While we don't know what Samsung's next generation Galaxy smartphone is going to look like, we do know that its going to be running the Samsung Exynos 4 Quad processor. And that's a lot of power.

Its a 32nm, 1.4GHz quad core with twice the processing capability of the older Exynos 4 Dual. Best part is that it consumes 20 percent less power.

Samsung implemented an on-off switching as well as dynamic voltage and frequency scaling for each core. The processor will consume exactly the amount of power it needs under any given workload.

The new processor also sports a full HD 30 fps video hardware codec engine which enables 1080p video recording and playback.

The chip is already in production and will be used in the next Galaxy, scheduled to be announced in May.
