The Exynos 8890 will be the first premium chipset built in-house and from the ground up by Samsung. The SoC integrates an LTE modem and 12-core ARM Mali-T880 GPU.

The new infographic summarizes key features of the Exynos 8 Octa 8890 that was announced in November 2015 from the South Korean manufacturer. The SoC, codenamed Mongoose, will incorporate the 64-bit ARMv8 architecture and should show a performance boost of roughly 30 percent compared to the existing Exynos Octa 7 7420 flagship SoC. Power demands have also been improved by 10 percent whilst simultaneously integrating an LTE Cat 12/13 modem.

On the graphics side, the new SoC will carry the 12-core ARM Mali-T880 for a theoretical performance boost of up to 80 percent and a power reduction of roughly 40 percent compared to the Mali-T760. The Mali-T880 was designed with GUI-intensive software, mobile 3D games, UHD, and virtual reality applications in mind.

While it's still early, we are fulling expecting the yet-to-be-announced Galaxy S7 to sport the new Exynos SoC. More will likely be revealed come MWC next month in Barcelona.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
