Samsung has been in the smartphone SoC business since the Galaxy S days, rivalling the likes of Qualcomm, Intel, Texas Instruments, and MediaTek. The company’s Exynos chipsets have improved a lot from their initial days, be it in terms of raw power or efficiency and features. The Exynos 7420 processor, which has been used in the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy Note 5, outdid the Snapdragon 810, earning a praise for itself from experts worldwide. Now, the company is working on a bunch of new processors for its upcoming mobile devices.

According to the information that we’ve received till now, Samsung is working on at least three new Exynos processors; the Exynos 7422, the Exynos 7880, and the Exynos 8890. The Exynos 7422 is a minor upgrade over the Exynos 7420, which is already being used in a bunch of devices including the Galaxy S6 trio and the Galaxy Note 5. The Exynos 7880 is a brand new chipset that is expected to be used in premium mid-range devices like the Galaxy A series smartphones. The Exynos 8890 on the other hand is expected to be equipped in the Galaxy S7.

Earlier, we reported that the Exynos 8890 features Mongoose (a.k.a Exynos M1) custom CPU cores, which are identical to Apple’s Typhoon and Qualcomm’s Kyro cores. Samsung has started developing and testing these cores for maximum performance along with power efficiency. With this chipset, Samsung will be among the elite few SoC brands who have managed to develop custom CPU cores. Last week, we reported that the Galaxy S7 might come in three different processor variants, and that Samsung is already optimising the Exynos 8890 for better performance.
