No doubt, Samsung is one of world’s greatest manufacturer of electronics and gadget. After “mastering” the smartphone and phablet market, this time Samsung also presents a breakthrough for the components of the “core” of the mobile devices, it’s 8 CORE processor! & named Samsung Exynos 5 OCTA. It’s not a new thing for Samsung to present Samsung’s own processor, but a breakthrough in the number of cores that reached 8 is a great breakthrough and of course it’s a good news for the gadget lovers at the beginning of 2013.
