The previous Exynos – Exynos 990 SoC was based on the 7nm process and it faced several thermal throttling issues. However, according to the tipster Ice Universe says that the Exynos 2100 is expected to build on 5nm manufacturing process, similar to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor and Apple’s A14 SoC.
It will most likely to consist ARM‘s Cortex-X and Cortex-A cores with a 1+3+4 arrangement. It will be an octa-core processor and will be paired with in-house Mali-GPUs. The combination could include one Cortex X1 core clocked at 2.91GHz, three Cortex A78 cored clocked at 2.8GHz and four Cortex A55 cores clocked at 2.4GHz.
