Korean press claims that Samsung's Exynos 5430 SoC is in an advanced stage of development. Like desktop chips, the new SoC supports 64-bit, increasing the maximum memory size to a number sufficient for decades to come. Apple's recent iPhone 5C and 5S smartphones are already based on a 64-bit ARM processor.

Samsung's chipset is based on the ARM Cortex A-50 architecture. This architecture is significantly more efficient and capable of processing more complex calculations as well, thus increasing performance. The SoC will also offer support for DDR4 memory.

Samsung is said to have moved the launch of its Exynos 5430 SoC forward to better compete with the latest iPhone models. Persistent rumours claim that the Exynos 5430 SoC will be featured in Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S5. In addition to a new SoC, the Galaxy S5 will also feature an improved camera with optical image stabilisation and a metal enclosure.
