Samsung mobile GPU coming in mid-2015
Samsung might launch the Galaxy Note 5 before the end of 2015 and this product could come with a major hardware change. The Exynos chips made by Samsung at this time are based on the ARM architecture and use the Mali graphics processing units virtually untouched. According to recent rumors from industry insiders, Samsung is working on its own GPU design already, and this may be ready to launch in a few months.
A report published by ZDNet Korea reveals that Samsung has almost completed work on its GPU core. The details will be unveiled at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference in San Francisco which is scheduled to take place in early February, claims the same source.
If the development of the graphics part completes its last stage without facing any major setbacks, the next-gen Exynos SoC by Samsung should be ready for use in the next Galaxy Note phablet. Since nothing is official for now, we should wait for the February conference to find out more about Samsung's mobile GPU and the company's next-gen flagship phablet.
