The present-day pioneer of the mobile computing industry has put up a dazzling show of innovations at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013, by engineering the octa-core processor and reimagining flexible screens. Yes, you must be quite sure of the tech giant I’m talking about! The South Korean firm, Samsung Inc.
Exynos 5 was a completely unexpected technological breakthrough, bringing two processors of 1.8 Ghz Quad core (Cortex – A15) and 1.2 GHz Dual Core (Cortex – A7) together within an extremely lilliputian 28 nm (Yes, you heard it right!) and a whopping cumulative of eight cores! Samsung brought to light the novel concept of using powerful quad core beasts for running massive applications like 3D games and design softwares, while using the next in line for lighter tasks like running office applications and texting, resulting in the most energy efficient mobile processor! Samsung calls it the big-LITTLE(Sarcasm, no?).
Samsung also announced its cutting-edge display technology, code-name: Youm. Basically an Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) display, it replaces glass with plastic, finally ending up as an unbreakable display! As the pixels generate their own light, they have no necessity to be backlit, making it incredibly thin.
To sum up, Samsung’s Show at the CES ended up amazingly. Analysts suggested that the Exynos 5 Octa and the Youm were two of the numerous clues of the missing picture of the puzzle, the Samsung Galaxy S IV. Well, it’s now time to wait and watch!
