Samsung uses its own Exynos chipsets in most of its Galaxy devices. But until now these processors haven’t got any support from the customers and also criticized by many for their performance. Many users also demanded to exclude these chips from the flagship devices.
Compared to Qualcomm, the Exynos processors aren’t able to deliver the performance as per the expectations but this could change with Samsung’s upcoming processors. And for the first time, we will encounter more power efficiency and performance from Exynos against Snapdragon.
According to the latest leak from tipster IceUniverse, the upcoming Exynos 2100 will be faster than the Snapdragon 875 SoC. We will be seeing both of these processors in Samsungs upcoming Galaxy S21 series that will provide many clear insights for them.
As per the previous reports, Samsung will make many changes in this processor including the 5nm based EUV process. This chipset is expected to feature a new Cortex-X1 CPU core, three Cortex-A78 cores, four Cortex-A55 CPU Cores, and the Mali-G78 GPU. With Exynos 2100, the company will put an end to its Custome CPU cores that results in low power efficiency.
Samsung also recently launched a new Exynos 1080 5G processor that will be powering the mid-range smartphones. Built on the 5-nanometer the Exynos is designed to manage performance-intensive tasks with ease. It is based on tri-cluster architecture, the CPU of the processor consists of one Arm Cortex-A78 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores for efficiency and multitasking.
It is yet to see what Samsung will bring in its upcoming Exynos processor that will make its debut with the Galaxy S21 line up and if this new SoC will be up to expectation.
Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S21 line up which is expected to launch in mid-January 2021 will pack many high-end features along with Exynos 2100 chipset. The series will consist of three models that are Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus, and Galaxy S21 Ultra. Furthermore, these devices could also come with the S-Pen feature support although it is not yet confirmed.
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and S23 Ultra design compared in live images
Samsung is expected to hold the next Unpacked event in January next year. After leaked hands-on, new live images of the Galaxy S24 Ultra have surfaced, showing off design changes over its predecessor.
In the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung is not heavily tweaking the overall look and design. While the display is ditching curved edges, the rear design looks a lot identical to the S23 Ultra, which is hard to compare.
As you can see in the image showing the phone’s bottom, the speaker grille has ditched the holes in favor of a single linear cutout. The company has also flattened out the bottom of the S Pen.
Notably, the Galaxy S24 Ultra makes use of a titanium frame instead of aluminum, while other models follow the older frame strategy.
Galaxy S25 Design: Samsung is rumored to be redefining Galaxy image
With the S22 Ultra, Samsung introduced an island-less rear panel design, which became Galaxy’s signature design in 2023. All Galaxy phones released in 2023 follow the same design strategy, with the same set to happen next year with the Galaxy S24 series.
Well, a new rumor says that Samsung is set to redefine the Galaxy image, with notable design changes expected to be made in Galaxy S25. Tipster Revegnus says that Hubert H. Lee, a former designer at Mercedes-Benz, is working to redefine the design language of Galaxy, starting with the S25.
To recall, Hubert H. Lee has been leading Samsung’s Galaxy design department (Head of the Mobile eXperience Design Team) since December 2022. The company’s OLED 2.0 tech is expected to bring a significant upgrade to the Galaxy’s innovation journey!
Apple’s under display camera iPhone to arrive when Samsung’s UPC ages 5 years!
Apple completely ditched the display notch with the iPhone 15 lineup this year. Well, Apple is expected to launch iPhone with under-display camera technology after 2026. The company’s camera supplier has reportedly begun the development of under panel camera.
TheElec sources say that LG Innotek was found to have begun advanced development of UPC. The company is developing a special lens called the “Freeform Optic” lens to overcome the limitations of the existing under-panel camera tech – insufficient light quantity.
It is reported that Apple received under-display camera samples for iPhone from related companies but evaluated its performance as unsatisfactory. However, the US tech giant plans to apply Underpanel Face ID to the front of the iPhone before applying UPC.
By applying a freeform lens, the thickness of the peripheral lens can be controlled, thereby reducing the aberration of the optical system and optical module and increasing the light ratio around the optical system and optical module, the image quality of the area can be improved.
It’s worth noting that Samsung has been applying UPC to the internal screen of the Galaxy Z Fold series since 2021. The camera specifications are still low, with the UPC applied to last year’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 and this year’s Z Fold 5 limited to 4-megapixel.
