Samsung has unveiled a bunch of new chips that mean the next slate of smartphones are going to be faster, more efficient and have much improved battery lives. If you go for next year's flagship Samsung Galaxy, chances are it'll come with the newly-announced Exynos 990 processor, which according to the company is offers a 20 percent improvement in performance or a power efficiency gain of up to 20 percent.

The Exynos 990 follows the launch of the 980 in September -- Samsung's first processor and 5G modem in one-- and last year's Exynos 9820/9825. It supports a 120Hz refresh rate on phone screens, which means smoother gaming and scrolling. It can handle up to six cameras (although only three at once), and has enough guts to manage Samsung's 108-megapixel image sensor, which was announced over the summer.

Samsung's Exynos 980 chip is a processor and 5G modem in one Samsung has announced the launch of the Exynos 980, the company's first mobile processor which combines a 5G modem and mobile application processor in a single chip. Until now, phones with Exynos have needed a second chip for 5G -- putting everything in one allows for more compact phone designs and better battery life. The Exynos 980 promises a fast gigabit downlink speed in 4G LTE and up to 2.55 Gbps in 5G below 6 GHz. The processor supports new WiFi 6 standard IEEE 802.11ax, and packs in two Cortex-A77 CPU cores and six Cortex-A55 cores, plus a Mali-G76 GPU for gaming and mixed reality experiences.

Samsung has unveiled a new “premium mobile processor ” that could power the company’s next-gen flagship phones — at least in some markets. It’s a 7nm processor that Samsung says should offer a 20 - percent overall performance boost over the company’s previous-gen processors thanks

As per the details confirmed by Qualcomm, we now know that the Galaxy S8 processor is going to be 20 percent faster and 25 percent more efficient than its predecessor the The new processor doesn’t have Qualcomm’s full custom Kryo cores like its predecessor, they are actually based closely

The company has also unveiled its Exynos Modem 5123, which works alongside the 990 to bring 5G connectivity to phones, boosting top speeds to 8.36 gigabits per second -- a pretty marked improvement on the 3Gbps offered in its previous modem.

Finally, Samsung has announced that it's started mass producing the industry's first 12GB low-power double data rate 4X UFS-based multichip package (uMCP). Until now, high-end phones have carried 12GB of RAM through increased capacity chips -- six 16Gb RAM chips for one 12GB chip. The new uMCP means only four 24Gb RAM chips are needed to make the same 12GB chip. What does this mean? Increased AI potential and more space for a larger battery, for a start, plus a cost effectiveness that'll mean we'll start seeing mid-tier phones getting more RAM in the coming year.

More signs point to Samsung's Galaxy S11 capturing 8K video .
It'll likely be a couple of months before Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy S11, but leaks are already starting to paint a picture of what's in store for its next flagship phone. A render that emerged last month offered a peek at what the S11 may look like, while a SamMobilereport stokes the flames of rumors it'll be capable of 8K video capture. The publication says its sources have confirmed the S11 will offer 8K recording. Processors capable of handling capture at that resolution are emerging, including Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 and Samsung's own Exynos 990.
