Talking about the mass-production first, the new display will use the 'diamond-like PenTile' pixel arrangement, similar to the Galaxy S4 and the Note 3, where green pixels are interleaved with alternating red and blue pixels, with each red and blue pixel shaped like a diamond for increased sharpness and pixel density. 

If the news in indeed true, then the Galaxy S5 will have a massive pixel density of 559 PPI. There is no way to confirm this report, so its better you take it with a pinch of salt.

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S5 in March/April with a metal body, Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.5GHz probably, 3GB RAM, 16MP camera and Android 4.4 KitKat. 

Coming to Samsung Exynos, the tweet does not give any details about the upcoming processor. But this could be the 64-bit Exynos chip supposedly being developed by Samsung for its upcoming Galaxy S series smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S5.

The new chip is expected to use Samsung's Heterogeneous Multi-Processing that can turn the Exynos 5 into a true octa-core chip with all 8 cores active at once. Currently, the Exynos 5 octa-core processor present in Galaxy S4 allows only one set of four cores to be active at a single time.
