Samsung Exynos with AMD GPU claimed to beat Apple A12 Bionic

Samsung's Exynos has been the subject of much controversy and drama in the past months, especially as its performance gap with Qualcomm's equivalent Snapdragon chips became more prominent.

Samsung Exynos with AMD GPU might actually arrive this year

Galaxy A82 5G might bring back the flipping slide-out camera

It almost feels like a distant dream or nightmare, depending on where you stand, but it wasn't really too long ago when smartphone makers played around with designs with a singular purpose in mind, banishing the inescapable top bezel. While most have now embraced the punch-hole cutout, there was a time when phones sported eccentric mechanisms like popup cameras and sliding displays.
