Samsung is expected to announce its much-anticipated Galaxy Note 9 in a few months, and it should run Samsung’s current octa-core, Exynos 9810 SoC according to a device spotted on Geekbench some days ago. And yet, Samsung is not standing still. Even as we speak, the Galaxy S10 processor for 2019 is already in production. According to leakster Ice Universe, the Galaxy S10 processor, the Exynos 9820, could prove to be a future beast.
Galaxy S10 successor will run on Exynos M4 architecture
Ice Universe leaked an ARM support sheet for the “Samsung Exynos M4.” The Exynos M3 architecture is behind the production of the Exynos 9810, so it appears as though the Exynos 9820 is indeed the next-generation successor with next-generation SoC architecture. Ice says that the Exynos M4 performance “will be far beyond Cortex-A76” with “better energy efficiency.”
The leakster compares the Exynos 9810 with the Galaxy S10 processor. “Exynos 9810’s multi-core can reach 11000+, I think 9820 will exceed 13000,” Ice says. The reference here is to the Exynos M4 architecture SoC in 2019. This is the multi-core score at Geekbench. Multi-core scores refer to the sheer raw power of the processor when all processor cores are in use. All smartphones live within the single-core scores, which gives the general performance of a smartphone. For more intensive tasks, however, the multi-core score will prove essential. There’s no word on the single-core Geekbench score yet.
Galaxy S10 processor will run on 7nm FinFET
The Galaxy S10 processor could do what Samsung couldn’t accomplish in the Galaxy S9. The Exynos 9810 SoC runs on 10-nanometer FinFET technology because of some technical complications regarding 7nm FinFET. The Galaxy S10 SoC should have 7-nanometer FinFET, proving as energy efficient as Ice Universe believes it will be.
What we know about the Galaxy S10
The Galaxy S10 processor could prove beastly, but other rumors about the upcoming flagship could also prove as juicy. Codenamed “Beyond,” the Galaxy S10 will feature an in-display fingerprint reader (similar to Vivo’s X21) and could be the Korean giant’s first smartphone ever to feature a triple rear camera setup. The Galaxy S10 will arrive with Android P, Google’s upcoming major system update, and have 6GB of RAM (or 8GB) and 64GB of internal storage. While much of the world will see Samsung’s Exynos 9820 as their Galaxy S10 successor, the United States and China will probably see Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor instead.
A juicy rumor regarding the Galaxy Note 9 says that Samsung could unveil an 8GB RAM, 512GB storage variant. This could have a positive impact upon just how beastly the Galaxy S10 could prove to be.
