Along with Snapdragon 865+
If you hoped that the Samsung Galaxy Note20 line would be based solely on the SoC Snapdragon 865+ or that the Exynos 990 would be replaced with some kind of updated platform, it looks like you will be disappointed.
Samsung, many will not like it. Galaxy Note20 smartphones will continue to use Exynos 990 SoC failures
There was information on the Web that the new flagships will continue to use the SoC Exynos 990 in most markets. Insider Max Weinbach, also working on the XDA, said that there is no mention of any new ones in the firmware on his hands. platforms other than Snapdragon 865+. In this case, I mean One UI 2.5 firmware. Based on this, Weinbach claims that the Exynos 990 will remain an alternative to Qualcomm’s flagship platform.
Of course, this will upset many potential Note20 buyers, because there were hopes for using exclusively the Snapdragon 865+, there were also rumors about the Exynos 992, which is very different from the Exynos 990. The result is not the best situation. Exynos 990, and now in a number of scenarios, loses much not only to the Snapdragon 865, but even the Snapdragon 855. And while the Snapdragon 865+ is only a minor update, the difference between the two versions of the same smartphone will become even stronger.
