Samsung’s latest Exynos 8895 chipset could power the Galaxy S8
Samsung just unveiled its latest mobile processor, the Exynos 9 Series 8895. The Exynos 8895 is similar to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, which is built on the 10nm process technology. Compared to 14nm process technology, the Exynos 8895 delivers up to 27% higher performance and 40% less power consumption.
There are four custom designed CPU cores and another four Cortex A53 cores with the Mali G71 GPU in this Exynos 8895. It is capable of supporting video recording and playback at a maximum resolution of 4K at 120fps, artifical intelligence and deep learning. It also has a separate processing unit for security solutions including iris and fingerprint recognition.
There is a gigabit LTE modem embedded with the processor which supports 5 carrier aggregation, download speeds of up to 1Gbps and upload speeds of up to 150Mbps.
As the Exynos 8895 processor is currently in mass production, we can expect Samsung to use it for the Galaxy S8 handsets. However, some of the Galaxy S8 models will be using the Snapdragon 835 chipsets.
