Rumors continue to fly fast and hard. Samsung Electronics is busy in developing and reproducing a faster version of their quad-core Exynos processor line. It’s a very well-known fact that Samsung does churn out its fair share of processors, and whether they really look into action in Samsung’s own devices or in the devices manufactured by others, is really up to them.

A report from SamMobile clearly states that Samsung is developing a new system-on-a-chip (SoC) processor known as the Exynos 5440. This new SoC will be of the quad-core kind and will also implement ARM Cortex A15 processors. All this lines up nicely with the rumors about the new 28nm chip that Samsung being currently tested. The exact running frequency of Exynos 5440 is not being mentioned by the source; however, the maximum clock speed of the chips could be even lower.

People still sit and contemplate about the last year’s rumors of a dual Core Cortex A-15 @2GHz which spread like wildfire. Rumors were about the mass production of the chips and it would power the new S3 Galaxy. Currently Samsung working on producing and generating a successor to the extremely popular Galaxy S III, and I am sure a lot many would definitely appreciate and welcome an extremely powerful Galaxy S IV.

A Galaxy S IV seems to sound extremely encouraging and promising, especially if there is a quad-core Exynos CPU in the works based off of the Coretex A15 technology. Already it has a dual-core CPU based off of the A15 technology, but a quad-core could do wonders.

For all those who are excited about this, unfortunately there is no additional information about if the GPU will complement the processor or what will be the processor speed. The thought of an even faster processor sure would still attract a lot of attention.
