We’re in the last months of 2019, and companies are starting to move their eyes to the next year. When it comes to chipset manufacturers, things shouldn’t be different. Qualcomm is expected to give details of its Snapdragon 865 in the next month, and MediaTek is already giving hints about its new range of midrange chipsets with 5G support. When it comes to Samsung, the company is a lot more busy, since it needs to build new smartphones and new Exynos chipsets for the 2020 season. Well, today the company is teasing a new Exynos chipset that probably will drive their upcoming flagship – Galaxy S11.

The company posted a teaser on Twitter, that as you may expect doesn’t reveal much. Instead, we can see the words “new frontier” and “cutting-edge processor” hinting that this is, in fact, a flagship SoC. Details about the technical specifications of Samsung’s upcoming Exynos chip are still scarce. However, we believe that they will come with a 5nm development process. After all, Samsung Foundry completed the development of 5nm EUV chips earlier this year. According to them, these new chips offer 25% better silicone density, 20% lower power consumption or 10% more power performance.
Rumors already indicate that the Galaxy S11 will ship with a 5nm chipset – The new Exynos or the new Snapdragon 865. Yeah, Qualcomm’s upcoming flagship SoC will also go for a 5nm process, since the giant chipmaker will be partnering with TSMC for the next Snapdragon. TSMC is ready for the 5nm process as well.
