Samsung tweeted a teaser for the next Exynos chipset. It didn’t reveal too much, but those “new frontier” and “cutting-edge processor” labels hint at a new flagship chip.
Earlier this year, Samsung Foundry completed development of 5nm EUV chips, which are expected in 2020. According to the company, those promise 25% better silicone density, 20% lower power consumption or 10% higher performance at the same power draw.

As you can imagine, rumors are swirling that the Galaxy S11 will launch with a 5nm chipset – the new Exynos or the next Snapdragon flagship. Qualcomm is expected to go with TSMC for the next Snapdragon, as TSMC is also ready to deliver 5nm chips in 2020.
The Samsung Tech Day 2019 conference starts today with the keynote scheduled for a few hours from now. This will be a perfect venue to announce a new chipset. Note that here are rumors that Samsung will unveil the Exynos 9630 – a mid-range chipset – so we may have to wait a while longer before we see the Galaxy S11 chipset.
