Much like the previous generation Galaxy S smartphones, the new Samsung Galaxy S10 Telephones Are Also offered in two processor variants — one with Exynos 9820 SoC and the other with Snapdragon 855 SoC.
The consumers in India will Find the Exynos 9820 SoC version of this Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e. Despite being flagship SoCs, these include two different processors, so there will be some obvious performance differences between both. Now, a book has published the benchmarks for both chip variants of their official Galaxy S10+ components, which reveal that Exynos 9820 variant performing badly in contrast to the Snapdragon 855 version.
As per a report at AnandTech, which managed to get its hands on both Snapdragon 855 and Exynos 9820-powered variations of the Samsung Galaxy S10+, the Exynos 9820 shows significant improvements during the last year’s Exynos 9810 and Snapdragon 845, however it falls short of Snapdragon 855 also as Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 980.
The Snapdragon 855-powered Galaxy S10+ unit performed better in both PCMark Work 2.0 and Speedometer 2.0 benchmarks. The AnandTech report adds that Samsung has managed to significantly reevaluate the Snapdragon 855 for the Galaxy S10 telephones as the Samsung mobile’s performance is much better than the functionality of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 Reference Device. Additionally, the publication notes that Samsung seems to be repaired that the scheduler slowness issue which has been present in previous generations of their Exynos processors.
It is not always the case that Samsung’s Exynos processor is slower than Qualcomm’s offerings, as was the case with the Samsung Exynos 8895 SoC outperforming the Snapdragon 835 SoC about the Samsung Galaxy S8, this time around, it looks like the gap between the 7nm (Snapdragon 855) and 8nm (Exynos 9820) fabrication procedure may have caused a significant gap in functionality.
“We must remember that Samsung’s chipset not only has to fix its own microarchitectural performance problems, but also comes with a process manufacturing drawback as the chip is produced on a (theoretically) inferior 8nm procedure,” said AnandTech’s Andrei Frumusanu, when noting that battery life comparisons have yet to be manufactured.
As we mentioned previously, India will be getting the Exynos-variant of this Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, and Galaxy S10e phones. So, if you’re planning to purchase the telephone in India, it is possible to expect see a technically slower Galaxy S10 compared to North American versions. It is important to note here that it will be really hard to notice any real life impact concerning the functionality on the Exynos 9820 version of the phone.
