While the best of Samsung at MWC 2014 is pretty much represented by the Galaxy S5, the company has also introduced other products at the event. Two of these are the company’s new mobile processors—the Samsung Exynos 5422 Octa and Exynos 5260 Hexa.
The first chip, the Exynos 5422 Octa, is the one recently unveiled that will power the octa-core version of the Galaxy S5. Similar to 2013’s Exynos 5 Octa, this new chip is comprised of four large cores and four lesser-powered cores that work together via the big.LITTLE technology.
On the other hand, the Exynos 5260 Hexa is designed for mid-range phones (e.g. the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo) with performance and efficiency in mind. As the name implies, this chip comes with six cores, two of which are based on Cortex-A15 and the remaining four on the older Cortex-A7.
Samsung has also unveiled its new CMOS image sensors, NFC chip, and a Wi-Fi chipset.
