Samsung Galaxy Note 10 can equip with DDR5 memory and 5G modem. The upcoming iteration of the Exynos and Snapdragon flagship processors, which will be introduced in a few months, will be a serious competition for each other.
According to reports, Samsung and Qualcomm plan to switch to semiconductor manufacturing using the second-generation 7-nanometer technology. The current Exynos 9820 is manufactured using 8 nm technology, whereas the Snapdragon 855 is 7 nm, but the first generation.
In a few months, Samsung should present Exynos 9825, and Qualcomm – Snapdragon 865. Both sources say that they will be equipped with a 5G modem and will also receive support for DDR5 memory. It will offer significantly better performance. On the basis of these processors, Galaxy Note 10 will most likely work. The international model will get Exynos 9825, and the American – Snapdragon 865. This time the difference in performance will be imperceptible.
Insider Roland Quandat reports that the new chipset from Qualcomm is called as SM8250. There are two options (Kona and Huracan), and both support LPDDR5X memory, as well as UFS 3.0. According to Roland, one of them is equipped with a 5G modem, and the second is not.
It is reported that the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Pro will be presented in August, but experts disagree on the date. Some say that the Galaxy Unpacked event will take place on August 10, and others at the end of this month, and the start of sales is scheduled for September.
