Samsung working on three major device projects and quad-core Exynos 5440 SoC?

SamsungThat mobile device manufacturers are constantly developing a next generation of devices goes without saying. So, it should not come as any surprise that Samsung is working on the next round of devices. According to SamMobile, it has at least three major projects currently underway.

The most interesting appears to be “Project J.” It appears to be none other than the next generation of Galaxy S smartphones, including what is likely to be the Galaxy S IV. Few details are available about the next flagship smartphone but it is expected to sport a quad-core processor, the latest version of Android, a 5-inch full HD AMOLED display, and a 13MP camera.

Also on tap is the “new basic Galaxy Note II,” a lower-spec version of the Galaxy Note II [product information]. Intended for Europe, it will retain a large display but will not have S-Pen capabilities and could also lose the Super AMOLED display.

On the tablet side, Samsung may be looking to take on the ASUS Transformer with a new 13.3-inch tablet wtih optional QWERTY keyboard dock. Samsung is still evaluating what operating system to use for this new tablet.

2013 could also see Samsung unveil a quad-core Cortex-A15-based Exynos 5440 SoC. Clock speed and other details remain unknown but it appears to be the quad-core equivalent of the Samsung dual-core Exynos 5250 which powers the Google Nexus 10 [product information].

It looks like Samsung will have an exciting 2013!
