A set of leaked documents reveals that the next-gen Galaxy S flagship uses a 10 nm Exynos SoC that integrates a Mali-G71 GPU.

A recent scandal turned out into a source of interesting leaks. A Samsung official was arrested in South Korea while trying to steal information related to the company's 10 nm and 14 nm technology, and the official report also revealed that Samsung Galaxy S8 should launch in 2017 with a 10 nm SoC under the hood.

SamMobile also bumped into more detailed information, so according to their souces, the next-gen Galaxy S flagship will use the Exynos 8895 processor, a chip that uses the new ARM Mali-G71 graphics adapter. This new GPU is expected to be almost two times as fast as the ARM Mali-T880 MP12 currently used by the Exynos 8890-powered Galaxy S7. The benchmark results on GFXBench also prove that this new GPU is faster than the one inside the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830.

Rumors already public mention that the upcoming Galaxy S8 might have a 4K display for an improved VR experience. Unfortunately, all these should be taken with a grain of salt for now, since Samsung has not confirmed anything yet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
