We have been hearing for a while that there will be different versions of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with different processors. The US and European version will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, there will also be another version with a Samsung Exynos 5420 Octa processor.
Samsung has just made their new Samsung Exynos 5240 Octa processor official and it is based on an ARM Mali-T628 MP6 cores, and it features a 6 core GPU.
The newest Exynos processor is powered by four ARM Cortex®-A15™ processors at 1.8GHz with four additional Cortex-A7™cores at 1.3 GHz in a big.LITTLE processing implementation. This improves the CPU processing capability by 20 percent over the predecessor by optimizing the power-saving design.
In addition, the multiple image compression (MIC) IP block inside this System-on-Chip successfully lowers the total system power when bringing pictures or multimedia from memory to display panel. This feature results in maximizing the usage hours of mobile devices with a high-resolution display such as WQXGA (2500×1600), in particular when browsing the web or doing multimedia application requiring the frequent screen refresh.
