For several years now, Samsung has supplied its main flagship models in two variants. Every utilizing both the latest Qualcomm processor or the most recent Samsung-made Exynos chipset. However, that is about to change.
This update comes to us from Twitter by evleaks. The leakster’s track record is sort of good inaccuracy relating to leaks, and he reports we may see Exynos chipsets on Samsung Galaxy Note10 models in the United States, except for Verizon’s.
In keeping with evleaks, Samsung is only going to make use of Qualcomm chipsets on Verizon variants of the Samsung Galaxy Note10 – the Snapdragon 855 to be exact. In any other case, we’d expect to see the Exynos 9825 on all different carriers within the U.S. and around the world.
The last time Samsung supplied its flagships with the Exynos processors was with the Samsung Galaxy S6. Maybe with the mobile horizon expanded by 5G-compatible smartphones, Qualcomm and Samsung need to shuffle their distribution around.
The exciting part is that only Verizon variants would nonetheless keep the Qualcomm chipsets. While we may assume this has to do with the truth that Verizon may need the Galaxy Note10 to be compatible with its legacy CDMA network, we’ve recognized that a few of Verizon’s phones are LTE-only and don’t even support its legacy 3G network.
Whatever the case may be, there isn’t a reason for US customers to be concerned with the Exynos variants. The two chipsets are comparable in performance and battery life.
We look ahead to learning more at Samsung’s Unpacked event, taking place in New York City next week on August 7.
