Lately, Samsung unveiled its latest flagship smartphones in the Galaxy S-series. This consists of the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus, and S21 Ultra. Depending on the region of availability, all three devices are powered by the company’s new Exynos 2100 chipset or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. As compared to the company’s Exynos 990, the Samsung Exynos 2100 is a big improvement. However, the Exynos 2100 chipset still lags behind when compared to the Apple A14 Bionic chipset that powers the Apple iPhone 12 lineup. Now, going by a report, the South Korean giant is working on a new chipset with an objective to beat the performance of the Apple A14 Bionic.
Apart from this, it is also being stated that this new smartphone chipset could be unveiled in the first half of this year. It is to be considered that the Samsung Exynos 2100 SoC is comparable to the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset when it comes to CPU test. However, in terms of GPU performance, it lags behind. Previously, it was reported that Samsung is working with AMD for augmenting the graphics performance on its upcoming Exynos chips. Its early performance results are also remarkable and put the chipset ahead of Apple A14 by a substantial margin.
Its suggested timeline for launch is likely to be somewhere in the second quarter of this year. Samsung appears to be on a path to alter the launch schedule of its chipsets. The fate of the Galaxy Note series remains undecided. This makes it interesting to see what device becomes the first one to be powered by this new upcoming chipset from Samsung.
