Samsung is internally working on an Exynos 9610 successor called the Exynos 9630 to power its next generation mid-range Galaxy A51 and A71 smartphones. The Exynos 9630 is expected to be fabbed on the 8nm process and could bring in improvements to power consumption and performance over the current generation.

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.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
