The bottle of fate spins again
Will it? Won't it? The latest word says that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be matching Apple's A7 chip found in the iPhone 5S.
First we heard that Samsung was working on a new 64-bit Exynos CPU for its next handset – most likely the Samsung Galaxy S5.
Then we were told that it was too squeezed for time and wouldn't have the chip ready in time for the new phone.
But apparently that's now changed. According to GforGames, Samsung has almost finished work on its 64-bit chip, which will most likely feature eight cores and is "almost ready for its release".
The site adds that there are still some small technical and logistical tweaks that need to happen, but Samsung is past the difficult stage.
But with so much back and forth on this one, we you're better off putting money on Kanye West being his own best man than on the S5 definitely coming with the 64-bit Exynos chipset.
The Galaxy S5 is rumoured to be appearing as early as January, earlier than the March release we initially anticipated.
