Yesterday, Samsung announced that the first ever 12-gigabit (Gb) LPDDR4 will go into mass production later this year. OEMs must be very excited with the news because the huge RAM size means future mobile devices would be slimmer and faster. As for the next Exynos processor, the South Korean giant has not confirmed anything yet but a benchmark was recently sighted, giving us an idea about the upcoming Exynos M1 processor. We don’t even know if that’s the official name but we’re guessing it will be available first in an Android Marshmallow-powered device when the latest mobile platform launches.
This year’s numerous flagship phones from Samsung are stilled powered by Exynos 7420 processor but we’re guessing the Exynos M1 will impress the mobile industry more with twice the speed according to the details on Geekbench. There’s a mention too that the chipset will have eight CPU cores but what’s more interesting is that “universal8890” reference which could also mean the next processor will be an Exynos 8890.
Samsung’s rival when it comes to system processors is Qualcomm. The South Korean giant ditched the chip maker because of several heating issues. It seems like a good step too since Samsung has a winner…or rather several winners in the latest Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 phones. The Note 5 may use an Exynos 7422 but it’s very close to what the other S6 variants have.
