Remember the “Adonis”? It was a rumored SoC Samsung is allegedly working on, to be reportedly included on the Galaxy S IV, that appears to be a quad-core 28nm ARM15 system-on-a-chip. Well, according to recent information the “Adonis” might turn out to be the Exynos 5440 SoC.
Whether it will be the one responsible for the next Galaxy S flagship or not is yet unknown. However, the new chip will apparently be joining the currently existing dual-core Exynos 5250 that utilizes the Cortex-A15 architecture. According to Samsung’s Kernel Git page, the Exynos 5440 is a quad-core SoC based on the same technology. No other details are available in the document, except the mention that the “patch adds support for EXYNOS5440 SoC which is including ARM Cortex-A15 Quad cores.”
