For clarity: ARM Holdings is the company that develops processor architectures, which include Samsung’s own Exynos chip based. A senior official of the company confirms that discussions took place between the British company and Samsung, and a 64 bit processor – based on ARM’s design – next year will be part of a South Korean attractive, high. And then we are indeed on the Samsung Galaxy S5 , and / or the Galaxy Note 4.
For years, Samsung ARM’s processor designs in its own smartphones. All Samsung SOCs – system on a chip – the Exynos series based on ARM architecture from the kitchen, and can be found in eg the Galaxy S, S2 and S3. Only the Dutch versions of the Galaxy Note 3 and S4 have a processor from another stall, that of Qualcomm.
And although there is nothing wrong with that, so now seems likely that the extra large Galaxy S5 a “return” to ARM will mean. Return is enclosed within quotation marks, as are also the S4 and Note 3 with Exynos processor, including ARM architecture, sold in other markets.
Of course, the above is by no means new news. It is the first time that we hear from the mouth of someone other than Samsung, and should be counted as a serious piece of confirmation as such previous posts .
Furthermore, let the best – but unfortunately unnamed employee by name ARM – also know that the visor for the future is already focused on mobile processors with a 128 bit architecture. But before you nerd -heart starts beating faster: these chips we see not before 2015, and probably later. Pity? Come on! A Galaxy S5 64-bit processor has a nerd factor of 42 – there you will 2014 really that bad by then.
