The all-new Exynos 2100 chipset from Samsung is going to be the new premium flagship chipset from the company, which has been in news for the last few months. Now the company is expected to launch the Exynos 2100 on January 12, through an online event and will be using the same for the upcoming Galaxy S21 series. The announcement for the event and the launch was made through a tweet with the hashtag “#Exynos_is_back” and “A whole new Exynos is coming“. The new series of the chipset is based on the 5nm architecture and is expected to power the Galaxy S21 series in Asia, European regions, and other regions.
Some smartphones will also be powered using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 in other markets like the US. Regions like the US, China, and South Korea would normally be expected to get Qualcomm’s top chipset, which in this case means Snapdragon 888. The processor is expected to feature an octa-core CPU with ultra-high-performance core clocking at 2.9GHz, flanked by three more high-end cores at 2.8GHz (ARM’s Cortex-A78) and four smaller cores running at 2.4GHz.
Since it supports the 5G band, it has a 5G modem as standard. GPU comes from ARM’s Mali-G78 GPU. Also, it is expected that the new processor would also support 8K videos on the smartphone. However, the company has not revealed any details about the chipset and is expected to reveal all in the January 12 event which will be online. It would be interesting to see how the chipset ranks in comparison to Apple A14 and SD 888 chipset.
