Samsung’s Exynos 9610 chipset is probably it’s finest piece of silicone for the mid-range segment. It powers the recently announced Galaxy A50 and is based on the 10nm fabrication process. The chip was launched last year in March and that means it’s time for an upgrade except there’s no official info yet. However, we do have this new leak about the Exynos 9710 that sheds some light on the key features of the upcoming new mid-range chip.
IceUniverse, who is a known source for Samsung-related info says the Exynos 9710 will be based on the 8nm process. That in itself is enough to tell us that it will be a powerhouse mid-range. Needless to say, it will gain performance improvements and battery efficiency due to the 8nm architecture. As far as the cores are concerned, there are four Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.1GHz and four Cortex-A55 cores at 1.7GHz while a 650MHz Mali-G76 MP8 GPU will be tasked for all GPU work. More detailed info regarding the chip is still awaited but we could soon see it as Samsung could launch the chip sooner rather than later.
In comparison, the Exynos 9610 has four Cortex-A73 cores at 2.3GHz and four 1.6GHz Cortex-A53 cores and its GPU is a Mali-672 ARM chip.
