Exynos 8895 SoC Clocked at 3.0 GHz to Power the Upcoming Galaxy S8 & S8 Edge

Recently launched Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to come with the Exynos 8893 processor, an upgraded version of Exynos 8890 processor. But the company opted for the same Exynos 8890 SoC that also powers the Galaxy S7 & Galaxy S7 Edge. The upcoming flagship devices are rumoured to sport Exynos 8895 SoC. While nothing is made official, the leaks from China reveals some key information about the processor powering both the Galaxy S8 & Galaxy S8 Edge.

The device is said to score 2301 on single-core and 7019 on multi-score in the initial testing. For comparison, the 2.34GHz Apple A10 chipset scored 3506 on single-core and 6073 on multi-score. We expect the Exynos 8895 to score even better once the Galaxy S8 are available in the market and will be clocked at 3.0GHz. The CPU architecture is said to be optimised to consume less than 5W power. In return, we can expect battery life to be longer with the upcoming Galaxy S devices.

As the Galaxy S8 will be first Samsung smartphone to feature dual camera setup, the image processing on this new chipset is said to improve by 70% to 80%. There are earlier rumours that the company is testing to built the Exynos 8895 processor on 10nm architecture and said to offer 30% better performance than the current Exynos 8890 processor.

Earlier this Snapdragon unveiled the Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor and last month it has unveiled the upgraded Snapdragon 821 processor offering 10% better performance than the predecessor. The Exynos 8895 SoC was imported to India under the codename Kanchen for internal testing. After the huge success of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in the first half of 2016, in the second half, Samsung is facing hard times with the explosions of Galaxy S7 & recently launched Galaxy Note 7 devices.

But with the Galaxy S8 devices, the company might come with a big marketing budget to erase the battery explosions remarks and counter the iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus. While the Galaxy S devices will be unveiled at the MWC in Barcelona every year, but the Galaxy S8 can be unveiled a bit earlier, as the future sales of Galaxy Note 7 will not a high as sales in the first two weeks. Stay tuned for more updates!
