Samsung is expanding its flagship lineup with the newly official Samsung Galaxy Alpha and the rumored Galaxy S5 LTE-A version. Both are powered by the Exynos 5 Octa 5430 chipset, the one rumored to be at the heart of the Galaxy Note 4 too.
The S5 LTE-A we're talking of shouldn't be confused with the Snapdragon 805-powered Galaxy S5 LTE-A, which has a QHD screen (matching the LG G3). This yet-unannounced Galaxy S5 LTE-A G901F (octa-core) has a 5.1" 1080p screen instead (confusing, huh?).
The Galaxy Alpha has a 4.7" 720p screen, so its chipset (or just the GPU) may have been down-clocked since it doesn't need the performance but needs to tread lightly on the 1,860mAh battery.
We ran AnTuTu on the Galaxy Alpha and used a leaked score for the Galaxy S5 LTE-A (both S805 and Exynos versions) to get a feel for the new chipset.
Higher is better
The Exynos 5 Octa 5430 chipset has four Cortex-A15 and four Cortex-A7 cores, all eight of which can work simultaneously. It's paired with a hexa-core Mali-T628 and has a 32-bit dual-channel access to LPDDR3e RAM.
