Recent reports have revealed that the upcoming Exynos 9820 by Samsung will be built with 7nm FinFET process. Rumors have it that the SoC will be equipped with Samsung’s Mongoose 4 CPU. Popular leakster Ice Universe has today revealed the performance of the Mongoose 4 processor that will be present inside the Exynos 9820 would be more powerful than recently unveiled Cortex A76 by ARM.
The Cortex A76 can deliver a maximum processing speed of 3.30 GHz. However, according to the Chinese leakster, the Mongoose 4 will be far beyond A76 and also it will deliver better energy efficiency.
The upcoming 2018 iPhones will be powered by Apple A12. It is a 7nm chipset designed by the Cupertino company and mass produced by TSMC. The unannounced SoC was spotted last month on Geekbench benchmarking platform with an outstanding multi-core score of 13,000. If the performance of the Mongoose 4 is supposed to be far better than A76, it is likely that the Exynos 9820 chip may end up clocking close to the benchmarking scores of Apple A12. By the way, initial reports of A12 have revealed that it consumes 23 percent more energy than its predecessor. This issue will be fixed before the official unveiling of the new iPhones in September this year.
The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones that were unveiled earlier this year are powered by the Exynos 9810 SoC. The same chipset is expected to fuel the Galaxy Note 9 that will be arriving in Q3. The Exynos 9820 chipset may get official by the end of 2018 and the first phones to feature it could be the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus.
Rumors have it that Samsung may debut the Galaxy S10 duo at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 in Las Vegas, US. The CES 2019 tech trade show will take placed in January. The S10 phones are expected to debut earlier next year as the company’s first foldable phone may get unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 in February.
