64-bit, big.LITTLE Cortex-A57 at 2.1GGHz, A53 at 1.5GHz
Samsung had a rather short press conference, not talking that much about what is inside its new flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones, at least not in terms of silicon.
With custom 64-bit CPU core
While some of the first devices based on the Snapdragon 810 are about to hit the global market, Qualcomm has decided to unveil some the first details regarding its next big thing at Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona, the Snapdragon 820 SoC.
64-bit 14nm Exynos with 5.1-inch 577ppi screen
Samsung has just officially announced the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge phones. Both phones share the same DNA and the only difference is that the S6 Edge has a dual-side curved screen.
Credit cards, debit cards, NFC, MST
Samsung has finally introduced the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones that will bring Samsung Pay mobile payments to America and Korea this summer.
Qualcomm in trouble
Recently Samsung announced that serial production of its new 14nm SoC has already commenced. The new part is going to end up in Samsung Galaxy S6 and a few other devices.
Eight cores of terror
Samsung has announced an updated version of its Exynos 7 Octa processor. Last year it announced a 64-bit, ARMv8 processor based on a 20nm design, but these new chips will be 14nm processors.
Beats Intel and Apple
Fudzilla has found out that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be one of the first devices to boast a non-Intel chip build around a 14nm process.
Reduces footprint, boosts efficiency
Samsung has announced that it is now mass producing Embedded Package on Package (ePoP) memory, which greatly increases density and efficiency.
Getting crowded, isn't it?
Nvidia appears to be the latest chip designer to use Samsung’s and GlobalFoundries’ 14nm node. The company won’t be alone, as the same node will be used by Apple, Qualcomm, AMD and of course Samsung.
