The Samsung Exynos 9820 is widely expected to power the Galaxy S10. The Exynos 9820 chip will use a new architecture with two separate dual-core configurations and another quad-core cluster, according to Ice Universe.
According to the tipster, Samsung is opting for a three-cluster CPU core arrangement, featuring four lightweight Cortex-A55 cores, two Cortex-A75 (or A76) cores for medium tasks, and two fourth-generation custom Mongoose CPU cores for heavyweight tasks.
We’re looking at eight cores still, but in a 2+2+4 arrangement as opposed to four heavy cores and four light cores seen in most flagship chips.
The same configuration was already employed in the Exynos 9810 which powers the Galaxy S9 series and is assumed to be clocked at approximately 2GHz.
