Exynos 5 Octa

Samsung has chosen (or has been forced) to ship the Galaxy S4 with two different processors – one model contains the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 and the other Samsung’s very own Exynos Octa. What most consumers don’t know is that Samsung might be in a position to increase the performance of Exynos Octa based Galaxy S4 devices by as much as 10 percent this summer just by releasing new software.
