For most of the part we always know that Samsung never launches their flagship smartphones with Qualcomm SoC in India. Every time they will go with their in house SoC called Exynos. Exynos like Qualcomm is based on ARM architecture only. But there is a considerable difference between the implementation of both these SoC’s. There are only four major Android SoC providers in the world namely Samsung, Qualcomm, Huawei and Mediatek.
In tune with this info, Samsung Galaxy S10 also comes with a Exynos powered SoC instead of Qualcomm and earlier benchmarks reveals that Exynos 9820 is slower than Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 (SD 855);
SD 855 is a 7 nm processor where as Exynos 9820 is 8 nm. Though the difference is small but a single nanometre can also result in the loss of thousands of transistors. In the tests like Speedometer and PcMark Work 2 Exynos 9820 lags behind both Huawei Kirin 980 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. This is definitely a poor performance from Samsung’s ARM based processor. But in case if we compare Exynos 9820 with it’s predecessor Exynos 9810 there are some significant gains on the horizon. These are mostly the result of node shrink to 8 nm
