We all know that the current Samsung devices that are running on Exynos 5 Octa chipsets can’t actually utilize all eight cores at the same time. Both 5410 and 5420 chips can only use the four Cortex-A7 cores or the four Cortex-A15 at a time. Now Samsung has decided to fix this and yesterday the manufacturer announced its latest revision of the Exynos platform that will support simultaneous operation of all eight cores. Samsung didn’t specify if this needs some hardware changes as well but today Meizu announced some good news – that this true octa-core capabilities are unlockable via a software update. Meizu even said that their MX3 flagship will get such an update later this year. If this is indeed the case then we can expect that the Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note 3 will also get this update in the upcoming months.
