Besides the long-rumoured Galaxy Gear successor, the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone and some new tablets, we could also see the next-generation of Exynos chipsets from Samsung at Mobile World Congress (MWC) this year. The official Samsung Exynos Twitter account has posted a picture that shows a tagline “Exynos Infinity in Barcelona”. Though details are scarce, the image clearly hints at a new Exynos chipset ready for arrival at MWC next week.
The tweet by Samsung Exynos reads, “Continuing our market-leading innovation and leadership, we bring you our latest innovations. Please stay tuned.”

Rumor has it that the Exynos Infinity could be Samsung’s next-gen 64-bit processor that will compete with Apple’s A7. A recent Linux kernel patch also points to a Samsung quad-core processor under the codename GH7 that appears to be 64-bit. After Apple’s unveiling of the iPhone 5s (the first smartphone with an ARM chip that has 64-bit support), Samsung’s mobile business chief Shin Jong-kyun said that the upcoming Galaxy-branded smartphones from the South Korean electronics giant would come with 64-bit processing capability.
“Not in the shortest time. But yes, our next smartphones will have 64-bit processing functionality,” Shin was quoted as saying. The Exynos Infinity could also be a next-gen 64-bit processor made for the Galaxy S5, expected to debut at Samsung’s ‘Unpacked 5’ event on February 24 in Barcelona.
Stay tuned as we are sure to find out more next week!
