At the moment the most powerful chipset that Samsung has is probably the Exynos 7420 which last we heard could be making it into the company’s upcoming flagship smartphones. However could Samsung already be planning more powerful chipsets? As it turns out it is possible. The folks at PhoneArena recently came across a LinkedIn profile in which it was revealed that Samsung was already working on more advanced versions of their Exynos chipset.
According to the profile, it shows that Samsung is working on the Exynos 7890 and the 7650, the latter apparently being the first 64-bit Exynos chipset from the company. We should note that this is hardly surprising since we doubt that Samsung has been sitting on their hands the entire time, but it’s sign that the company is becoming more aggressive with their SoC lineup.
It is unclear as to what handsets will be using these chipsets, but given that Samsung makes two major releases a year, chances are if neither of these chipsets find their way into the Galaxy S6 or the Galaxy S Edge, we could be looking at it making its way into the Galaxy Note 5 which should be launched later this year – either that or Samsung will be using these for some of their future tablets.
In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but we have heard the rumors that Samsung’s decision to drop Qualcomm was for business reasons in a bid to promote their Exynos chipsets, that and the fact that Qualcomm has confirmed that one of their larger customers has passed on the Snapdragon 810 seems to lend credence to those rumors.
