Samsung recently launched its latest flagship smartphones in the Galaxy S-series, which includes the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus, and S21 Ultra. All three devices are powered by the company’s new Exynos 2100 chipset or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, depending on the region of availability.
Although the Samsung Exynos 2100 is a big improvement over the company’s Exynos 990, the chipset still lags behind when compared to the Apple A14 Bionic chipset that powers the Apple iPhone 12 lineup.
According to some media reports, the South Korean giant is working on a new chipset with an aim to beat the performance of the Apple A14 Bionic. Further, it is also being said that this new smartphone chipset could be launched in the first half of this year.
The Samsung Exynos 2100 SoC is comparable to the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset when it comes to CPU test, however, it lags behind in terms of GPU performance.
As per earlier reports, the company is working with AMD for enhancing the graphics performance on its upcoming Exynos chips. The early performance results are also impressive and put the chipset ahead of Apple A14 by a significant margin.
With the suggested timeline for launch being somewhere in the second quarter of this year, Samsung seems to be on a path to change the launch schedule of its chipsets. As the fate of the Galaxy Note series remains unclear, it will be interesting to see what device becomes the first one to be powered by this new upcoming chipset from Samsung.
