While smartphones are getting better and better, the chips under the hood are also getting stronger. And the last known leak from the leak The icy universe Exynos 2100 may suggest that it is more powerful than Snapdragon 875.
If you live under the rock, Samsung recently unveiled the Exynos 1080 chipset. It has all the bells and whistles you would need on a powerful smartphone.
To give you some brevity about it, the Samsung Exynos 1080 chipset is based on the 5nm EUV process which also comes with 5G support. SoC is an octa-core processor with a 4 + 3 + 1 core configuration.
Moreover, Samsung’s chipset comes with support for high refresh rate displays. An important feature of the Exynos 1080 chipset is that it can support a camera sensor of up to 200 megapixels.
At the moment, it is not clear which smartphone will come with a 200-megapixel sensor. Although it packs all the sheer power of the flagship SoC, it is still a mid-range chipset.
Notably, the Exynos 1080 is more powerful than the current Snapdragon 865, on paper at least. However, eyes are now closed on the Exynos 2100 which will be the company’s flagship processor.
The famous Ice Universe leak is completely confident that the Samsung Exynos 2100 will outperform the Snapdragon 875. It will be more powerful than Qualcomm’s latest SoC.
The Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 875 are expected to have the same base configuration
On the one hand, it is rumored that the Exynos 2100 will be more powerful than the Snapdragon 875, and both will have the same base configuration.
And if that turns out to be true, then the markets, where Samsung sells its phones powered by the Exynos chipset, will have some good things to say about Exynos processors.
The US and Chinese variants of Samsung flagships are usually powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets. Other areas have recently woken up about Exynos’ lower performance over its Snapdragon counterpart.
Their questions are also legitimate because the Korean manufacturer charges the same amount of money to a poorly powered flagship in some regions like India, which is, for many reasons, one of the biggest markets for Samsung.
Users in markets including Europe, India and the Middle East are treated with Exynos chipset devices, which so far have always remained weak compared to the Snapdragon variants.
Although the upcoming Exynos 2100 will not actually outperform the Snapdragon 875, the difference will not be stark as it will rely on the same basic configuration.
Besides, Exynos 2100 will be paired with GPU Mali-G78. The Snapdragon 875 will likely feature Adreno 660 GPU.
