Moreover, the Exynos 6 Octa not only the first mobile processor from Samsung’s kitchen with a 64 bit architecture, but also manufactured on a 14 nanometer process.
So all this promises not only a leap in terms of computing power, but also a significant energy savings. According to reports, the new chip while using eight cores but half the energy used by the current Exynos processor 5 Octa burned (with only four cores in action).
In fact, there now remains only one really relevant detail open: will the next version of the Android operating system – 4.4 number, nickname KitKat – indeed the 64 bit architecture of the Exynos 6 support?
