“The Apple A6 actually appears to be the first “official” Cortex A15
SOC in mass production. Samsung Exynos 4 Dual and Quads are based on
Cortex A9, and the upcoming Exynos 5 Dual is Cortex A15 but not

product is more advanced than an A9, but it is not completely an A15
SOC. The Cortex A15 is a more powerful Cortex variant that can
achieve higher throughput and clockspeeds than previous A series
chips.”
