Samsung today announced its next-generation mobile processor, called the Exynos 5 Octa. As the name implies, the 5 Octa has eight processor cores. The cores are grouped in two sets of four: one set of ARM Cortex A15s and one set of ARM Cortex A7s. The A15s can be used for the more intensive computing tasks while the A7s can be used for low-power computing needs. According to Samsung, the A7s will help reduce power needs by up to 70% compared to its Exynos 5 processor. The Exynos 5 Octa uses 28nm processes, though Samsung said it will reduce its chips to 10nm processes in the coming years. The 5 Octa was designed for flagship smartphones and tablets.
