In recent times we have always received Samsung’s Exynos versions of their high end Galaxy phones but this may change with the Galaxy S11 according to a new report.
Korean site, The Elec is reporting that not only will Korea be receiving the Snapdragon 865 as the Galaxy S11 chipset but also other regions. The report says that the new Snapdragon 865 will be the go-to processor in “almost all” markets except Europe.
Australia is not specifically mentioned but we are not in Europe so we hope that we are included in the almost all section. The reason for the change is apparently due to the performance difference between the SD865 and the new Exynos 990:
Performance gap between two chipsets is large.
The SD865 supports must faster AI compute times, an improved image signal processor, and the SD is also based on the newer ARM Cortex A77 design. Apparently the decision was an obvious one and if true you wonder why Europe miss out? Hopefully we don’t too.
If the SD 865 is included in Australia then every Samsung Galaxy 11 phone here will support 5G — is that too much to ask? Will that bump up the price even more? Of course it is all rumour and speculation at this point and although we put a fair bit of credibility int he report from Korea that does not guarantee it coming here — fingers crossed it does.
