Samsung has reportedly started testing its next-generation mobile processor and if reports are to be believed, it’s an absolute beast. The Exynos 8895 is said to be built on the 10nm process with a 30 percent increase in performance compared to the Exynos 8890. Test batches of this processor are reportedly hitting staggering peak speeds of 4GHz though it’s likely that the peak will be capped for retail handsets.
Power consumption becomes a concern with faster processors but the 10nm process promises both a boost in speed and power efficiency. The Exynos 8895 is said to have the same power consumption at peak 4GHz as the Snapdragon 830 at 3.6GHz, it may also be sustainable in thermal efficiency meaning that overheating will not be a major concern. Nothing has been officially confirmed by Samsung about its next-generation processor so take all of this information with a grain of salt. What we can predict is that the company’s next high-end chip is likely going to debut with the Galaxy S8 early next year.
