    Samsung testing new Exynos processor it will not bring to its fans

    Samsung has been making pretty good Exynos chipsets over the past year or so. The Exynos 980 was a compelling processor that offered slightly better performance than the competing Snapdragon 765G. The Exynos 1080 was released one year later with high-end specs, but it was not used in any Samsung phone. Now, the company is working on a new Exynos chipset that could likely succeed the Exynos 1080.

    According to GalaxyClub, Samsung (System LSI) is currently testing a new Exynos processor with model number S5E8825. Since the S5E9925 was launched as the Exynos 2200, it is expected that the S5E8825 could be launched as the Exynos 1200. It could be the successor to the Exynos 1080. Since the Exynos 1080 is a 5nm chipset, we could expect the Exynos 1200 to either stick with the 5nm process or go with a slightly improved derivative that Samsung Foundry is marketing as 4nm.

    If we were to guess, the Exynos 1200 could feature ARM's newly announced v9 architecture and a combination of Cortex-A710 and Cortex-A510 CPU cores. It was rumored that Samsung is working on multiple chipsets with AMD mRDNA2 GPU, and the Exynos 1200 could be one of those chips. We can expect it to feature an improved ISP, an integrated 5G modem with mmWave and sub-6GHz network compatibility, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 (or newer), and support for LPDDR5 RAM.

    However, it is possible that Samsung might not use the Exynos 1200 inside its own smartphones or tablets. That's because the Exynos 1080, a top-notch chip in its segment, hasn't been used in any Galaxy smartphone or tablet. Instead, it has been used in multiple high-end smartphones from Vivo, and the company could follow the same footsteps with the Exynos 1200.
