The anticipation for Samsung’s next big thing continues to heighten. There’s under a month before Samsung officially unveils the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and the rumors of the Samsung Galaxy S10 are coming in just as fast.
After reporting a slew of rumors and leaks, it seems like another leak has emerged claiming that the Samsung Galaxy S10 could pack a new SoC manufactured by Samsung. This new SoC from Samsung would be called the Exynos 9820 SoC succeeding the Exynos 9810 that we saw in the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. According to Ice Universe, this new SoC will use the 2 + 2 + 4 DynamIQ architecture. It’s made up of small, medium and large cores, each bringing their own advantages. The two larger cores would be 2 x M4 cores, the two mid-range cores would consist of two A75/A76 cores and lastly, the last four cores would consist of 4 x A55 cores. All four of these cores would aid in the power efficiency of the device.
Since the big.Little architecture has been wandering around for a while, Samsung’s new take on actually including two medium cores has to be due to the efficiency of their SoCs. Afterall, Samsung had recently received quite the amount of criticism for their Exynos powered S9 and S9 Plus.
This launch would be interesting indeed as Samsung approaches its 10th anniversary with the launch of the S10 next year.
