Samsung is reportedly planning to release two new SoCs later this year. Named as the Exynos 7885 and 9610, the duo is expected to come with the latest Cortex-A73 cores and Mali-G71 GPU. While the former will allegedly power up the Galaxy A7 (2018), the Exynos 9610 might sit inside the Galaxy C10.
Speaking of the specs, both the Exynos 7885 and 9610 would feature octa-core CPUs, but with different configurations. Let’s dive into some more details.
Exynos 7885 Specifications
This Exynos 7 Series SoC is going to succeed the 7880. As per the report, the Exynos 7885 shall pack two powerful Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.1 GHz each along with a hexa-core cluster of Cortex-A53 CPUs.
Similar to the Exynos 7880, the 7885 will also be made using the 14 nm LPP FinFET process. Talking of the GPU, a Mali-G71 (not G72) may sit inside the chipset.
The Exynos 7885 is presumed to come with all the necessary connectivity options starting from 4G LTE and VoLTE till dual-band Wi-Fi and GPS. As mentioned above, this chipset might first feature inside Galaxy A7 (2018).
Here are the key specs of the Exynos 7885:
14-nanometre LPP FinFET
Octa-Core CPU (2 x 2.1 GHz Cortex-A73 + 6 x Cortex-A53)
4G LTE, VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, etc.
Exynos 9610 Specifications
As the name indicates, the Exynos 9610 would be a 9 Series chipset. It is presumed to come with quad-core Cortex-A73 CPUs running at 2.4 GHz along with a power saving quad-core-A53 setup.
Moreover, the Exynos 9610 is expected to be manufactured using the latest 10 nm LPE FinFET platform. This is a very potent combination and can give the Exynos 8895 of the Galaxy S8 a run for its money.
However, it is quite unlikely that Samsung will use the 9610 for Galaxy S9. That place will probably be reserved for the Exynos 9810.
Coming to GPU, the same Mali-G71 might be present in the Exynos 9610. Connectivity-options should be similar too with an incremental increase in 4G LTE bandwidth.
Let’s shortlist the key facts about the Exynos 9610:
10-nanometre LPE FinFET
Octa-Core CPU (4 x 2.4 GHz Cortex-A73 + 4 x Cortex-A53)
