Samsung Galaxy S5 to be powered by 64-bit Exynos Infinity processor?

Samsung is expected to launch the brand new Exynos Infinity processor at MWC 2014 inside the Samsung Galaxy S5.

New information has emerged suggesting the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be used to showcase Samsung’s Exynos Infinity processor next week.

Originally, it was believed that Samsung’s next chipset would be called the Exynos 6, but an image posted on the official Samsung Exynos Twitter account suggests it will be called Exynos Infinity.

Strangely, this image has since been removed but not before it was spotted by Sammobile. Samsung issued a secondary tweet suggesting that the above image had been removed due to animal rights protests, stating:

“We respect animal rights and had no intention to promote the opposite. We apologise to all that may have been offended.”

The site, notorious for accurate Samsung gossip, also spotted that a 64-bit quad-core Samsung CPU with the codename GH7 was mentioned in a Linux kernel patch. The GH7 SoC was listed with the ARMv8-A 64-bit architecture.

It seems a little too coincidental that the two pieces of information were discovered on the same day, and it’s not the first time that a 64-bit CPU for the Galaxy S5 has been tipped.

Apple introduced the 64-bit A7 processor with the iPhone 5S in September, so Samsung should want to equal its rival’s processing power with its latest flagship.

Yesterday, the camera specs and features of the Galaxy S5 were leaked, with a special Aqua Mode suggesting that the device will be waterproof.

Other Samsung Galaxy S5 rumoured specs include a fingerprint scanner, 5.25-inch full HD resolution display and a 16-megapixel rear camera.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is heavily anticipated to be launched at MWC 2014 during the Samsung Unpacked 5 event on Monday, February 24.

TrustedReviews will be at the press event to bring you all the latest news.
