Every year, there is debate about the performance between Samsung Exynos and Qualcomm Snapdragon. Samsung often uses both of these chips for different variants of the flagships it releases during the year. Most markets will get variants with Exynos chips.
Samsung will sell Galaxy S11 with Snapdragon 865 chip in more markets?
However, the latest source from South Korea shows that Samsung will sell next year its flagship with Snapdragon chip in more markets. That means the Galaxy S11 version with Snapdragon 865 will reach more customers than its predecessor Galaxy S10.
In the past, Snapdragon variants were largely limited to the US, China, Japan, and Latin America. South Korea, Europe and the rest of the world usually get versions using Exynos chips and this will be changed by Samsung from Galaxy S11.
Exynos 990's competitor is Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. South Korean sources said that expanding the market for Samsung flagships running Snapdragon is inevitable when the manufacturer realized the performance difference between the two lines. chip. Therefore, most regions in the world will receive the Galalxy S11 version with Snapdragon 865, except Europe will have the Exynos 990 chip variant.
An unnamed Samsung official said that the performance gap between Snapdragon 865 and Exynos 990 is quite large. At least base on the specifications shown on the paper. Qualcomm uses high-performance ARM Cortex-A77 cores for Snapdragon 865, while Samsung uses two custom M5 cores and two older ARM Cortex-A76 cores for Exynos 990.
In the past, Snapdragon chips often had an advantage over Exynos in some ways, especially heat management and battery efficiency. This may be the reason why Samsung changed its strategy. Recent news suggest that Samsung has fired the entire CPU development team at its R&D Center in Austin. So in the future, Exynos chips may not use Samsung's custom Mongoose core.
However, Samsung has not officially confirmed the expansion of the market for the Galaxy S11 variant with Snapdragon 865 chip. It is not clear whether Samsung will sell this variant in South Asia and the Middle East.
