Samsung allegedly testing a new Exynos processor

Samsung Exynos 8 Octa 8890 successor is already being tested

The unannounced Exynos 8895 chipset has been spotted on Indian import tracker Zauba, so it is certain that Samsung is working on it.

Testing a product does not necessarily end up with that product making it to the market, but devices and hardware parts spotted on Zauba usually hit the market in some way. This time, what appears to be a successor of Samsung's high-end Exynos 8890 processor has been spotted on the Indian import/export tracker.

Unfortunately, there is not much information to be extracted from the Zauba database entry that reveals the Exynos 8895 chipset. According to it, Samsung has imported two boards in India for testing, each of them powered by the Exynos 8895. This chip is expected to hit the market much later since the next in line should be the Snapdragon 830.

Some rumors claimed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 would come out with an Exynos 8893 SoC, but that remains to be seen. The next-gen phablet is expected to show up next week, so stay tuned. Although it is unlikely, Samsung might unveil something about its next-gen processors at the launch event as well.

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.
