Samsung will be making an Exynos variant of the Galaxy S8, just as always

17 February, 2017 Samsung


There were a few rumors around that were claiming that Samsung won't be making an Exynos variant of the Galaxy S8 this year. The rumors found some solid ground when it became clear that Samsung has exclusive rights to hog the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip till the S8 is released in April. As the Korean company is developing the chips for Qualcomm on their own 10nm FinFET process this year, the suggestion that Samsung may ditch the Exynos series when it comes to the Galaxy S8, did not seem that farfetched then. However, Samsung has put those rumors and speculations to rest with their latest teaser about the Exynos series of processors.


The Twitter post simply states, "Discover cloud 9 with Exynos" - coming soon.


This could imply that instead of the rumored Exynos 8895 chip, Samsung will be launching its 10nm series 9 Exynos chips with the S8 this year. The Mali-G71 GPU which will probably be included in the SoC, is designed to handle 4K and VR with ease. Whether the performance can match up to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or not is something that remains to be seen. Going by the history books, Samsung's flagship Exynos processors have always been almost as powerful as their Snapdragon counterparts, but with better power-efficiency.
