In the flagship segment, which says new smartphone model says new processor. This will be true with the Samsung Galaxy S21. And the South Korean giant has just formalized the new chip in question.
It’s hard today to imagine a new high-end smartphone launch without it incorporating a new processor. Samsung , like Apple, manufactures its own mobile chips. To go along with its highly anticipated Galaxy S21, the South Korean giant has been working hard on the Exynos 2100 chip. This one has only just been revealed.
Samsung formalizes its Exynos 2100 chip
The Samsung Galaxy S21 will be officially announced in the coming days and it’s a safe bet that at least one of the models will use the Qualcomm chip Snapdragon 888. That being said, as has been customary for Samsung for many years now, there is little doubt that a variant will also be offered with an Exynos chip.
Samsung has just made official this new chip, the Exynos 2100. And this is a very important launch for the South Korean giant insofar as it is the first chip from Samung manufactured in 5 nm. This means that, in theory at least, it should be more powerful and more efficient than its predecessors which were engraved with a less fine process.
Logically increased performance, and 5 nm engraving
This will also be the Samsug chip to integrate a 5G modem that is compatible with 5G sub-6GHz and 5G mmWave. In other words, if the giant decides to sell its chip to other companies, this could well compete with Qualcomm.
Samsung says that with this Exynos 2100 chip, you can expect 20% more energy management than its predecessors. Said chip will also be more powerful, the use of a Cortex-X1 core offering a performance boost of 30% in multicore. In addition, the chip has an ARM Mali G78 GPU on board.
Unsurprisingly, on paper, this Exynos 2100 chip is very, very promising, but we will have to wait for the tests in real conditions to gauge its real performance compared to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. To be continued!
