Samsung has finally announced the arrival of the Exynos 2100, and it is just two days before the expected launch of the Galaxy S21 series. The Exynos 2100 is believed to feature eight cores built on a 5 nm process, with an ARM Cortex-X1 core the most powerful of the eight. The Exynos 2100 will go head-to-head with the Snapdragon 888 when the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra arrive next month.

Setting aside the absurdity of marketing a smartphone chipset in this way, Samsung has now confirmed that it will unveil the Exynos 2100 on January 12. Apparently, 'a whole new Exynos is coming', with Samsung seemingly emphasising that the Exynos 2100 will be a departure from the maligned Exynos 990.

The arrival of the Exynos 2100 will come 48 hours before the expected reveal of the Galaxy S21 series. Samsung will once again release Exynos and Qualcomm versions of its Galaxy S series, as recent leaks have shown. The Exynos 2100 is thought to be built on a 5 nm like the Exynos 1080. However, the Exynos 2100 will have eight ARM cores comprising of a Cortex-X1 performance core clocked at 2.9 GHz, three Cortex-A78 cores running at 2.8 GHz and four Cortex-A55 cores that will be limited to 2.4 GHz. The chipset is believed to have an ARM Mali-G78 GPU too and will be supported by at least 8 GB of RAM.
