Qualcomm has now detailed the last piece in the Galaxy S10 chipset puzzle – its next-gen Snapdragon 855 processor. Samsung already announced its own Exynos 9820 that will likely make a cameo there, too. We are pitting the two S10 system chips against their rivals from the second half of 2018, knowing fully well that these are the processors which will be tiding us over at least until the next fall.
Galaxy S10’s Snapdragon 855 vs Exynos 9820 specs and features
Judging from the benchmarks below, Exynos 9820 is holding its own against the Kirin 980, Apple A12 or Snapdragon 855, all of which are done on TSMC’s 7nm node. Still, the tables have turned, and it is now Qualcomm’s chipset that is made on a superior production node with more value-adding features folded in than the Exynos SoC.
You can preview the boost to expect with Snapdragon 855 in the AnTuTu score comparisons with the 845 and 9820 below, and the Geekbench database returns similar differences. We can’t wait to pit the two Galaxy S10 versions against each other and see who comes out on top.
