Samsung’s flagship phones are known to return in two processor variants. The Snapdragon variant is going to be sold in China, the USA, and its native country South Korea; and then there comes the Exynos variant sold in other markets including Africa, Europe, and along the Middle East, not yet in India though . The upcoming Samsung Note20 series will follow an equivalent trend.
It has been reported that the Snapdragon variant of the Note20 series are going to be powered by the newly-announced Snapdragon 865 Plus. However, it appears the reports that the Exynos variant will accompany an Latest Exynos 992 processor are false.
A tweet by leaker Ice Universe has revealed that the Galaxy Note20 series will have the Exynos 990 processor that powers the Galaxy S20 series and not the rumored, more powerful Exynos 992 chipset.
His tweet was corroborated by Max Weinbach of XDA-Developers who tweeted that he has seen no reference of the chipset within the firmware he has his hands on.
This is surely devastating news for those that are going to be purchasing the Exynos variant of the samsung Note20 series. According to a benchmarking website, the reports suggest that the Exynos 990 doesn’t even match the performance of the Snapdragon 865 processor .
Comparisons between the Exynos 990 and Snapdragon 865 have shown that the previous lags significantly when it involves GPU performance. this suggests there’ll even be a wider gap between it and therefore the new Snapdragon 865 Plus.
