Though everything is still unclear about Samsung's new and upcoming phone, the Galaxy S8 will definitely be faster than any other Android phone. The smartphone is anticipated to be incorporated with a next-generation 10nm chips made by Samsung, which is the new Exynos 8895. It will also feature the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 830.
With this being said, the S8 will be a lot of times faster than the 14nm processors found in the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 7 phones. It is also rumored to be more battery friendly. With everything said, there is also no denying that people are thinking that the Galaxy S8 is going to beat Apple's iPhone 7.
About Apple's iPhone 8
The upcoming iPhone 8 will also feature a 10nm Apple A11 chip manufactured by TSMC. The iPhone 7, on the other hand, has a 16nm processor, the A10 Fusion, which has currently no competitors that can rival its power on the mobile market. The A10 Fusion is also created by TSMC on 16nm FinFET technology.
Samsung challenges Apple
Samsung, which is currently on an 'on-and-off' relationship with Apple when it comes to silicon features for mobile devices, on Thursday has officially unveiled its mobile chip roadmap for the near future. As of right now, Samsung is working on new 7nm, 10nm, and 14nm chips that are going to be incorporated on to upcoming Samsung gadgets. With the incorporation of these chips, there is no doubt that Samsung devices will now surpass what Apple devices can even offer.
That's if Apple also innovates new chipsets that can beat these upcoming Samsung chips.
Samsung has a goal: to be the best chipset manufacturer
Samsung is on a mission, and that's manufacturing the most powerful mobile chip built for the future, developed on 7nm process technology. The company has already confirmed that it has updated its 7nm process development in preparation for some new generation of mobile processors. Aside from the up and coming Galaxy S and Galaxy Note smartphones that will be receiving 10nm and 7nm chips in the next years to come, it'll be interesting how Apple will be reacting to this.
