Despite the fact Samsung managed to sell 20 million Galaxy S4 units worldwide during the first two months on the market, almost two times as fast as the Galaxy S3, the South Korean company does not seem happy with the handset's performance. According to recent rumors, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will arrive in early 2014 and its hardware specs could include a 64-bit Exynos 6 processor.

Right now, most mobile processors use a 28 nm process and the next natural step would be the move down to 20 nm. Latest rumors claim that Samsung will skip this and the Exynos 6 chips will be built using a 14 nm FinFET process.

These upcoming mobile processors are expected to pack a combination of low-power Cortex-A53 and more powerful Cortex-A57 cores, while offering 64-bit support and using the ARM big.LITTLE architecture.

Obviously, Samsung did not confirm anything about the Galaxy S5 yet. If the handset will be revealed at the Mobile World Congress 2014 taking place in February, the Exynos 6 may not make it into its specs list.

On the other hand, it is possible to see the Galaxy S5 sporting a curved or even a flexible OLED display, since the first step has been made already with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Round.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
