Leak suggests that Samsung will launch three more Exynos SoCs in 2021
A new leak from Ice Universe tells us that Samsung plans to release three new Exynos chipsets in 2021. We've already heard about one of them, the Exynos 2200, which is expected to launch with an AMD Radeon GPU. The remaining SoCs appear to be successors of the massively-popular Exynos 1080 and the entry-level Exynos 850.
However, Galaxyclub.nl was the first to unearth the potential Exynos 850 successor. That, combined with Ice Universe's leak, tells us that it could be called the Exynos 851. On the other hand, the Exynos 1080 successor is set to arrive as the Exynos 1200. Unlike the Exynos 2200 which is expected to power an ARM-based laptop, the Exynos 851 and Exynos 1200 will likely be earmarked for smartphones only. If the Exynos 1080 release is anything to go by, both chips have a high probability of remaining exclusive to the Chinese market for a few months.
We found out earlier that the Exynos 2200 could be launched in June 2021. Samsung could also take that opportunity to reveal the Exynos 851 and Exynos 1200 alongside it. While the former will almost certainly come with an integrated 5G modem, we can't say the same about the latter. It would be ideal if the Exynos 851 also offered 5G connectivity, as it would allow Samsung to take the fight to Qualcomm and MediaTel's low-cost 5G chipsets.
