8nm Exynos 9630 rumored to feature in 2020 Samsung Galaxy A51 and A71 mid-range devices
Samsung is said to be developing the Exynos 9630 SoC to power its upcoming mid-range Galaxy A-series phones such as the Galaxy A51 and the Galaxy A71, according to a report by Dutch site Galaxy Club. The Exynos 9630 will succeed the Exynos 9610 that we saw in phones such as the Galaxy A50 this year.
While the Exynos 9610 is fabbed on a 10nm process, the Exynos 9630 is expected to make the transition to 8nm bringing along power consumption and performance improvements. We do not have much information about the Exynos 9630 at the moment apart from its internal codename S5E9630. In all likelihood, we might see this chip make its debut sometime in 2020 with the Galaxy A51 or A71. Whether this SoC would bring 5G support to mid-range handsets or not is anybody's guess at this point.
In other news, the flagship Exynos 9825 was seen in several leaked benchmarks recently and is expected to be the Galaxy Note 10's de facto chip even in North America. The Exynos 9825 shows good single-core gains over the Snapdragon 855+ although, it still has a disadvantage when it comes to multi-core performance.
