After the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung will start working on the eventual launch of the Galaxy S10, to make sure that everything goes smoothly and according to plan. While Qualcomm is also working on the Snapdragon 855, Samsung will also be working on its own Exynos equivalent chipset, which we have come to know is going to be called Exynos 9820.
Right now, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ feature the Exynos 9810 processor, one of the fastest chipsets present in Android flagships at the moment. The Galaxy S10 (or Galaxy X), as rumours have suggested, is going to be launched in 2019 and should take advantage of Samsung’s latest and greatest silicon chipset.
Samsung Exynos 9820: Could Use 7nm Process
As Qualcomm’s manufacturing partner TSMC is going to be making the Snapdragon 855 under the 7nm FinFET architecture, Samsung’s own fabrication foundries will start to work on the Exynos 9820. If Qualcomm’s upcoming SoC (system on chip) is indeed going to be made on the next-generation manufacturing process, then Samsung cannot possibly make a compromise on this angle.
The 7nm FinFET architecture is going to be far more advanced than the 10nm FinFET one and it is also going to be a more expensive one. However, the advantages that you will be able to get and witness from the Exynos 9820 once it is found in the Galaxy S10 are going to be phenomenal. The Exynos 9810’s processor can achieve speeds of up to 2.90GHz on the performance cores.
The Exynos 9820 being made on the 7nm FinFET process means that Samsung will be able to increase the clock speeds of its next-generation Mongoose performance cores (Exynos M4?) without having to worry too much about the rising temperatures. Needless to say, the Exynos 9820 might actually be able to achieve speeds of 3.00GHz on the Mongoose performance cores and we might also see the first in-house GPU from Samsung found in the Galaxy S10 instead of using one from ARM.
The Exynos 9820 holds a lot of possibilities when it comes to sheer performance, battery life, 5G connectivity, augmented reality and several others. Unfortunately, this is all the information we can scrape at this time and if more leaks come through, we’ll update you.
