Samsung has announced that the CPU to power their ‘Next Galaxy’ device will be a 1.4GHz Exynos Quad-Core processor. The processor will be based on the ARM Cortex A9 CPU architecture, the 32nm HKMG(High-k Metal Gate) technology is being spruiked by Samsung as offering twice the power but with 20 percent less power consumption.
