Samsung’s Exynos 8890 Specifications Claim Top Notch Frequency For Galaxy S7


A couple of good months lie ahead for mobile fans all around as we can expect the annual cycle of smartphone and hardware upgrades from manufacturers all around to start once again. At the top of things next year will be Samsung, a manufacturer that has seen a mixed amount of popularity and improvements over the current year. The Korean electronics giant is expected to have a rather interesting portfolio for 2016, particularly in terms of chipsets and today we've managed to get some more information about the company's upcoming Exynos 8890.

Samsung's Top-Tier Exynos 8890 To Achieve Frequencies Of Up To 2.3GHz Claim Sources

After having managed to establish a dominating position in the mobile chipset world this year, Samsung seems all ready to step things up a notch in 2016. The company's 14nm FinFET for mobile processors has been adopted quite a few companies out there, with the likes of Apple and even Qualcomm having chosen Samsung and its facilities for their top of the line SoCs. With even Huawei now rumored to be looking towards Samsung, the Korean manufacturer should be quite happy at its progress this year.

In fact, when it comes to Samsung's Galaxy S7 flagship smartphone, expected to be launched next year, we've been hearing some rather interesting rumors recently. One of these claims that the smartphone will be coming with three variants this time around that are Samsung's Exynos 8890, Exynos 7422 and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820. Its the Exynos 8890 that's popped up today at the far East with the processor to allegedly come with some top tier operating frequencies.

According to sources, the Exynos 8890 will be able to achieve top frequencies of 2.3GHz, which when compared to some of today's mobile chipsets are quite impressive indeed. Given that the Exynos 7420 comes with a top frequency of 2.1GHz, the big.LITTLE configuration of Cortex A72 and A53 cores on the 8890 should prove to be even better at handling complex applications and multimedia playback at higher frequencies.

But if you're eager to experience the Exynos 8890 on Samsung's Galaxy S7, you might not be able to get your hands on the processor. Our information suggests that Samsung's going to differentiate the processors on a geographical basis, with US and Chinese users getting the Snapdragon 820 version of the Galaxy S7 and Korean/European markets getting the Exynos 8890 variant of the smartphones. But there's plenty of time till the device's actual launch so things might change. Stay tuned and let us know what you think in the comments section.
