So will this fancy tech will be implemented in SD875 along with 5nm size? Goodbye 7nm era ;)

A... moreIts better to stick with 1 x1 core;2x1 core will surely make the chip huge powerfull and in android environment no game or appliaction uae that much power but its always good to have a superfast processor under the hood.Secondly as x1 cores use more power than the a78 so for that using 2x1 will lead to less efficiency but huge power.They need to just keep it 1+3+4 with that they need to upgrade the DSP and the NPU and we will have a decent flagship processor.(Well this are my opinion correct me if i am wrong)

S7 edge with 3600MAH battery had 92 hours endurance rating.
Actually SoC has become more powerful and efficient(performance per watt) but not efficient overall. If it wasn't for fabrication improvement, there wouldn't be much of a change.

A cell phone is not just an SOC, there are more components that draw power, namely Display
So no
That won’t be so

Besides 2 X1 core means pricier. As Samsung has been using 2 performance core, So, it's possible to use 2 X1 core.
But they might just settle for 1 X1 core.

Cortex A55 core at 2.5GHz will be more power hungry than cortex A78 at same speed.

Exynos 1000 might use 2 cortex X1 core.
But using 1 core at ultra high frequency will be more benchmark-friendly.

Prepare for the revolution of smartphones samsung will downgrade S/N series and only foldable phones will be true flagship, also snapdragon 875 will be 50% more expensive, so if you want flagship device prepare 2k+

Samsung buy Sd875 5nm plan to copy it into Exynos now Samsung phone will be alot costlier. Believe me.

Duck of death, 18 Sep 2020I see Apple's trll factory is busy today. I wonder why?.....Their most anticipated A14 chip is a weak upgrade over existing chip.
SD875 on the other hand is a huge upgrade over SD865.

They were getting dominated in real world performance, now they are going to be dominated in benchmarks on paper as well.
iboyz are in full throttle mode desperately convincing others that their A14 chip is still powerful.

I've seen Arena complain about softer footage for 60fps videos compared to 30fps.
But that is applicable only to a few budget/mid range phones and some budget 500$ flasghips.

Especially 1080@60. Always worse than 1080@30.

If you do not adjust shutter speed each frame will indeed be underexposed at some level compared to 30fps. Each frame has half the time to grab light and turn into info compared to 30fps.

only one defective exynos and most of you plowed the world, you obviously don't remember the snapdragon 810 that Samsung forgot to use because you could also fry your eggs on it
