Samsung announced their 2014 Galaxy S line flagship yesterday, the Galaxy S5 came with a Snapdragon 801 processor and there was no mention of a Exynos sibling, however there are new leaks that reveals the company does plan to get one in to play soon enough. A detailed chart obtained shows the complete Galaxy S line up from S1~S5 along with the specifications upgrade from time to time, it details a Exynos Octa-Core SoC clocked @ 2.1Ghz, while the GPU isn’t mentioned.
The source has now retracted the post so it might not be a “Rock Solid” deal yet, but seeing the pattern that Samsung has adopted over the years, we might not be far from the reality. Additionally the Exynos Infinity SoC that was teased for a MWC debut wasn’t spoken of by Samsung at their event, this might be the same Soc the Galaxy S5 will have and it sure isn’t ready just yet (while we are hoping there is no harm in expecting a 64Bit Exynos too)
Update : Engadget confirms that there is Exynos Octa version Clocked @ 2.1Ghz (No further details)
