Samsung’s processor lineup Exynos will soon get two new members namely Exynos 7885 and Exynos 9610. These are touted to be mid-range processors which are being developed with 10nm tech, a latest leak suggests.
Samsung’s attempt to launch two mid-range processors is being seen as an attempt to counter the Snapdragon 630 and Snapdragon 660 chipsets already launched by Qualcomm. Samsung Exynos 9610 is said to have similar performance to the Snapdragon 660 with clock speed of 2.4GHz. This will be paired with Mali-G71 GPU. It could feature four Cortex-A73 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores.

Meanwhile, a past report from Korean media suggested that Samsung will be skipping the 7nm chipset altogether, to jump to 6nm tech right away next year. This will undergo mass production in 2019.
