Galaxy S21 Snapdragon model might still leave Exynos in its dust

Galaxy S21 Snapdragon model might still leave Exynos in its dust

Just when you thought Samsung's Exynos chips have finally caught a break, new data allegedly puts its back in its place. As far as the Galaxy S21 is concerned, that is. There is still little concrete evidence as to which processors Samsung's early 2021 flagship will be running on but, if it keeps the status quo, there might again be some disgruntled consumers who will have to settle for a model that underperforms a different variant, simply because of where they live.

Samsung Exynos 1080 promises premium features for mid-range phones

Samsung Exynos 1080 promises premium features for mid-range phones

Qualcomm may have the lion's share of the mobile AP market but it's hardly the only one. Huawei's HiSilicon is probably out for now because of US bans but MediaTek is making up for lost time by flooding the market with countless chips. Samsung isn't taking this sitting down either, even if rumors about its semiconductor business are less than encouraging. In fact, it has just announced the new Exynos 1080 5G which, at least on paper, could give mid-range phones high-end features without going all out on the costs.

Samsung Exynos 1080 gets an unveil date – What we know

Samsung plans to show off its next homegrown smartphone chipset on November 12, promising new Exynos details for a fresh high-end processor. Although Samsung's flagship Galaxy phones typically use Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipsets in North America, versions of the handsets sold in Europe and Asia typically use Samsung's own chips.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos, Snapdragon models still have performance gaps

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos, Snapdragon models still have performance gaps

Samsung may have one of the most powerful Android phones in the market today but it also has some of the most expensive. There are definitely other options around with almost the same raw power, or even better, but some might argue that you are getting what you pay for. That might not actually be the case for Samsung's flagships, which may have different processors inside and even a different cooling system. And while the prices might be the same, JerryRigEverything's test shows the performance definitely isn't.

Galaxy S20 Fan Edition leak could irk Galaxy Note 20 owners

Galaxy S20 Fan Edition leak could irk Galaxy Note 20 owners

It's not unusual for Samsung to launch a "lite" version of its flagship models, although the name has varied from time to time. Long rumored to be in the works, the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition or FE might be close to finally launching and when it does, it might prove to be controversial to some of Samsung's customers. While the phone is definitely "Lite" in some aspects, there are also some specs that put it above the more expensive base Galaxy Note 20 model.

Galaxy Note 20 Exynos 990 tipped to be an improved version

Galaxy Note 20 Exynos 990 tipped to be an improved version

Samsung has always put the best of the best components in its flagship Galaxy phones but one critical hardware is quickly becoming a liability rather than an asset. Its own branded Exynos silicon, in spite and despite all the marketing, has had trouble catching up with its Qualcomm equivalents in recent iterations. That disparity made headlines when the Galaxy S20 launched earlier this year and Samsung seems fated to make the same mistake with the Galaxy Note 20 with one minor difference. It will use a supposedly improved version of the Exynos 990 instead.

Galaxy Note 20 processor choice in Korea might cause another scandal

Galaxy Note 20 processor choice in Korea might cause another scandal

For years, Samsung has been using a two-processor strategy for its high-end flagships, launching with a Qualcomm Snapdragon in the US and China while other markets get Samsung's own Exynos chip. It changed its tune earlier this year and even went with the Snapdragon 865 for Galaxy S20 phones sold in its own hometown. That caused quite a ruckus even within Samsung's own ranks and it seems that history will repeat itself next month when the Galaxy Note 20 launches with the Snapdragon 865+ in Korea, too.

Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy S20 Fan Edition processors make for tough choices

Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy S20  Fan Edition processors make for tough choices

The days are closing in before Samsung's second big 2020 event but it seems that the outlook may not be so positive for the company's next mobile devices. The Galaxy Z Fold 2, if that is really its name, is reportedly delayed by a month and the Galaxy Note 20 is shaping up to be a rather mixed bag. Ignoring the 5G revision of the Galaxy Z Flip, which practically leaves the Galaxy S20 Lite as the most positive thing Samsung has to show next month.

Samsung Exynos 880 bites back at Snapdragon 765, Dimensity 820

Samsung Exynos 880 bites back at Snapdragon 765, Dimensity 820

The mobile chip market has largely been dominated by Qualcomm's Snapdragons but it's hardly the only game in town. In fact, that game is going to be a bit more interesting if not dramatic due to factors outside of the smartphone and silicon industry. Other players, especially MediaTek, are rising up again to nibble away at Qualcomm's part of the pie and Samsung is once again here to remind everyone that it, too, has a thing or two up its sleeve.

Next Nintendo Switch could be powered by Samsung Exynos, AMD RDNA

Next Nintendo Switch could be powered by Samsung Exynos, AMD RDNA

The Nintendo Switch has quickly become one of the most popular consoles in just three years but it probably isn't because of its raw power. Of the three big gaming consoles, the Switch can easily be singled out as the weakest and that might not be changing drastically even with a Nintendo Switch 2. It may, however, finally ditch the aging NVIDIA Tegra X1 for something that comes from the fruit of Samsung's and AMD's recent partnership.

Samsung Galaxy phone with AMD Radeon GPU coming next year

Samsung Galaxy phone with AMD Radeon GPU coming next year

Samsung and AMD announced a partnership last year that was unsurprisingly filled with generic "forward-looking" statements and nothing to show for. It was pretty much presumed that Samsung would be licensing AMD's Radeon graphics technology for use in its own Exynos chips. That hasn't born fruit yet but the wait might worth it if these early benchmark figures for the unnamed chip will be the performance will see on new Samsung flagships next year.

Galaxy S20 Ultra Exynos variant plagued by a green tint bug

Galaxy S20 Ultra Exynos variant plagued by a green tint bug

What should have been Samsung's crowning glory this year is turning out to be a liability. Never mind that the Galaxy S20 series isn't selling well since that can always be blamed on the COVID-19 pandemic. It is, instead, the Galaxy S20 Ultra with Samsung's own Exynos chip that is giving users some doubts about the quality of Samsung's products. This latest issue may not be directly related to that processor but its mere association is already sending some users speculating about the future of Samsung's Exynos brand.
