We know the next version of Galaxy is going to be called Galaxy SIII, and Galaxy SIII is getting Exynos 4 CPU which would be a 1.4ghz Quad-core processor.
Galaxy SIII is being announced on May 3rd. Dubbed the “Exynos 4 Quad,” based on the ARM Cortex A9. Exynos 4 Quad is manufactured using 32nm High-k Metal Gate technology, that improves power management, and per-core dynamic voltage and frequency scaling.
Already in production, the Exynos 4 Quad is scheduled to be adopted first into Samsung’s next Galaxy smartphone that will officially be announced in May. Samsung’s Exynos 4 Quad is also sampling to other major handset makers.
Samsung is basically announcing two new chips, which will be pin-to-pin compatible: Exynos 4 Quad and Exynos 4 Dual. This makes it easier for the phone manufacturers to switch. Both dual and quad are capable of playing full 30fps 1080p video playback and recording, includes an interface for HDMI 1.4 and also an embedded image signal processor interface.
