Multiple reports that made it online in the past few months claim that Samsung's next-generation Galaxy S flagship will come powered by two different processors. One variant is expected to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC while the other will allegedly pack the Samsung Exynos 8890 chip. Benchmark scores of this processor already leaked online a few times and they look impressive, but insiders claim that Samsung decided to spend some extra-time to improve its performance and efficiency even further.

According to ETNews and other South Korean publications, mass production of the Samsung Exynos 8890 has recently begun. The chip is a 14 nm FinFET part that features custom 64-bit Exynos M1 cores. Obviously, the company still has to confirm these rumors, but they will probably announce the chip close to its availability on the market.

Reports claim that half Samsung Galaxy S7 units will use the Snapdragon 820 chipset while the other half will use the Exynos 8890. Rumored features include a 20 MP camera with RAW support or a 12 MP one with a generous 1/2-inch sensor, as well as Cat. 12 LTE connectivity.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
