A mysterious Samsung device identified only as the TE4 has surfaced on the Rightware benchmark tool. It sports some very interesting specification details. The processor is identified as a 1.7GHz dual-core one and the GPU is listed as the Mali-T604. This suggests that the TE4 will be powered by Samsung’s new Exynos 5 Dual (5250) SoC, billed as “the world’s first A-15 Dual Core mobile CPU.”

The only other detail revealed is that the TE4 will sport a display offering a resolution of 1280 x 752.

With rumours earlier this week that Samsung was already hard at work on the Samsung Galaxy S IV, this could well be it. With little else to go on though, it is equally possible that the TE4 is a new Nexus device or a new tablet. One thing is clear: Samsung is already at work on a new generation of devices packing some impressive specifications.

Samsung this week reconfirmed that it is now sampling its Exynos 5250 system-on-chip (SoC) and remains on track to begin mass production in Q2 2012. The Exynos 5250 will initially be used in tablets but will eventually make its way into smartphones as well.

The Samsung Exynos 5250 incorporates ARM’s new 2GHz dual-core Cortex-A15 processor which promises to double the performance of the 1.5GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 SoC. It also features improved graphics performance (as much as 4 times better) and support for stereoscopic 3D displays and resolutions up to WQXGA (2560×1600).

There is no word yet on who aside from Samsung (if anyone) could use the Exynos 5250 in future devices.
