Samsung Galaxy S10 launch is around the corner, and this smartphone has been largely expected to be powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor in the US market. In other markets such as India, the smartphone will have the company’s very own Exynos 9820 chipset built on the 8nm process. Now, a person has claimed that Samsung could introduce the Exynos 9825 processor in the second half of 2019. This would mean that the successor of Galaxy Note 9 could be launching with the new Exynos processor integrated, which will give a big advantage to it in comparison to the S10 series.
The tipster Ice Universe has taken to Weibo and made such a claim. He said that Exynos 9825 processor could most likely be introduced in the second half of 2019. He didn’t share an exact timeline but said that the company manages to launch it before the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, it might as well be integrated into the smartphone. This will give the Galaxy Note 10 a big advantage over their Galaxy S10, that is being expected to be powered by the Exynos 9820 SoC. The chipset on its own is extremely powerful, and it has been built on the 8nm process and hasn’t been made with Samsung’s 7nm ultraviolet lithography.
In comparison, Apple’s A12 processor and the Huawei Kirin 980 processor have both been built on TSMC’s 7nm process. The upcoming Exynos 9825, if it had been built on the 7nm process would be able to compete with the Apple and Huawei SoCs. In either case, no official word has come from Samsung on the development of any kind.
In addition to this, the Exynos 9825 will also be expected to have a full 5G system-on-chip integration, instead of the attached Exynos 5100 modem which is being expected to be packed in the Exynos 9820 processor.
