Like clockwork, Samsung will release a newer version of its flagship Exynos chipset next year to power the Galaxy S10 (or whatever that device ends up being called). The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are powered by the Exynos 9810, and if we go by tradition, the same chip will also power this year’s Note flagship. Last year, the Galaxy S8 debuted with the Exynos 8895, the successor to the Exynos 8890 that powered the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 7. And it looks like Samsung has begun work on the Exynos 9820 as the Exynos 9810 upgrade in January this year, according to an image leaked by leakster Ice universe.

The Exynos 9820 seems to have been listed as one of the projects by someone who’s involved in the development process, with the same person also listing Samsung’s 5G chip and the Exynos 9810 as his other projects. Unsurprisingly, there are no details about the chip’s internals. A move to the 7 nm process seems unlikely as Samsung might not have the production line for 7 nm chips ready by early 2019, but we can expect a more powerful GPU and slightly higher clock speeds; the Exynos 9810 is already capable of going up to 2.9 GHz, so maybe we’ll see the 3GHz barrier broken by the 9820? Power efficiency should improve as well, and support for 5G connectivity could also be included, something the company has already hinted at?

It’s too early to be sure just what the Exynos 9820 will offer, but the plot should unfold in the coming months as development on the chip advances and Samsung starts testing it on an actual device. We’re only at the beginning of April right now, though, so we could be waiting until after the Galaxy Note 9 is released to see some solid information on the company’s next flagship Exynos chipset.
