Samsung prepares several new Exynos processors
In the recent year Samsung has started using its own Exynos processors for the flagship smartphones that it offers. This was the case with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones as well as with the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ and there’s every chance that this trend will continue. The reason is simple – Samsung is working on three new Exynos chips that will come out in the near future.
The new chips will be called Exynos 7422, Exynos 7880 and Exynos 8890. The Exynos 7422 will retire the current Exynos 7420 processor that now powers Samsung’s flagships. The Exynos 7880 will serve smartphones in the Galaxy A line as well as other nice mid-range devices, while the Exynos 8890 will drive high-end devices such as the Galaxy S7, which is scheduled for early 2016. The chip will include several Mongoose cores that will provide both power and energy efficiency.
The new Samsung chips are expected in the next few months.
