Samsung has already confirmed that it’s working on a 64-bit processor for launch this year and it could unveil the chipset tomorrow. The company’s Exynos Twitter account has teased the upcoming announcement by stating that it has ‘something new and exciting to show.’
The teaser has brought about a lot of speculation and some suggest that it could be the Exynos 5433 SOC which is expected to come with the Galaxy Note 4. We’re still a couple of months away from seeing the new phablet go official, so why is Samsung announcing its next high-end processor so early? Well, that’s normal behavior from the company as it has done the same multiple times before.

While the Exynos 5433 is part of the long-running series, it’s way advanced than the current chips. The SOC is said to feature quad Cortex A57 cores and quad Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.3GHz, combined with Mali T760 graphics. So that’s a 64-bit processor with the best graphics ARM has to offer.
According to SamMobile, the SOC might also feature the Intel XMM7260 modem which will bring LTE Cat 6 connectivity. There’s a second version of the Note 4 that’ll feature a Snapdragon 805 SOC instead. The phablet is expected to go official at the IFA 2014 in Berlin this September.
The Exynos 5433’s launch for tomorrow is not confirmed as yet and for all we know, the company could announce something different altogether. Check back tomorrow for an update.
