Successor to Samsung Galaxy S III may be powered by Cortex-A15 processor

Amidst the rumors of Samsung working on the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S III and subsequent denials, one thing is certain. Somewhere in Samsung’s organization, work is underway on Samsung’s next flagship device. Could it be a device codenamed “Samsung TE4?” Some sources seem to think so after a device by that name was discovered by Rightware featuring some unique hardware.

According to the information found by Rightware, the Samsung TE4 is powered by the Exynos 5 Dual processor, which mates a 1.7 GHz dual-core Cortex-A15 cpu with a Mali-T604 gpu. We have been waiting for Samsung to announce a device that will use this combination, but it does not look like anything will hit the market in 2012. Given that this mysterious Samsung TE4 device is being benchmarked, could it be on track for a 2013 release? If so, will it be the next top of the line device to be released by Samsung?
