There have been some rumors recently that Samsung has moved GPU production in-house and that the company may introduce its own GPU for its smartphones down the road. It may not do that with the Galaxy S10, though. A new report out of China suggests that the Galaxy S10 GPU might be ARM’s Mali-G76 MP18. It happens to be ARM’s first mobile GPU based on the 7nm process technology.

The Galaxy S10 is expected to be powered by the Exynos 9820 which will be the successor to the Exynos 9810 in the Galaxy S9. Qualcomm’s equivalent Snapdragon processor will power the Galaxy S10 in markets where Samsung does not ship flagships with its own chip.

Chinese leakster Ice Universe, who has been right on multiple accounts in the past, suggests that the Exynos 9820 will be paired with ARM’s Mali-G76 MP18 GPU. ARM announced its flagship GPU in May this year and it will be built on the 7nm process technology by TSMC.

The process technology improvement should offer generational bumps in performance and power efficiency compared to the existing high-end GPU, the G72, at the same clock speeds. It can only be ascertained just how well these generational improvements translate into real-world performance once the handset is actually out and that’s not going to happen until early next year.
