With the debut of the iPad Air 4, the Apple A14, which is the first to launch the iPhone 12 series with a 5nm processor, began mass production and commercial use, announcing that mobile devices have officially entered the era of 5nm process technology. At the same time, the representative 5nm chip of the Android camp-Snap Dragon 875 is also about to debut. According to the usual practice in previous years, if nothing else, Samsung’s new Galaxy S21 series will be the first batch of commercial Snapdragon 875 mobile phone manufacturers next year.
According to the latest news released by foreign media, the new Samsung Galaxy S21 series will still provide three versions of the medium cup, large cup and super large cup, which is basically the same as the previously exposed news. The super large cup will continue to be named Galaxy S21 Ultra. In addition to the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 mobile platform, Samsung’s Exynos 1000 mobile platform version will also be available in some markets such as South Korea . The platform is also the flagship processor of the 5nm process. It is expected that the performance strength of the two chips will be similar.
In other respects, according to previously exposed news, both the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 and Samsung Exynos 1000 on the new Samsung Galaxy S21 series will adopt the “1+3+4” eight-core design, of which “1” is the super core Cortex X1. The peak performance is 23% higher than the Cortex A78, which can be called a “super core” in the true sense. At present, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 AnTuTu running score has exceeded 650,000 points, so the performance gap between the Snapdragon 875 and Exynos 1000 chips that both use the Cortex X1 super core will be further narrowed, and there will be no pressure to exceed 700,000 points.
It is reported that the new Samsung Galaxy S21 series flagship will be officially unveiled in Q1 of 2021, and will be first launched with two 5nm flagship chips, Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 and Samsung Exynos 1000. We will wait and see for more details.
