XDA dev Max Weinbach spotted the Galaxy Note 10 Pro 5G model powered by the 7 nm Exynos 9825 SoC in Samsung's internal benchmark listings. Not much is known about the upcoming Exynos 9825 chip, except for the fact that it is built on the 7 nm EUV node that will also be used for Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC and Nvidia's Ampere GPUs.

Samsung is expected to launch the usual update for the Galaxy Note series in late August, but this year will bring two versions instead of one. Rumors and leaks point out that there will be a regular non-5G Note 10 version powered by either the Snapdragon 855 or the Exynos 9820 SoCs, while the Note 10 Pro 5G is supposed to get a more powerful SoC. Thanks to XDA dev Max Weinbach we now know that the SoC on the Pro 5G version is going to be the 7 nm Exynos 9825 SoC.

Weinbach claims that he is one of the 3 or 4 people to have access to Samsung’s internal benchmarking tool, and the Note 10 Pro 5G that has an SM-N976B model number popped up today in the benchmark lists as being powered by the Exynos 9825 SoC, which is rumored to be build using the same 7 nm EUV process used for the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and Nvidia’s Ampere GPUs. This new SoC should end up faster than the current Snapdragon 855, but we haven’t seen any leaked performance numbers for the time being. To put things into perspective, the 8 nm Exynos 9820 is just a smidge faster in single-core tests, but ~10% slower in multi-core tests compared to the 7 nm Snapdragon 855.

Besides the obvious 5G capabilities, the Note 10 Pro 5G will also feature UFS 3.0 storage, a 4,500 mAh battery with 25 W fast charging, and a large display with a punch-hole selfie camera in the upper mid area. It should also feature an updated S-Pen stylus, but it will also lack a 3.5 mm audio jack.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
