more competitive and might also be given an increased in their market shares. Huawei and ZTE also confirmed this deal with Samsung. But the two Chinese companies did not specify what their deal is all about.

The Galaxy Note 3 is also said to sport an enormous display at 6.3”. This only makes the device a strong competition for small tablets. Yes, with a minor size difference (6.3” to 7”), people would instantly choose the hybrid device than tablets.

Yes, there are tons of rumours about the Galaxy Note 3 (to be released this summer or fall), but it looks like earlier Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours proved to be wrong. A good example of it is that the Galaxy S4 will sport Samsung’s latest octa-core chip set and Google’s up and coming new OS the Key Lime Pie (Android 5.0) since it’s not out yet.

All we know now is that the Galaxy Note 3 will host a more powerful processor than the Galaxy S4.
