Samsung Exec Hints To A Quad-Core Exynos Chip, Distancing Themselves From Qualcomm For Its Upcoming Galaxy S III

Samsung is apparently giving Qualcomm the boot and looking to distance themselves from the major chip manufacture to start using their own next-gen quad-core Exynos CPU on the yet to be revealed Galaxy S III.  An unnamed Samsung exec spilled the beans when hinting to theKorea Times that the new flagship device will not include Qualcomm’s CPU.  The new Exynos chip will support LTE and WCDMA radios as Sammy attempts to head back to its roots (original Galaxy S devices utilized the Hummingbird and Exynos Chips).  The new AP looks like the for-mentioned 32nm chip which we learned of prior to MWC, sporting four A9 cores.  According to the unnamed exec, the devices are all ready to go and just need to be implemented into the handsets.  As of now, there’s no word on when the Galaxy S III will be revealed, but trust me, our eyes are peeled.  Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below.
