Samsung’s VP of System LSI marketing said about the new Exynos processor:

The quad-core processor offers phenomenal multitasking abilities surpassing any single or dual application processor. Since all the cores must share a single battery, the power management and efficiency in the limited battery capacity are indispensable for mobile computing devices. Given the diverse functionalities consumers are demanding from their mobile devices today, the Exynos 4 Quad meets those high-performance needs while keeping power consumption very low.

“The application processor is a crucial element in providing our customers with a PC-like experience on mobile devices,” explains Hankil Yoon, Senior VP of Product Strategy Team at Samsung, “Samsung’s next Galaxy device, which will be officially announced soon, offers uncompromised performance and ground breaking multitasking features, thanks to Exynos 4 Quad’s powerful performance and efficient energy management technology.”

Sammy says it’s shopping the new processor around to other handset manufacturers (like Meizu), noting that the Exynos 4 Quad is pin-to-pin compatible with the Exynos 4 Dual (the ones behind the Galaxy S II and Note), which gives designers the ability to update product designs with minimal costs.
