BREAKING: Samsung’s new flagship Exynos chip goes official January 12!


Last updated: December 18th, 2020 at 13:33 UTC+02:00

Samsung has revealed that its new flagship Exynos chip will be made official on January 12, two days before the Galaxy S21 series is expected to be unveiled. And judging by the teaser posted by the Samsung Exynos account on Twitter, which ends with the words Exynos is back, it looks like the Exynos 2100 will really be a return to form for the Korean giant’s chipset division, and that’s a big reason to be excited after the missteps in the last couple of years.

Will Samsung turn the Exynos ship around?

Based on what we know so far, that return to form will simply be a result of Samsung giving up its lofty ambitions of having a custom processor core for its in-house SoC. The Exynos 2100 will use standard ARM cores – there will be a single super-high performance core, three performance cores, and four power-efficient cores, along with the Mali-G78 GPU rounding up the package. While a leak from earlier today suggests Samsung could use the old 7nm manufacturing process for the Exynos 2100, it’s most likely that the company will employ its new 5nm process instead, the same one that is used for the Exynos 1080 and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888.

Speaking of the Snapdragon 888, it will be interesting to see how the Exynos 2100 fares in comparison. The subpar Exynos 990 that powers the Galaxy S20 lineup has left a bitter aftertaste for Samsung fans, and this may be the company’s final chance to turn the ship around. Thankfully, whether or not it’s able to do that is a question that won’t remain unanswered for long, as we’re less than a month away from the Galaxy S21 lineup’s official launch.
