Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 To Feature A Modified SoC Developed By The Company
Galaxy Note 7 was always thought to feature beastly specifications but what we did not realize that aside from a Snapdragon 821 SoC, Samsung has intended to ship out a variant of its flagship phablet that is going to feature a modified version of the tech giant’s Exynos 8890 SoC. Here are all the details.
Galaxy Note 7 To Feature An Exynos 8893 – Here Are The Primary Differences Between This SoC And Exynos 8890
In terms of manufacturing process, Exynos 8893 is no different than an Exynos 8890 as they are both manufactured on the same 14nm FinFET architecture. However, where the clock speeds are taken into account, there is a hefty amount of difference between them as you will read shortly.
- Exynos 8893: 4 x Cortex-A53 running at 1.586GHz + 4 x Exynos M1 cores running at 2.7-2.8GHz
- Exynos 8890: 4 x Cortex-A53 running at 1.586GHz + 4 x Exynos M1 cores running at 2.29GHz
This will equate to much better performance although we have to say that this approach from Samsung will also end up consuming more battery life. However, we are confident that there is a way that the processor will be running at a speed of 2.29GHz and it will only boost its speed to that range when it is absolutely required.
Galaxy Note 7 will be available in the following storage models:
The flash memory will be based on the UFS 2.0 standard, meaning you’ll get faster read and write speeds. As for the different colors models, Galaxy Note 7 is expected to come in the following:
One of the most anticipated rumors is a dual-camera configuration. Aside from this, we reported that the upcoming device had its renders uploaded showing that the device features a curved display that practically melts to the side of the phone, giving you an illusion that the device is a bezel-less one. Now, the thing that is confusing us the most right now is what sort of chipset is going to be present inside Galaxy Note 7.
To top this, Galaxy Note 7 has also been reported to feature a massive 5.7-inch screen and IP68 certification, meaning that the smartphone is going to be waterproof till a certain depth. Additionally, the upcoming handset is expected to feature 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, because there needs to be some level of difference between this one and its smaller brothers. Furthermore, the incorporation of an iris scanner is also said to be a part of the smartphone’s configuration, and why would it not?
Apart from a fingerprint scanner, what better way to secure your device than with an extra security measure, and we know that we might be expecting too much from Samsung, but we are under the impression that the company’s payment service, Samsung Pay could somehow be integrated into the iris scanner, if there ever was such a security feature.
With a large screen size, Galaxy Note 7 will be able to accommodate a 4,000mAh battery, which is the same capacity present in a Galaxy S7 Active. Are you waiting to see what these beastly specs are capable of achieving once the smartphone arrives to the market? Let us know your thoughts immediately.
