Samsung unveils Exynos 7 Octa, 20nm 64-bit Cortex-A57/A53

Samsung has an announcement, but unfortunately it isn't related to the rain of lollipops over the Internet. Or rather, it can be taken as indirectly related to Android 5.0 Lollipop too. The Korean electronics giant has just announced the newest member of its Exynos SoC family with a substantial jump in model number. The Exynos 7 Octa, with four Cortex-A57 and four Cortex-A53 cores, is one of the very few to be made using a 20 nm process. Curiously, Samsung isn't even mentioning the fact that this is a 64-bit chip.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: Phablet Refocused

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: Phablet Refocused

Samsung can’t afford to stumble with the Galaxy Note 4. The fourth-gen phablet arrives as Samsung wakes up to a new, and not especially rewarding, phase in its mobile life: the discovery that throwing a hundred designs at the market and hoping at least some of them stick no longer has the same sales success as it once did. At a time so fiercely competitive, Samsung can’t count on simply having originally created the Note 4’s segment to commend this latest model. It needs to deliver as much in the hand as its specifications promise to on the page.

Galaxy Note 4 bend test disputes Samsung’s claims

Galaxy Note 4 bend test disputes Samsung’s claims

You may have thought it was all over, but apparently it isn't. Perhaps as long as there are new phones coming out, there will be bend tests to be done. At least until people tire of hearing the same things over and over again. Unsurprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 isn't immune to such a trend and even Samsung itself succumbed to the fad. However, Unbox Therapy, who could be credited or blamed for spreading the #bendgate further, might have something to say about it.

Instead Samsung has first launched its curved edge screen smartphone in the Japanese market, supposedly owing to the country's culture of embracing the latest, and sometimes the strangest, technologies, which is what the Galaxy Note Edge definitely is.
