According to that report, Samsung officers had performed a number of checks on the Exynos 990 and had discovered that the chipset was not so good as the Snapdragon 865. That, mixed with the truth that 5G is necessary in South Korea, reportedly led Samsung to go for the Snapdragon 865 chipset within the S20 models being bought in its house turf.
Now, in an official assertion despatched to Sammobile, Samsung has responded saying that there isn’t a distinction within the efficiency supplied by the Exynos 990 and the Snapdragon 865. The firm’s assertion reads: “The Galaxy S20 is a smartphone that’s been reimagined to change the way you experience the world and depending on the region, the Galaxy S20 will either ship with the Exynos 990 or the Snapdragon 865. Both the Exynos and Snapdragon processors go through the same strict and rigorous, real-life testing scenarios in order to deliver a consistent and optimal performance over the entire lifecycle of the smartphone.”
The concept that the Exynos 990 and Snapdragon 865 are equals is questionable at finest. Even in “real-world” efficiency, if we cease contemplating benchmark scores, it’s very evident to anybody who has used the Exynos-packed variant of a Samsung flagship (as I’ve) that it suffers not solely by way of uncooked efficiency, but additionally by way of battery life.
I’ve mentioned it earlier, and I stand by it, that Samsung ought to stick to Exynos chipsets, however most likely not on its flagships. We do want the competitors in opposition to Qualcomm to not solely survive however thrive, and Huawei’s Kirin chipsets aren’t going to do it, particularly since they’re largely utilized in Huawei telephones, which now don’t have Google apps, and are a a lot more durable promote exterior of China.
