Next year, the technology world will be witnessing a real competition in the smartphone world, the next two Exynos and Snapdragon 865 processor chips will be produced on the second generation 7nm process technology of Samsung. Currently, the Snapdragon 855 in the Galaxy S10 for the US is still only produced on the first generation 7nm process while the Exynos 9820 for the international version is on the 8nm process.
However, what makes tech experts most concerned is whether Qualcomm and Samsung’s 5G modems will be true system chips or are still separate entities like this year. The demand for two separate components on the Snapdragon 855 has forced many phone manufacturers to produce their own “5G” versions, often with bulky bodies and large batteries. Both users and analysts expect that this trend will no longer exist next year.
The latest news about the Snapdragon 865 processor chip is that there will be two versions, with and without a 5G connection, like this year, but it is still not clear whether the 5G version is integrated with the modem chip system .
Recently, the source from Roland Quandt (accurate forecasting of technology information) only confirmed two models codenamed Kona and Hurracan, respectively “a 5G capable modem, a modem has an integrated 5G modem (SDX55) “.
The point is that both will support the latest generation of DDR5 mobile memory and the fastest UFS 3.0 storage standard that the OnePlus 7 Pro is offering. Samsung has announced that it is ready for mass production for LPDDR5 memory chips. Unfortunately, they have not been available on the Galaxy Note 10 that will be integrated on Galaxy S11 next year.
Samsung recently announced it is planning to integrate a 5G modem into the processor chip (most likely its Exynos chip), providing faster speeds than any chip on the market. Expected, this modem will appear in Galaxy S11 with another version running Snapdragon 865 chip.
