Samsung is reportedly working on a new mid-range Exynos SoC for its future phones. The Exynos 9630 is being developed as a successor to the Exynos 9610. According to a report in GalaxyClub.nl, the chip is expected to launch next year.
The Exynos 9610 SoC was launched in March 2018 and powers mid-range devices like the Galaxy A50. The chip has a clock speed of 2.3 GHz and is based on 10nm architecture. Meanwhile the rumored Exynos 9630, just like the Exynos 9820, is speculated to be based on the 8nm FinFET architecture for better performance and efficiency.
Most reports claim that the Exynos 9630 will feature in the next generation of the Samsung A series of smartphones. These claims are further corroborated by the fact that the Korean giants just recently filed nine new trademarks for the A series at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). These nine devices, namely Galaxy A11, A21, A31, A41, A51, A61, A71, A81, and A91, are expected to launch early next year and at least some of them will pack in the Exynos 9630 for sure.
The report further states that Samsung has already started the testing procedures for this new chip. But keep in mind that the Exynos 9610 took about a year after its launch before it was actually used in devices, so it’s quite hard to predict the correct time of launch or the devices for the Exynos 9630. We will be keeping a close eye on this story and will update with any new developments, so stay tuned.
