Meizu: Software Update To Enable True-octa Core On All Exynos 5s

By 01:59 Sat, 17 Jul 2021 Comments

Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa chipsets available now on the market can't actually utilize all eight cores at the same time. Both 5410 and 5420 chips can utilize either the four Cortex-A7 cores or the four Cortex-A15 at a time. Samsung has decided to fix this and yesterday the manufacturer announced its latest revision of the Exynos platform will support simultaneous operation of all eight cores.

So far, so good. Samsung will deploy this recent solution by the discontinue of this year. Yesterday's announcement left us wondering if the current generation Exynos 5 chips can acquire the extra capabilities as well, since Samsung didn't specify if it required changing anything on architecture level. Well today Meizu, which is the other Exynos-using manufacturer, chipped in and brought some fine news.

Since the upcoming Meizu MX3 will be relying on Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa chipset, the manufacturer is surely interested in the future of its upcoming flagship. So, it seems Meizu knows for sure this accurate octa-core capabilities are unlockable via a software update.

Meizu even tells us that the MX3 flagship will acquire such an update later this year.

If indeed this is the case, we guess all Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 owners who acquire the Exynos-based models should expect such an update in the upcoming months.
