Exynos 8895 Leaked in Two Chipset Variants With Different Graphic Chips
We’ve heard great things about the Exynos 8895, especially about the part where it would come running ARM’s powerful GPU. Now, according to the latest leak from China, it looks the upcoming SoC is going to be divided into a total of two variants and it looks like they could be dedicated towards different smartphones. It is possible that one of them is going to be incorporated inside the Galaxy S8, while the second one will be used in the Note 8.
Upcoming Exynos SoC Expected to Be Named Exynos 8895M and Exynos 8895V – 10nm FinFET Process Will Result in Higher Clock Speeds
The spreadsheet comparing the different specs of Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 has popped up in China (via Sammobile) and it shows quite a few differences between the two variants. First off, according to the data sheet, Samsung’s high-end SoC will be named as follows:
- Exynos 8895M
- Exynos 8895V
Out of the two, Exynos 8895M is going to be the better performer as the M2 cores are going to be running at 2.5GHz (2.3GHz on the 8895V), while the Cortex-A53 are both going to be running at the same frequency. While we are not hinting at anything, it is possible that to further provide some differences between the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8, the latter will be outfitted with the faster processor. In addition, the faster processor will also get the advantage of running ARM’s Mali-G71 GPU. While both SoCs will be running this graphics chip, the faster variant will be running more cores, so it will be interesting to see how this impacts performance as a result.
As for the rest of the information, it looks like the chipsets will provide support for LPDDR4X RAM as well as UFS 2.1 storage, resulting in speedier RAM and better read and write results from the internal memory. The faster internal memory will also make the smartphone more responsive, which is the end game that users are attempting to view after shelling out a ton of money on a flagship. The release period of the Exynos chipsets is scheduled for Q2 2017, but here’s something very interesting that you probably didn’t catch up on.
It states that during the Q3, 2017 period the Shannon 359 modem would be rolled out and for those that are unfamiliar with what that is, it will provide support for just about all the network basebands in the world, which are as follows:
This means that when the Note 8 is released, the Exynos 8895 could go through some design changes that would allow the Shannon 359 modem to become compatible, but it doesn’t look like the Galaxy S8 is going to be receiving the golden treatment since it will be announced way before that. As always, we’ll be providing you with more updates on the matter, so remember to take this info with a grain of salt.
