China-based Meizu is one of the few companies that uses Samsung’s Exynos processors for their smartphone. They integrated Samsung’s dual-core 1.4GHz Exynos in their Meizu MX and now they’ve announced the Meizu MX Quad-core that boasts a quad-core Exynos SoC.
Interesting thing is that Samsung hasn’t officially announced the processor and the few times we heard about a quad-core Exynos, it was about the Exynos 4412.
Anyways, Meizu says the new Exynos processor is based on Cortex-A9 with 32nm HKMG technology. Compared to the previous generation Meizu MX, the new chip helps to reduce power consumption by 20 percent, is 60 percent faster and improves graphics processing by 50 percent.
The question to be asked is whether Samsung will use the same processor in Galaxy S III? Or the Korean company is holding onto something better for their flagship?
