New iPhone to supposedly feature quad-core CPU based on Exynos 4 - read the full textHTC, Samsung, and LG and Huawei are among the big-name manufacturers to release quad-core smartphones this year, and it seems like Apple will be putting its name on that list. Rumors abound that the upcoming new iPhone will feature a quad-core A6 processor produced by Samsung, which will...

 

Sort by:

Apple will relese the Iphone 5 with the curent's gen Ipad cpu,like in the past ...so the A5x.The GPU will be PowerVR SGX543MP4,no Adreno.i am sur of that,look at apple's hirtory,but it will be a 4g for sure.

>>Android is inefficient:
http://www.gsmarena.com/intel_...ews-4372.php

"Why does apple need 4 cores all of the sudden ?"
>>Because apple optimizes software , there are so many apps which run using new iPad Retina Display at Native rather than scaling (which is used for every android app) and also utilize dual core processors.

Can you Name a single app which runs native in 1900 x 1200 screen of Transformer Prime ? or atleast 720p screen of Nexus/Galaxy ?

"Because it lags even with 2 cores and it doesn't even have real multitasking and doesn't do even one quarter the things android does in the background like sync, download stuff, stream music, weather , news, managing settings bassed on location and much muh more."
>>I heard only from you that iOS lags , iOS doesnt have sync ? iTunes or any other software alternatives

>>it cant download stuff ? there are like 3 stores where u can download everything appstore ,iTunes and iBooks ,and u can download everything u get from mails like attachments and u can get photos via iCloud photostream etc.

"So why does apple need 2 or 4 cores when it dosnt do multitasking ?"
Tell me , how android does real multitasking ? every OS has background processes running even Symbian from 2004 has it , you are the only one who said that an "OS" doesnt have no background process , So android does multitasking , give an example please , how it is better implementation ?

"If you touch the screen the whole processing power goes to rendering and the whole phone stops doing anything else...apps wont stream, apps wont download, even the web page will not continue to load or render missing tiles until you release the screen."
>>Cydia creater Jay Freeman and lot of experts from XDA clearly said this argument is utter nonsense , when an android developer explained why "android is "doomed" to lag" , You can search google for more info on that article.
It seems that u just copy-paste everything from internet without knowledge of anything.

"LoL thats multitasking a la apple. And then it still stuters and lags."
>>perhaps u are using touchwiz and getting confused with iOS as it looks like almost exact copy of iOS.

Then Sammie plans either to add LTE support to the 'modified' Exynos chipset or a throw separate LTE module in (like the Korean version of the SGS3 about to be launched this month). Deep inside I thought Apple was going to launch something with an A15 processor inside, but there's no reason to do that if Samsung has not yet done it. They don't need to follow Samsung so closely this time.

Enynos chips don't support LTE so maybe they might be sticking to a5x chip

I wonder what gpu it will use

Firstly haters STFU and talk about the post instead of whining.

Now back to the post.... This is a bad move unless they can counter the poor battery life. The 4S is a fantastic phone but the dual CPU killed any chance of a prolonged battery life.

If they can deal with this priority issue there may be hope for a quadcore powerhouse otherwise i'm wasting my time getting the 5.

I am gutted about the 4S Battery life, and with it being incased you cant even have a spare.....

There's a Qualcomm LTE chip than can be added to the Exynos coming out next month.

Samsung should stop making stuff for Apple? What??

Samsung is a typical Asian company. All they want is money. No way Samsung will torn the multi-billion dollar contract just because of allegation stuff. Samsung manufacture anything about microprocessor on the face of the earth. Manufaturer for ARM, Qualcomm, Apple and etc. Besides, if you have a best friends that gives all the luxury that you never have like money, cars and all sort of stuff but he gossips or bully you. Would you give up your friend over that?
