Samsung’s take on Snapdragon 855 Plus

Samsung’s Exynos chipsets are one of its main strengths in the mobile space, giving the Korean company greater control over the hardware in its all-conquering smartphones. Now, the firm has announced a new flagship chipset (h/t: r/android), dubbed the Exynos 9825.

As the name suggests, the Exynos 9825 has plenty in common with the Exynos 9820 seen in the Galaxy S10 series. That means an octa-core CPU design featuring two custom Mongoose cores, two Cortex-A75 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores.

Other shared features include the Mali-G76 MP12 GPU, an NPU for machine learning tasks, Cat-20 LTE-A Pro connectivity, LPDDR4X support, UFS 3.0 storage compatibility, and 8K video recording.

Manufacturing process 7nm EUV 8nm LPP FinFET

There is one major difference between the Exynos 9825 and the older processor though, and that’s the manufacturing process. The new chipset is built on a 7nm EUV process, compared to the older SoC’s 8nm LPP finFET process.

A smaller manufacturing process generally results in better battery life, but EUV is also the foundation for future manufacturing processes. So the Exynos 9825 serves as a key product for Samsung’s chipset roadmap. Samsung also notes that the two Cortex-A75 cores in the new chipset offer higher clock speeds — we can therefore expect minor performance gains too.

Samsung’s reveal also comes a few hours before the company officially launches the Galaxy Note 10 series. The company traditionally uses Snapdragon chipsets for its flagship phones in the U.S. and several other markets, but uses Exynos processors for global variants.

We’ll have to wait and see if the firm offers the Exynos 9825 in one of the Galaxy Note 10 models. But if the company is using the Snapdragon 855 Plus (which is itself a minor upgrade over the Snapdragon 855), then it makes sense if the Exynos 9825 is used too.
