According to a new report, courtesy of WCCFtech, Samsung might be gearing up to unveil three new Exynos chipsets for its upcoming smartphones. The Exynos 8890 among them will probably be the top of the line and is rumored to power up the Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone, at least in some markets. It is rumored that the US and China releases of S7 will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset.
The Exynos 8890 is reported to have a maximum clock speed of 2.3GHz and will be produced using 14nm technology. The chip is expected to launch sometime in the second quarter of 2016 to coincide with the launch of Galaxy S7.
The Exynos 7422, which is supposedly based on Cortex-A72 architecture, was earlier rumored to be powering up Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and is also among the new expected chipsets.
The third of the chipsets is the Exynos 7880 which is expected to use Cortex-A53 architecture for Galaxy A mid-range smartphone models. Both these Cortex based phones will be quad cores.
The Exynos 7422 and 7880 are expected to launch in the second half of 2016.
