Samsung still remains tight-lipped on the type of processor that lies under the hood of the Galaxy S4. However, since the Korean tech giant recently lift the lid on the Exynos 5 Octa (a new processor with eight cores), don’t be surprised if the new chip ends up under the bonnet of Samsung’s next flagship.

The four powerful cores are meant for running complicated or multiple tasks with ease, while the four weaker cores are meant to run the phone’s everyday tasks. This means enjoying unrivaled performance, while not draining the batteries too fast.
Other rumoured specs include 2GB of RAM for added performance, a 5-inch full HD display, and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera.
The follow-up to the highly popular Galaxy S3 is expected to launch sometime in spring.
