Samsung has made the world aware about the Exynos 5433 chipset, which will feature in some variants of the Galaxy Note 4 phablet. The company today has officially taken the wraps off this particular chipset by calling it the Exynos 7 Octa. This chip is one of the most powerful octa-core chips going around as it utilizes ARM’s Cortex-A57 and A53 cores respectively. Using the 20nm manufacturing process, it is very easy on the battery as well, so it’s a very powerful mobile SoC overall.
Samsung will start branding this chipset as the Exynos 7 Octa henceforth, switching from Exynos 5 Octa as seen in previous Samsung devices. The chipset uses a Mali-T760 GPU on board which apparently offers 74% enhanced graphics performance compared to the predecessor.
The Exynos 7 Octa is expected to be used in a wide range of devices in the coming months, including the Galaxy Note 4 which begins shipping out globally in the coming days. Samsung has historically used the Exynos chipsets for non-LTE markets, but things are quite different this time around as the Exynos 7 Octa supports LTE networks by default.
