Once again found on Weibo, we have exciting news for Samsung fans. According to IceUniverse, the next Samsung SoC will be a beast of chip which will take mobile computing to a whole new league with a maximum clock speed of 4GHz. In fact, Samsung has probably even begun experimenting with the 10nm chipset already.


Apart from the expected huge boost in performance, the new chips will also be significantly more power efficient than the ones we have right now. The Cortex-A53 cores are tested at a clock speed of 2.7GHz and the custom cores are being run at 4GHz in the 8895 (presumed name for the chipset). This is quite a bump, considering that the Exynos 8890 was capped at 3.0GHz while testing.



Before you actually start expecting the next flagship from Samsung to sport a 4GHz CPU, know that the final release will in all probability, have a lowered clock speed to ensure thermal efficiency and better battery life in everyday situations. Speaking of thermal efficiency, it was also reported that the Exynos will once again be more power efficient than the Snapdragon 830. This conclusion was reached after the Samsung made chip managed to run at 4GHz by consuming roughly the same amount of power as the Qualcomm chip needed to run at 3.6GHz. This isn't really a surprise if you consider that the American versions of the S7 series of smartphones with the SD 820 were found to be significantly less power efficient than their global counterparts that utilized the Exynos 8890.

The Exynos 8895 SoC which will power the upcoming Galaxy S8 has now been made official by Samsung. This is what Ben Hur, Vice President of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics had to say regarding the next Exynos chip.


"In addition to being built on the most advanced 10nm FinFET process technology, the new Exynos 9 Series 8895 incorporates Samsung's cutting-edge technologies including a 2nd generation custom CPU, gigabit LTE modem, and more. With industry leading technologies like VPU, the Exynos 8895 will drive the innovation of next generation smartphones, VR headsets, and automotive infotainment system."

The Exynos 8890 is still one of the most powerful mobile chips in the market at the moment, but the octa-coreExynos 8895 will provide 27% better performance at 40% better power-efficiency. The Mali-G71 GPU which will accompany the octa-core processor will be powerful enough to handle VR at 4K resolution, along with a multi-format codec for 4K video recording at 120fps support.


We have to admit, that sounds amazing and we can't wait to see the Exynos 8895 in action when the Galaxy S8 comes out in April.

The details about the Galaxy S8 series and the two chips which will be powering the flagship handsets when they are launched in March are now out and about. Although most of the info regarding the S8 is based on leaks and rumors, the Exynos 8895 and the Qualcomm SD 835 have already been unveiled by the manufacturers. Therefore, let's do a mini comparison in-between them to see if any one of them can be called better than the other.


CPU Cores
SD 835: Kryo 280
Exynos 8895: Custom cores + Cortex A53


CPU Configuration
SD 835: 4 x 2.45 GHz, 4 x 1.9 GHz
Exynos 8895: 4 x 2.5 GHz, 4 x 1.7 GHz


GPU
SD 835: Adreno 540
Exynos 8895: Mali-G71 MP20


RAM
SD 835: 2 x 32-bit LPDDR4X 1866MHz
Exynos 8895: LPDDR4X


Camera
SD 835: 16MP Dual, 32MP Single
Exynos 8895: 28MP+16MP Dual, 28MP Single


Video Recording
SD 835: 4K @ 30FPS
Exynos 8895: 4K @ 120FPS


Video Playback
SD 835: 4K UHD @ 60fps
Exynos 8895: 4K UHD @ 120fps


Flash Storage
SD 835: eMMC 5.1 / UFS 2.1
Exynos 8895: eMMC 5.1 / UFS 2.1


Modem
SD 835: LTE Cat. 16 4CA 1 Gbps down/LTE Cat. 13 2CA 150 Mbps up
Exynos 8895: LTE Cat. 16 5CA 1 Gbps down/LTE Cat. 13 2CA 150 Mbps up


Charging
SD 835: Quick Charge 4.0, WiPower
Exynos 8895: Samsung Adaptive Fast Charge, Qi, PMA


As you can probably see, it's hard to declare a clear overall winner, although the Mali-G71 MP20 GPU seems to be more capable compared to the Adreno 540 in terms of video recording and video playback. Everything else seems more or less neck-to-neck.

Apart from the Snapdragon 835 and Adreno 540 powered versions of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ that have been launched in the US, Canada, China and Japan, the two smartphones also have an international version for all other countries, which is being powered by Samsung's in-house chip, the Exynos 8895 CPU and the Mali-G71 MP20 GPU. According to multiple test results made public by GSMArena, it seems that the Mali-G71 GPU is quite a bit more powerful than the Adreno 540 as the former manages to beat the latter in almost all benchmarking tests. It should be noted that both the SoCs are made by Samsung on their own 10nm FinFET process and have almost identical features and capabilities.



You will find the following screenshots of the test results to be self-explanatory, but it was a bit surprising to find that just like last year, the Exynos CPU is faster than the Snapdragon 835 this year around as well; at least in most tests that is. The Qualcomm chip managed to win back a few as well. The most interesting observation according to me is how the iPhone 7 plus still manages to mop the floor with all Android handsets when it comes to single-core performance in both GeekBench 3 and 4. When it comes to AnTuTu, the iPhone 7 Plus was beaten by the Galaxy S8+ Exynos version, but not even by a 1000 points! The SD 835 powered S8+ on the other hand, lost to both its Exynos counterpart and the iPhone 7 Plus significantly. Check out GSM Arena for the rest of the test results in detail.
