Last week Samsung Exynos posted an image on Twitter, which revealed that a new Exynos processor will be unveiled at CES 2014 on January 7th. The tweet sent out by Samsung Exynos didn't gave any details about the upcoming processor, but it is expected that Samsung will unveil its first 64-bit Exynos processor on that day. A new report from China suggests that the company may have two new chip versions in the works, which will be unveiled at the Las Vegas trade show in a few days.

These two new chips are, the Exynos 6, an evolution of Exynos 5, that's based on ARM chip architecture and the Exynos S, that's reportedly based on Samsung's own technology. According to MyDrivers, both Exynos 6 and Exynos S will come with eight cores and will be 64-bit processors. 

The Exynos 6 is reported to be based on ARM's Cortex-A50 architecture, which is said to include a quad-core Cortex-A57 cluster and a quad-core Cortex-A53 cluster. The Exynos 6 will be 1.53 times faster than Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 processor.
