Samsung is reportedly working on a new System-on-Chip (SoC) dubbed Exynos 5210.
The technical details as well as the processing capability of the new SoC, a member of the Exynos 5 series, are yet to be confirmed. However, Sammobile notes that the Exynos 5210 may feature ARM's big.LITTLE technology which integrates a quad-core structure and is equipped with Dual Cortex-A15 and Dual Cortex-A7 cores.
The speculation is that the Exynos 5210 could also be a dual-core Cortex-A15 chip.
Samsung is reportedly likely to use the Exynos 5210 chip in its upcoming Galaxy S4 Mini. Since the Galaxy S4 runs with ARM's big.LITTLE technology in an Octa-Core processor, its smaller version is expected to feature ARM's big.LITTLE technology in a quad-core structure.
Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini has reportedly appeared on the company's official support page. According to the website, the Galaxy S4 Mini is expected to be available in four variants: the original Galaxy S4 Mini, a dual-SIM version called Galaxy S4 Mini Duos, an LTE version and a China- bound model:
Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini: GT-I9190
Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini DUOS: GT-I9192
Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini LTE: GT-I9195
Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini for China: GT-I9198
The Galaxy S4 Mini is said to feature 4.3in Super AMOLED qHD display with pixel density at 256 pixels per inch. The device will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and feature the new TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 user interface (UI). The Galaxy S4 Mini will be quite similar to the Galaxy S4. It is expected to be unveiled in either June or July.
