Samsung is reportedly developing a new Exynos chipset for mid-range smartphones. The name of the chipset as per a report from Galaxyclub.nl is Exynos 9630 and it may get debut via Galaxy A51 and the Galaxy A71 next year. The details on the chipset are pretty obscure but the report refers it to be the successor to the Exynos 9610.
Being the iterative version, the Exynos 9630 will, of course, bring some improvements with itself. Targeting the mid-range devices, the Exynos 9630 is expected to be featured in some upcoming Galaxy A-series phones which Samsung recently trademarked.
Note that Samsung’s mid-range series helped it to make some profit in the smartphones segment. It clearly announced in its Q2 2019 results that Galaxy A50 and the Galaxy A70 smartphones helped it in making strong sales. So, Samsung will only grow from here for its mid-range segment and bring some major enhancements and upgrades to them. The report as well cites the successors of these two devices which will use the Exynos 9630 SoC.
There are no details on the processor but it’s speculated to be built upon the same 8nm process as the current top model which is the Exynos 9820 in the Galaxy S10.
Recently, it was spotted that Samsung has trademarked nine new devices in its Galaxy A-series. So, it’s possible that apart from the two mentioned devices, the processor gets featured in more devices as well. As per the listing, the upcoming Galaxy A series will include Samsung Galaxy A11, Galaxy A21, Galaxy A31, Galaxy A41, Galaxy A51, Galaxy A61, Galaxy A71, Galaxy A81, and Galaxy A91 smartphones.
Well, this is the first time we are hearing about the chipset and we believe to hear more about it shortly.
