Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa is going to see an upgrade

Exynos Octa, world's so called Octa core mobile processor from Samsung. It hit the market with galaxy S4. Now it is going to get an upgrade. Samsung has recently announced that it is going to release an enhanced version of Exynos 5 Octa SoC. 

If you don't know then, Exynos 5 Octa is not a real Octa core-processor. Though it has eight cores, but they are divided in two groups of four. One group has 4 1.6-1.8 GHz ARM Cortex A15 cores while the other one has 4 1.2-1.4 GHz ARM Cortex A7 cores. This is known as big.LITTLE architecture. While the four "big" ARM Cortex-A15 cores would process computation-intensive tasks such as extensive gaming and media-rich browsing, the four "LITTLE" ARM Cortex-A7 cores would handle the lighter workloads. All of the eight cores are not working at the same time. 

It is expected to see boosted speed, clock frequency and performance in "Evolved" Exynos 5 Octa. Leaked Specs say that next generations Exynos 5 Octa will have name Samsung Exynos 5420. It seems that Samsung will launch rumored Galaxy Note III with this next generation Exynos 5 SoC, in IFA 2013.
