Samsung to design a custom Exynos chip for Google

09 April 2020
No custom Samsung cores, instead it will reportedly use ARM designs that are yet to be announced (Cortex-A78 and Mali Borr).

Sort by:

Good times are coming for Exynos, as long as they can move back to arm design and produce 5nm it should be decent chips. Cant wait S21 version of exynos with arm cpu and probably amd gpu, to see it back on track to rival snapdragon

There are a ton of rumours suggesting they are ditching attempts at a flagship processor this year. I'm gutted, as I hoped to get the Pixel 5. But my 2XL will do for now. I don't need 5g, so no incentive for me to go for a 7 series 5g enabled chip.

Kolev3000, 10 Apr 2020Great question! I think it will be the one for the Pixel 5.... moreRumours, and there have been plenty, suggest that Pixel 5 devices will not use a top end chip. Whatever chip they use, I can't see it be one that they've just signed up for. Doesn't give them long enough to work with it, if it isn't yet developed.

exynos is such a powerhouse eaters.

It is not going to be a Snapdragon 865 unless Google wants to commit suicide with a $1,000+ plus phone. Plus it's only going to be 5.8 inches. I don't think we will see an 865 in anything under 6 inches. We won't actually know until google releases information but that is what most people have been reporting.

Because the 765G is the next platform after the 730 on the Pixel 4a. So if Google choose to do that, what will be the processor on the 5a? Also Google wants to ditch Qualcomm because they overpriced the S865 chips, maybe also the way they integrate the 5g connectivity too (Who cares that the modem is seperated to reached 7 Gb/s... The 5g Network gonna take years to be able to reach those speeds anyway), not because they don't want to use the chips on particular. They're great chance that Samsung will not do that because the revenu of the company not only revolved towards SoCs, fortunately.

Hmm, they are considering maybe to one-up the SQ1 chip maybe by next fall? Interesting.

I think this is gonna be one of the best Exynos chipsets in a while.

This surely isn't going in the Pixel 5... This is likely not for that. The Pixel 5 is likely a Snapdragon 765G.

Ain't no WAY I would trust a piece of silicon that Google had a hand in designing

Snapdragon is the king.
